Future Hits 038: Warpath

July 6th, 2009

The pureblood thrash of Warpath has already won them the top spot of Terrorizer Magazine‘s latest annual readers’ poll. That’s a mark of a band destined for Future Hits right there – and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Richard Goss, and lead guitarist Pete Hawthorne, both agree.

Sounds like: Megadeth, Testment, fours guys who take absolutely no shit from anyone.

Thrash Hits verdict: Warpath don’t give two tugs of a dead dog’s cock about fad-thrash, ironic nostalgia, or most of the people of Swansea. What they do care about are all the things that made thrash great in the first place – riffs so fast they blur at the edges, snarling vocals that seethe with raw aggression, and the righteous banging of heads.

What was your highlight of 2008?
M: Having a whisky with Dave Mustaine.
O: It’s a mixture of two. Touring Europe with Megadeth was a dream come true – great guys and great band – but also the tour with Exodus. We’ve had so much fun in 2008.

What was the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
M: Having to drop off the Satyricon tour due to my brothers jaw trying to have sex with a concrete floor.
O: In Rotterdam, I collapsed and fractured my jaw and split my chin open, forcing us to cancel the Satyricon tour. SHIT. You win again, Gravity. For the band, it was missing Hellfest. We were so unbelievably gutted we couldn’t make it due to problems at the ferry port. We seriously hope they’ll have us back to make up for it.
