NEWS: Intoxication is the only way for WarCall!

Splitting an album into two halves, Canadian Metal quartet WarCall released “Dead End Pt 1” via their own label Plan B Music in April and seven months on, the ingeniously titled “Dead End Pt 2” will drop on 26th November. While the first part was inspired by the likes of Motorhead and Slayer with an in your face vibe, the second is said to be more Progressive and atmospheric leaning on legends like Iron Maiden. The lead single is “Intoxicated” that comes complete with a music video…

The band comments: “Overall, the two EPs together are a collection of 9 songs, 9 stories about struggle. We have let the events of 2020 influence the process and the mood of the two EPs, while still aiming for a timeless production that will age well in time. The title and artwork represent the doom and gloom of life in the year 2020 and how the human race reacts in the face of death and uncertainty. With the impossibility to meet to even take a band picture, WarCall presents themselves as fictional post-apocalyptic warriors, a subtle comment and nod to the current events that marked the year 2020. And while more atmospheric in their nature, the 5 songs from Dead End pt. 2 are delivered in a raw package. At first, we wanted to work on the songs a little more in order to achieve a different atmosphere than Dead End pt. 1. We experimented with sounds and textures to add in the places we thought needed it, but each time, we preferred the original version. In the end, we chose to go ahead with the songs as they are in their purest form. The first single from Dead End pt. 2, Intoxicated is a good representation of the thrash metal side of the band with its fast-paced riffing for a no-nonsense mosher. The challenge we gave ourselves for this song was to be able to come up with something interesting, not too repetitive with only four riffs. Interesting approach. For the video clip, it is a not-too-serious, DIY film about the gig scene every underground band is going through these days
