Wartorn - Iconic Nightmare (Southern Lord)
If you love From Ashes Rise and Tragedy and can't get enough of that modern epic d-beat crust sound then you'll like it. Plenty of pickslides, metal solos and fist pumping chorus bits.
Unfortunately this sound is ten-a-penny now and Wartorn don't do anything particularly special with it. It's exactly what you think a band called Wartorn doing From Ashes Rise type stuff would sound like.
Unless they happened to be touring near me I can't imagine I'd ever listen to this record again.
