Warbeast: Bruce Corbitt Discusses Phil Anselmo and the Passing of Mike Scaccia

Texas-based thrash metallers Warbeast thrive off meat-grinding riffs, jackhammer double bass, a range of lyrical topics, and 180-degree hooks. Made up of veteran rockers that have been creating music for decades --the members' resumes include Rigor Mortis, Gammacide, and Demonseed-- Warbeast formed in 2006, and in 2010 released its debut, Krush the Enemy, via Phil Anselmo's underground label Housecore Records. The band further refined its approach with its second full-length, Destroy, which was released on Tuesday, January 8.
