Over seven years, Warbeast has gifted fans with three studio albums and an EP filled with pulse-pounding Texas metal. It's a local supergroup made up of metal veterans: vocalist Bruce Corbitt from Rigor Mortis; guitarist Scott Shelby, formerly of Gammacide; and drummer Joey "Blue" Gonzalzes from Philip H. Anselmo and The Illegals, Superjoint and The Black Moriah. Warbeast offers music birthed in the legendary '80s underground Texas metal scene. Over the years, the band has had other members come and go. The latest lineup includes guitarist Drew Shoup and bassist Lyric Ferchaud, but the band's future was altered with Corbitt's recent diagnosis of Stage 3 esophageal cancer. But it released its magnum opus of Texas metal with its third full-length studio album from Anselmo's Housecore Records, Enter the Arena, in August. "I want people to feel like they've been hit with a sledgehammer 10 times in a row when they hear this," says Corbitt of the release. "As long as they feel strongly about [it], we've accomplished our mission."
