Raleigh Groove Metal WoR Cover The Offspring’s “Come Out And Play”

 



WoR, groove metal hailing from Raleigh, USA unleashed their debut album “Prisoners” on August 7th of this year via Bungalo Records/Universal. On the full length, the band takes a grinding chainsaw with a pummeling battering ram to pulverize a heavy cover version of one of The Offspring‘s most beloved tracks “Come and Out Play”, which the band is sharing today with a streaming visualizer below.

The band comments on covering the track:

“We chose this iconic song for its energy, attitude, and lyrical message. We felt it spoke to the overall theme of our album, which discusses similar topics such as rebellion, anger, and rage. We were messing around at practice one day and were playing this song and felt that we could really inject some new life into it. We bumped up the tempo, tuned down, threw a breakdown in the middle, and incorporated Bobby Demoss’ trademark screaming vocals to achieve that goal.”

Listen to “Come and Out Play” on YouTube (Visualizer).

Throwing in elements of thrash, metalcore, and even hardcore punk, everyone in WoR has taken a different musical path and the variety of influences shows through in the unique and original sound on their debut release “Prisoners”, which is an extremely energetic journey from start to finish. Groovy, raw, and old school, WoR is suitable for all fans of metal especially those with an interest in Machine Head, Sepultura, and Gojira.

The band explains the debut full length:

“This album has been in the works for several years and we finally get to show you what we have been working on nonstop for the last year. From front to back, this album is meant to take you on a heavy metal journey. It features groovy tracks such as Predator, brutal songs such as Caged, and melodic anthems such as VI Kings. While the songs are groovy and meant to give your neck whiplash, the lyrics are deep and thought out. The messages behind these songs are ones of resilience and overcoming. If you enjoy heavy riffs, melodic overtones, and just straight-up angry and in your face METAL, this album is for you!”

“Prisoners” is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play.
