“Within the first minute of opener “Moving On”, the main and harmony vocals from guitarist Joe Di Taranto tell the story - warm, inviting and with that slight King’s X meets Into Eternity against AOR feel, Warmachine just know how to capture your attention not just with strong riffing, timing and arrangements. Other songs contain those rich soothing twin guitar lines that remind me of many European brethren like Accept, Iron Maiden or possibly latter day American act Riot - “Chalk Lines And Bone


Hailing from Toronto, Canada, WARMACHINE is a promising, young four-piece power/thrash metal band that strives to carry the torch of this coveted genre. Their music consists of incorporating classic heavy metal influenced riffs, intertwining them with tasteful, catchy dual guitar melodies and harmonies, along with exceptional soloing that mirrors the very best of what true-to-heart heavy metal has to offer. Established in 1994 by Joe Di Taranto (vocals, lead/rhythm guitars), WARMACHINE has come an extremely long way since their humble beginnings. Their 2001 demo was critically acclaimed and extremely successful, despite the lack of backing or promotion from a record label. Said demo also awarded WARMACHINE as one of the “Top Ten Unsigned Bands” courtesy of metal media giant Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles magazine (BW&BK). With the release of this demo the band gained a very large and loyal fan base spanning the globe.

In late 2004 the band entered the studio to record their debut album, which was co-produced by Murray Daigle (Emerald Rain/Cauterize) and David Ellefson (former Megadeth bassist). “The Beginning of the End” debuted in Feb. 2006, and was an extremely successful release. It is considered by many in the metal word as a “new classic”. The album was a hit with North American radio, reviewers the world over, and metal fans everywhere. The album hit #3 on HMV’s “Top Metal Albums” Chart for over 10 consecutive weeks. Certainly “The Beginning of the End has assisted in heralding WARMACHINE as one of Canada’s most respected true metal bands.

Having now recorded their second full length album “Left for Dead”, WARMACHINE are currently in search of a new record label. Whilst perfecting their unique sound, the band has created a truly incredible album. Filled with infectious melodies and enormously heavy grooves, “Left for Dead” is a modern metal masterpiece that is destined for great success.
