For over a decade now, the Polish power trio Warfist (Pavulon on skullcrushing, Wrath on bulldozer, and Mihu on vokills and chainsaw) fight the good metal fight, prolifically keeping the underground spirit alive across myriad splits, demos, and their debut EP, Hell Tyrant Rising, on Iron Bonehead in 2008.
But it was their debut album, 2014’s The Devil Lives in Grünberg, where Warfist introduced themselves with a nuclear-powered bang: like the perfect, most poisonous lovechild between Motörhead and Sodom, this first full-length killed with power.
Alas, along comes Metal to the Bone to crush posers further underfoot. Very fucking aptly titled, Metal to the Bone explodes with a hard-charging, hard-partying attack of blackthrash-meets-rock ‘n’ roll. But whereas many of their contemporaries similarly offer obeisance to lust, filth, and sleaze, Warfist are truly living it here, and throttle the listener with an authenticity that’s far from gimmicky “fun.” Feel the full force of Warfist in your face!
