Warmachine are from Toronto, Canada. The band was founded back in 1994 and they have released 3 demos.  

“The Beginning of the End” was recorded in 2003 / 2004 with producer Murray Daigle and co-producer David Ellefson (ex Megadeth); it was released independently in 2004 and now re-released on Nightmare Records.  

“The Beginning of the End” contains eleven killer tunes, throw in some Death Angel, Iced Earth, Forbidden and then add a lot of melody and we got one of the best old school Metal albums ever.  

All tracks are filled with neck breaking riffs and great melody lines that will envy all Modern metal groups, the best part are the vocals by Lead singer and guitarist Joe Di Taranto - wow that man kicks some serious ass.  

Most impressive tracks are the riff attack in “Eye For an Eye”, the Death Angel like “Taunted Souls”, and the two catchiest songs on the album “Fate” and “Eternally”, well I could mention all the tracks on this fantastic album, because there aren’t any weak spots.  

Killer production, killer album - BUY.
