Hard Noise is thrilled to bring you part two of a new documentary tracking The Warriors’ process of creating their ambitiously realized latest record. Watch part two of Follow Your Bliss: The Making of Monomyth below. Click here for part one.
Formed in Tehachapi, California in 2002, The Warriors charged onto the scene with a sonic barrage of hardcore, punk, and metal influences with debut album War is Hell in 2004. They continued to build a formidable presence in early ’00s crossover circles, bringing in new influences, broader visions, and heavy-hitter guests like Lemmy Kilmister and Lou Koller into the fold with each new album.
In the years since 2011’s See How You Are, The Warriors have been relatively quiet. Now, they’ve signed to Pure Noise Records and released their first new album in almost a decade. Monomyth is a finely-crafted, progressively brutal effort produced by the band’s drummer, Roger Camero. Its themes of transcendentalism and mythic hero’s journeys are expressed with eclectic musical influences, creating a new hardcore sound that’s a culmination of the band’s history.
