The music scene is plagued with an oversaturated horde of metalcore and post-hardcore bands. How hard is it to rise to the top of the heap? Extremely. But don’t tell that to Ocala, Florida-based metalcore newcomers Wage War. They’re fairly new to the scene for most, but 2015’s Blueprints was a solid effort that showcased the band’s no frills blend of modern metalcore and even a little melodic death metal for good measure. Pair the album with a massive run on Warped 2016 and a number of supporting and opening tours, and you’re left with the next great band from Ocala. Remember when A Day To Remember received the keys to the city recently? Wage War is poised to experience that kind of popularity.
They’re a testament to the fact that your favorite bands started out as a local band, Wage War is rising awfully fast to the top of the metalcore landscape, and you’d be remiss to miss out – so don’t. 2017’s Deadweight cemented the band as a popular support act, and the final edition of the Vans Warped Tour has already seen the band command more attention seemingly by the day. You won’t want to miss out on what these Ocala heavy hitters are delivering.
