- Parting Ways
- 3rd Mar, 2014
Fans and Friends,
It has been known for a while that we parted ways with founding member Logan Smith, so it is only appropriate that we address it here.
Over the course of time, Logan's interests had been slowly drifting away from Warseid and music in general. So, at the end of 2013, and after much deliberation we made the mutual decision to go our separate ways. We remain close friends with Logan, and he will act occasionally as a mind in the creative process, but he is no longer a member of Warseid.
Kyle Cushman has taken on the additional position of vocalist, and we are very excited about what this change means for our first full length album, which we are still hard at work on.
- What to expect when you're expecting more Warseid!
- 23rd Sep, 2013
The summer has come and gone (almost) with a few fantastic shows and a lot of writing. We
have a good chunk of the album done. Hopefully it won't be too long before we can give you
a taste, but there's a lot to be done before it is complete.
You can, however, expect to hear a few new songs when we hit the road at the end of the year! More details on that to come. In the meantime, check out what Joe has been up to with his new group: Fauve !
We also have the first photos of the line up since the release of WFLU up in the gallery and members sections. Take a look.
- Second Warseid update in 2013!
- 16th May, 2013
The semester is finally over, which means we're back for the summer!
We will be spending most of this one writing music for the full length, which is well in the works at this point. We hope to give you all a taste of it eventually, but it's not near that point yet. Hopefully that will change this summer!
We will also be hitting the road for a few shows this summer with some great US folk metal acts including: Wilderun, Winterhymn, Aether Realm and Earthen to name a few! So be sure to catch us out there!
There are a few other tentative things we are talking about doing this summer, but they are all still quite subject to change. So you'll have to wait to hear more about them.
Great to be back in full swing!
- First Warseid update in 2013!
- 4th February, 2013
We have been back a few weeks now from our weekend traverse with Lords of the Drunken Pirate Crew having incurred only minor technical difficulties, a near mugging, and a car chase! (St. Louis is a magical place) There is a nice gallery up of live photos from the shows courtesy of Lisa J!
The semester has started up again, so as always we will be taking it a bit slower until the summer, but we are still hard at work on a full length. In fact, we will be revealing a brand new song on March 8th right here in Madison at the RSR! Other details about the full length will have to remain secret for some time yet, but rest assured it is coming. Until then, you will have to make due with the sneak peaks we'll be offering at shows from now on!
Take care everyone,
- New Warseid update!
- 3rd October, 2012
We have a great many things to announce this day! First and foremost, it is with sorrow that we must announce that Brandon Salaway has relocated permanently to Nashville, Tennessee in order to pursue an individual musical career and attend college. He remains a close friend and we will likely continue to work with him in the future, but he is no longer a permanent member of the band. To that end, it is with joy that we reveal the identity of our new lead guitarist and the newest member of Warseid: Mr. Steven Hoff!
Steve has been rehearsing with us for a little over a month now and has well shown his talent and personality. We are happy to say that both are a terrific fit. He has learned the existing lead parts and added his own personal touch to them, and has jumped in and is contributing heavily to the writing process, which brings us to our next announcement: the first ever Warseid full length.
That's right, we are officially working on a full length album. We have no date or name to release as of yet, but we have several songs in the works and a concept around which the album will be based. As more details become set in stone we will reveal them to you. But, for the time being you will just have to wait patiently and enjoy Where Fate Lies Unbound!
P.S. Read more about Steve in the updated members section!
- "Where Fate Lies Unbound" released!
- 23rd August, 2012
It's been awhile since our last update. For those of who still unaware, we have released "Where Fate Lies Unbound" to the world and we are incredibly proud to share this latest creation with you all! You can find the entirety of the EP along with a few new t-shirt designs in the downloads section. Enjoy!
Since the release of "Where Fate Lies Unbound" we have been very busy with promotion and booking and have some rather large plans in the works for the future. And of course, we have also been actively writing material for future releases to be announced down the road, which we can certainly say we are very excited about!
For now, keep your eyes peeled for Warseid news around the globe...
- "Where Fate Lies Unbound" approaching!
- 28th June, 2012
The release of "Where Fate Lies Unbound" is appro- aching. On July 14th at the Regent Street Retreat in Madison, WI we will officially release the EP to the world with support from Winterhymn, Lords of the Trident, Order of the Jackal, and Arbor, who will also release their debut that weekend.
From May 18th to the 24th, we recorded at Old Dark House recording studio near Monroe, WI with our close friend Cory Scheider (ex-Luna Mortis, Epicurean). The sessions went quite smoothly and we're very satisfied with the results so far. For more information, you can follow our brief studio diaries on youtube.
We will also have our new round of merch ready by the release date. We are working with a couple of wonderful artists with great talent and vision, and we are very excited to combine our work with theirs. Keep your eyes peeled for a great new wave of Warseid!
- Andre Cailliet joins Warseid!
- 29th March, 2012
It has been a while since our last update! We apologize for our absence (school, work and other pesky things keep us quite busy), but as of now we have many exciting things to announce!
First and foremost, we have inducted a sixth member into Warseid: rhythm guitarist extraordinaire, Andre Cailliet! As the youngest member of Warseid, Andre proved his prowess on our winter tour with Casket Robbery and Atreus, and we are quite proud to welcome him into the band as a permanent member. It is advised that you check out another of Andre’s projects: Tama.
Secondly, the production of our upcoming concept EP, entitled, “Where Fate Lies Unbound”, is set to continue in mid-May. The drums have been completed, but Brandon, Joe, and Logan are away at school, and it is impossible to continue production until they have returned. It is our promise to you all that it will be available to you sometime this summer!
Finally, we are in need of album artwork and and new T-Shirt designs! Our idea for the artwork is simple: we too are artists and understand that the best work is done with the fewest restrictions. So, we will simply provide artists with the synopsis for “Where Fate Lies Unbound” and whatever this inspires in the artist is what the artist makes. If you are interested in working on artwork for Warseid, send us an email!
