“Imagine a situation where a drummer who loves to apply non-conventional drumming patterns into metal music meets two guitar virtuosos (one of them never uses a pick and owes his extraordinary performance to his fingernail technique), add a singer gifted with perfect pitch and a lethal high-range, top it off with a massive bass player who also happens to be a great producer and you’ve got… Wardrum!”
ROCKSHOTS MUSIC is proud to announce a worldwide and exclusive management deal with WARDRUM as well as per booking their live shows! WARDRUM, after the release of their 4th studio album called Awakening last October via Steel Gallery Records and in Japan via Spiritual Beast, join forces with Rockshots Music for the next upcoming shows supporting their best album to date.
Awakening is considered as one of the best releases of its kind, it is a pure metal album with a technical, but highly melodic sound. The gifted voice of Yannis Papadopoulos has a perfect pitch and a lethal high-range, top notch guitar works is handled by Kosta Vreto and J. Demian supported by a very impressive rhythmic session formed by Strutter (Bass) and Stergios Kourou (Drums).
