I've been anticipating this album for a long time and even pre-ordered a hand-stamped, signed, and numbered copy which was accompanied by a bottle of the most ridiculously spicy hot sauce I've ever tasted, also produced by the band... & let me tell you... I am very pleased. The Chariot's "Wars and Rumors of Wars" Is chaotic and intense from start to finish. The record opens up with "Teach" which is definitely my favorite track on the album. It is a powerful song overflowing with heavy riffs, powerful screams and one of the most killer breakdowns I've ever heard. As the album progresses, there's not much peace to be found. In fact, at first listen, the whole thing sounds like complete musical nonsense, but at the same time it feels real. This band poured their heart and soul into the recording and production of this record. "Daggers", "Evolve", and "Impress" are a few more that everyone should check out. To answer the question "Should I purchase this album?" My answer to you is YES! If you enjoy hardcore music, breakdowns, hot sauce, headbanging, or all of the above, The Chariot's new album is sure to "Impress". As for the biblical and spiritual content of the album, I'll leave it up to you to decipher all of these lyrics for yourself. But even content aside, each copy of the first pressing (25,000) albums has been hand stamped, (with a rubber album art stamp) signed and numbered by a member of the band. So you're not just buying an album, You're buying a collector's item and a piece of this band's history.
