The reunited '80s metallers WARLORD, featuring guitarist William J. Tsamis, drummer Mark S. Zonder (i.e. FATES WARNING),and latest addition, vocalist Joacim Cans (i.e. HAMMERFALL),have been confirmed for this year's Wacken Open Air festival, which is scheduled to take place on August 2-3 in Wacken, Germany. Also freshly confirmed for the event are IMMORTAL and DORNENREICH. The full line-up of acts that are presently scheduled to partake in the festivities now looks like this:
CHILDREN OF BODOM
In other WARLORD-related news, the trio are presently ensconced at a New York recording studio working on the group's long-awaited comeback release, which is tentatively due to be issued during the summer. According to Cans, everything sounds great and we have really captured the spirit and sound they had in the 80's. Production wise it will be light years better. Four songs are done vocally and [guitarist] Bill [Tsamis] is working on the guitar parts for the first song. Sounds amazing. The plan for us is to do a couple of shows this summer and Wacken Open Air is the first one to be confirmed.
