Welcome to Warhead

Warhead is a speed/thrash metal band based out of Phoenix, Ariz. Their songs are written in the vein of the Big Four of Thrash Metal (Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer). They look like they got time-warped into 2013 straight from the 80s, and they sound like it too.

TBOS got the opportunity to interview Warhead and film them as they were rehearsing for their upcoming show. You can also hear their song, “Death Row,” in the video below.

Tomorrow March 15, they will perform at the Rocky Point Cantina in Tempe, Ariz. Other bands on the bill include: Hemoptysis, Scattered GutsExistence AD, and Fail to Reason. The show is all ages and tickets are $5. Doors open at 7 p.m.

Warhead will be touring in May in support of their debut album, “Death Row”. The full-length interview and more concert footage will be posted on TBOS closer to the album’s release date.

Testament, Overkill and 4ARM Live in Tempe, Ariz.

  1. Mere hours before the show began, Testament guitarist Eric Peterson held a meet-and-greet at the Tempe Guitar Center.
  2. Here at the Tempe @guitarcenter waiting for Eric Peterson of @testamentband! http://twitpic.com/c051tr
  3. Peterson signed memorabilia and took pictures with his fans.
  4. Me with Eric Peterson! Time to haul butt to the Marquee now. http://twitpic.com/c05bxd
  5. Metalheads congregated at the Marquee Theater.
  6. Opening band 4ARM played a six-song set that left headbangers’ necks sore.
  7. 4ARM just finished up their set. My neck already hurts. http://twitpic.com/c05w87
  8. Sound check for Overkill. The drums resonate in your chest! THIS is how a thrash band is meant to sound. http://twitpic.com/c05zak
  9. As the crowd waited for Overkill to take the stage, “Walk” and other songs by Pantera were blared over the P.A. system to get the fans pumped.
  10. Overkill played an impressive set to a destructive crowd. The charismatic frontman Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth strutting across the stage.
  11. Overkill just finished their set. INSANE crowd. Just got crushed by 2 crowd surfers.
  12. Bobby Blitz is one hell of a frontman. One of the best I’ve seen.
  13. Headliners Testament thrashed to a 15-song setlist, heavily composed of tracks from their latest album, “Dark Roots of Earth” (2012).
  14. Overall, the event was great but fans were left wanting to hear more classic material from the headliners.
  15. Testament put on a hell of a show, even though I was expecting “Electric Crown”. http://twitpic.com/c079qt
