RELEASE DATE: April 15, 2022
We Are Resolute (W.A.R.) are now ready to bring you their sophomore full length release entitled “Only Human” and it is going to rock your world this year as the band pulled out all the stops to bring this one to you.
Lets rewind a minute first, W.A.R. started by Bryan Carman and John Mokma, they would recruit legendary vocalist Dale Thompson of Bride to lay down vocals on their debut album “Shine The Light”. “Shine The Light” was released in the Summer of 2020 to great reviews and was one of Roxx Records break out releases that year. “Shine The Light” would make many ‘Best of 2020’ lists and were # 24 for 2020 courtesy of Angelic Warlord reviews.
Now Fast Forward to 2022 and we see W.A.R. about to unleash their second offering “Only Human” with a little help from very influential friends. That’s right lets start with the permanent edition of Lydia Carman, daughter of founder Bryan Carman, on keyboards. Also once again we get the exceptional lyrics and vocals from the hardest working man in Christian Metal Dale Thompson of Bride. But wait, there’s more! Recruited to play bass on this album, the one and only Tracy Ferrie (Stryper / Boston), and James Blackburn (Actor / Film Scores). Over on the drums we feature Kenneth Rasmussen making his professional debut on this release, and a special guest appearance from Michael Feighan (Whitecross) on the drums to round it out. If that is not enough for you we have guest vocals from Chaz Bond (BioGenesis) and Benjamin Birdsong (The Birdsongs) and last but certainly not least, Mr. Troy Thompson (Bride) accompanying the band on Cello.
This album is a very smooth transition from “Shine The Light” and highlights some of the bands greatest work to date. Take a listen to the first single and brand new lyric video for the track “You Love Me” which is also a fitting tribute just in time for Good Friday this year, which is exactly when this album deserves to be released.
