Post the sourness of lawsuits and miscellaneous, guitarist Nick Hipa, Phil Sgrosso, drummer Jordan Mancino and bass/backing vocalist Josh Gilbert teamed up in late 2013-early 2014 with Oh, Sleeper’s Shane Bay and began working on the debut self-titled project Wovenwar. Wovenwar’s self-titled is definitely metal-core, it’s not a perfect album but it is a very well made album. Having said all this, their dedication to this album is very evident, and I personally feel that although there is a lot of co-relation to the past project, Wovenwar is very different in many ways, and I would urge fellow metal-heads to give them a listen without trying to tie them up to old ghosts as it would simple not be fair to the musicians who have worked so hard to bring us quality music and hands down some very good, and meaningful lyrical content. Wovenwar’s self-titled debut may not yet be as commercially successful as its predecessor and this record may not stick on the charts too long, but they are a long way ahead of their predecessor and must it be understood, they are here to stay.
