War of Attrition is a five-piece metal outfit based in Limerick, Ireland, and formed just as the coronavirus pandemic hit the world. The guys are are insanely passionate about music, and work hard to translate that passion into something they can be proud to share.
Our Lead Axeman is Ocean, a shredder to the core with likes and influences from Amon Amarth to ZZ Top.A speed shredder at heart, Ocean is still a consciously technical composer and player.
"If it ain’t awesome, do it again."
Our Vocalist, Nathan, strikes a perfect balance between Death Metal growling and heavy rock depending on the needs of the lyric.Nathan likes to put all he’s got into a gig and tends to run hot because of that. When that happens… the shirt’s coming off!
“I’m too sexy for my t-shirt!“
Our Drummer is Shapes, who seems to defy the laws of physics in terms of energy output. Remember that guy, Animal, from The Muppets? Yeah… Animal wishes he could play drums with the same energy as Shapes and still keep perfect time!
“I like to hit stuff with sticks!“
Diarmuid manages to blend the smooth fluidity of blues licks with the speed and aggression of death metal shredding. He is so in tune – 🙂 – with guitar craft that we’ve seen him make a shite guitar sound good!
(after Take #1 in studio) “That ok?” (…and it feckin’ was too!)
Keith broke a low E string in the middle of our first live gig… on a bass!… and played on! Keith provides a solid gutsy foundation that blends with the drums to give our sound a great low end drive!
