Enter The Arena - which was captured at Philip H. Anselmo's famed Nodferatu's Lair, mixed by Mike Thompson at the Riff Factory and mastered by Lee Russell - features newest WARBEAST recruits, guitarist Drew Shoup and bassist Lyric Ferchaud, and stands among band's most potent, volatile, and unrepentantly powerful offering yet.
The Void Report gushed, "Sounding truly inspired, angry, and at the top of their game, the band succeeds in delivering an album that doesn't sound like a throwback to the glory days of thrash metal, but rather something that sounds current and exhilarating," furthering, "You will instantly forget every other metal album you bought this year." Metal Kaoz hails, "a solid thrash piece with absolutely no weak points," while Metal Wani notes, "Few modern bands can make old school metal with the natural ease WARBEAST can."

The release of WARBEAST's Enter The Arena follows vocalist Bruce Corbitt's recent esophageal cancer diagnosis. A treatable though rarely curable disease, Corbitt faces the likelihood that he will never be able to sing again. The singer, who recently completed an intensive schedule of radiation treatments, played his final show in May at the Rail Club in Fort Worth. Last month the band played a release show for Enter The Arena with vocals handled by Philip H. Anselmo, Edwin Neal (Texas Chain Saw Massacre), and Wayne Abney (Hammer Witch) with Corbitt performing a few refrains.
