Founded in late 2010 Warcrab hail from the South West of England and were formed through friendships forged during previous local musical projects. Their crushing style and colossal live sound draws on a range influences including Death, Black,Sludge and Doom Metal as well as classic bands such as Black Sabbath.
After minor changes to the line-up during 2011 the band focused on writing material and honing their monstrous sound with a single rule in mind, make it heavy! The end of 2011 saw the recruitment of Kane Nelson on vocals, whose lyrical and vocal style gave the band a new dark intensity which was unveiled in 2012 at their first live show in their home town of Plymouth, instantly establishing them on the local scene.
Without taking a breath Warcrab released their self-titled album at the end of 2012 which was suitably well received. Following this release Warcrab have played a number of successful shows across the UK
The band began 2014 with a string of dates across the UK with London based doomsters Diesel King which gave them great exposure for some of their dynamic and crushing new material. Further new material from their eagerly awaited second release "Ashes of Carnage" was premiered upon its release as the band played to a huge audience on the New Blood stage at Bloodstock 2014 which was quickly followed by a Uk tour with Brazilian death mongers Krow.
" Ashes of Carnage" was released through "When planets collide" and was a limited release.
In 2015 the band signed up with Contagion records and re-released "Ashes of Carnage" which gave the band a larger audience in Europe and beyond.
They continue to support this record by playing live all across the uk sharing the stage with bands such as Vader, Conan, Gurt, Diesel King and most recently Warlord uk on "THE WAR TOUR 2015",
beside all of this the band have found the time to write new material and as of November enter Skyhammer Studios to record their third release "Scars of Eons" with an expected release early 2016!
