Wage War made its official return this weekend.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘High Horse’ is a high-energy composition that exhibits influences of Lamb of God, Slipknot, and even Whitechapel all in one. While those influences are audible, the song still presents a unique, intense identity.
No information about the song’s lyrical theme was provided in the press release announcing the premiere of the new song and its video. However, in listening to the song, the theme seems relatively straight forward. It comes across as an indictment of those people who think they are so much better than others. It presents a defiant message directed at those people, letting them know that they will eventually get knocked down.
The band was excited as it talked about its new single in a prepared statement.
“Over the last year, we have been working the hardest we ever have on music we couldn’t be more proud of,” the statement reads. “‘High Horse’ is just the first taste.”
The video for ‘High Horse’ presents its own share of energy. the quick camera shots inside the warehouse setting in which the band is performing its new single heighten the overall listening experience.
