War of Ages’ convictions are as deeply rooted in strength through spirit as their music is based in intensely heavy but melodic and catchy metal and hardcore.
“Without pain, there could be no compassion. And without hurt, how would we learn to heal?” asks singer Leroy Hamp, his empathy with the hurting youth of the world clear. “These are the moments when men and women rise up and warriors are born.” Hamp and his brother, drummer Alex, certainly know about rising from pain. In their life experience, they have dealt with kidnapping, abuse both physical and mental, and the violence that surrounded their criminal father and his backward beliefs.
War Of Ages is as much ministry as heavy music and that spirit shines through their songs.
