Bio: War of Ages is a Christian melodic death metal/metalcore band from Erie, Pennsylvania, formed during the summer of 2002. 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." War Of Ages is as much ministry as heavy music and that spirit shines through their songs. Only years of collaboration and a thick friendship could produce the command and virtuosity held by War of Ages.
