The triumphant return of the original Ragga-Metal dons... DUB WAR! "Westgate Under Fire" is the band's first new album of new material in over 26 years after originally signing to Earache Records in the mid 90s. Featuring 13 tracks of politically charged hip-hop infused punk metal, Dub War is spearheaded by frontman Benji Webbe, who also fronts the hugely successful metal band SKINDRED. Benji is widely renowned as Lire la suite [...] one of the best live front men in metal and has won multiple awards.

"'Westgate Under Fire" builds upon the groundbreaking sound that Dub War are known and loved for. Working its way through ragga-punk (see the punk rock cover of the Max Romeo and the Upsetters' classic "War Inna Babylon", which features the legendary Ranking Roger of The Beat in his last ever recording before his sad passing in 2019), sinister metal with exotic beats ("Coffin Lid"), and hip-hop infused metal ("Vibes In The Place"). "We had no need to wander far from our original sound", affirms Benji. The album also packs a punch with its lyricism, as in the critical messages enfolded in the likes of "Blackkk Man".
