WARFARE picture
In 1984 the singer-drummer Paul Evo, the guitarist Gunner and the bassist Falken decided to start a project called WARFARE .

The sound of the group is often compared with a mix of Motörhead, Tank, and particularly Venom, but in a more punk way.

Signed by Neat Records, in the same year they produced their debut Pure filth, produced by Algy Ward of Tank with the presence of Mantas from Venom as guitarist on the track "Rose petals fall from her face".

After the release of the EP Total death, in 1985 they produced one of their famous releases: Metal anarchy, produced by Lemmy and featuring guitars by Wurzel of Motörhead.

After this album, bassist Falken was replaced by Zlaughter, for the new album, Mayhem, Fuckin' Mayhem in 1986, with Cronos from Venom as producer.

In 1988 the band released A Conflict of Hatred, which introduced Lazer as keyboard player,

WARFARE Pure Filth

Album · 1984 · NWoBHM
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Certif1ed
Wailing siren lead guitars and woom-pah doom-pah bass and drum entry followed by gravel-voiced declamations - how else to begin a Warfare album?

Follow up this very effective warning with an explosion and a track called Total Armageddon, and this is surely what the world was waiting for in metal, right?

Hmm. Not quite.

Total Armageddon has a thrashy guitar, but comes across as a kind of cheap Venom copy - the attitude of the debut Noise Filth and Fury demo just isn't there. The lyrics are rapped out in robotic dum-de-dum-de-dum-de-dum style, completely lacking conviction, the riffs are mechanical, and the overall sound seems less moshy than mushy to me. I'm not convinced by the change of gear into an Iron Maiden style gallop for the wailing Slayer-esque solo either - but I guess this, like most of Venom's material, would have carried more weight in the live domain.

Noise, Filth and Fury starts a bit more convincingly. This time it's like Cronos "singing" with Tank - but the song itself is more anthemic and convincing despite, or maybe because of its completely repetitive nature. This latter isn't a criticism, because it's very conducive to a good headbang.

Things really improve from here with the headlong manic energy of Let The Show Go On. This time, the Venom similarities really don't matter, in this madly thrashing concoction - I'm just glad I'm not driving as I write... The solo really takes off, similiarly to Kirk's in "Whiplash", which this song reminds me of just a bit. By the last chants of the chorus, I'm joining in here with mad excitement. Wooooaarrrghhh!!!!!

Breakout is another slightly cheesey thrasher replete with boom-pish drum beat and some quite inventive riffing - fine stuff!

Some noise follows - always good - to lead into Collision/Rabid Metal - is this an attempt to create a new genre? Wonder why Rabid Metal never caught on... I think the title sets expectations that the tune doesn't really live up to - it's not bad, but nowhere near as thrashy or anthemic as the previous two.

Dance of the Dead seems to herald a time for something a bit more experimental, with what sounds like anvils being beaten, and an appropriate atmosphere is set for such a Dance. This is punctilliously broken down, and we anticipate the thrashing when it kicks in - yup, this is the stuff! The tear down/kick in structuring really works for this piece and makes up for its lack of anthemic catchiness. A really nice bit of progressive metal writing.

The Limit appears to have been reached by the next track, which is a bit of a plodder and not very interesing to me until the guitar solo, at which point it shifts up a couple of gears.

The LP is rounded off by the mysteriously entitled Rose Pedals Fall, which is a thrashing slab of pure noise imbibed with wild and reckless attitude. We like.



The Venom comparisons are unavoidable, and although it's a pity in some ways to hear a clone, there's a fair amount of entertainment to be had in this LP. 0 points for originality, but just the ticket for cheering up a rainy day.

The influences of Tank and Venom are very strong on this debut from Warfare, unsurprising given Venom's Mantas played guitar on the opener "Burn The King's Road" - a real riotous affair as you might imagine, and Algy Ward from Tank had a hand behind the production desk.

The aggression with which the music is delivered should carry a warning - you might seriously end up believing that burning down the King's Road is a really good idea.

But then it goes up a notch.

"New Age of Total Warfare" is out and out hardcore thrasherama whith a liberal spattering of UK Subs, Damned and Motorhead thrown in, and, for 1984, a hard-moshing mayhemic monster. Some give the date of release as 1982, in which case, this is utterly astonishing - but it's still awesome stuff for 1984!

The EP closes with the title track, another monster, but this time one which stomps like those slower sections in Sacred Reich's early albums. This is real fists in the air, hair sweeping the floor stuff.

The music overall is a bit like Venom would have been if they'd actually learned to play and stayed away from all that Satanic nonsense.

Awesome debut and a real credit to the Neat Records stable (after Raven, of course!).
