Warfare









two tribes, 1984
noise, filth & fury, 1984
this machine kills, 1984
pure filth, 1984
total death, 1985
metal anarchy, 1985
mayhem, fuckin' mayhem, 1987
a conflict of hatred, 1988
hammer horror, 1990
deathcharge (live), 1991
decade of decibels, 1993
Here are most Warfare records. Missing: RADIO HELL (split w/Venom and Raven) and a full rip of "deathcharge". "Metal City" does not provide any alternate version of either Venom or Warfare songs so I won't waste bandwith.
Anyone selling "radio hell" or "deathcharge" should get in touch ASAP.
Fun facts: most records done at Impulse by Keith Nichols (like Venom). "Pure Filth" was produced by Algy Ward, who plays guitar on "Hammer Horror". "Metal anarchy" was produced by Lemmy. Cronos plays bass on "Mayhem, fuckin' mayhem" (and sings on the "You're really got me" cover). Mantas plays guitar on "Decade of decibels" and a "conflict of hatred". Evo (main man, drums & vocals) had previously played in several cult bands such as Chaotic Dischord, Angelic Upstarts and the Blood, and many others. And I'm sure we can find more exciting trivia (like: yes, "Two Tribes" is a Franky Goes to Hollywood cover, zer).
Thank you Evo for this amazing collection of 80s thrash metal punk, at the zenith of which "Mayhem, fuckin' mayhem" shines in all its splendid putrefaction. There was Venom, Tank, Bulldozer, Backwater, Sodom, Bathory, Celtic Frost - and WARFARE !!! ZERRRR !!!!
Metal anarchy, hammer horror & decade of decibels : CD rip.
Everything else: vinyl rip.
The "pure filth" rip contains both last songs : UK version with "rose petals fall from her face" (w/Venom) and Canadian version with "noise, filth & fury".
I still do not own a copy of "deathcharge", I found this rip on a torrent. It is pretty bad, with incomplete songs and changing sound levels.

  1. Excellent post, Warfare were a great band up to "Mayhem Fuckin' Mayhem".

    BTW, there were actually 2 versions of "Hammer Horror" : the original 9 track version, and the remixed, re-record 16 track version.

    Having heard both, I can attest to the fact that they suck equally.

  5. Agreed! Powerful, dirty, groovy and very catchy songs - these guys had a gift. I love them as much as 25 years ago, this is totally classic!

  6. Thanks for this, can listen again now without scratching my tasty old vinyl! Did they ever get around to recording 'Wake me Up Before You Go-Go'?

    And if anybody has the Phil Foetus All Nude Review 12" 'Bedrock' available for upload I would be eternally grateful :)
