WARWOUND "WWIII" LP
WARWOUND "WWIII" LP
Dropdead played with Warwound in the UK in 2019. Absolutely crushing and charging UK HC/Punk. This is not phoned in old guy punk, this is solid as hell and full of punk energy.
150 gram red vinyl with 12x12 2 sided lyric insert.
WARWOUND needs no introduction. Comprising founding members of SACRILEGE, THE VARUKERS, HELLKRUSHER and DECADENCE WITHIN this band dates back to 1982 when d-beat punk was taking shape. Today, almost 40 years later WARWOUND blend what’s best in metal and punk and come up with 15 angry punk songs with a heavy SACRILEGE guitar, solid bass line from one of the best punk bassists around and devastating drum sound all accompanies by Rat’s raw vocals shouting pissed off lyrics on this miserable place called world.
Originally formed in 1982 in Birmingham with Damian Thompson playing the bass and Andy Baker on drums, Warwound was a short-lived yet absolutely raging political powerhouse in the veins of early Broken Bones, Chaos UK, and Discharge. In the fall of 1983, however, both Andy and Damian were enrolled to join the mighty Varukers. Just a year later, Damian left The Varukers to form the legendary Sacrilege.
In 2015, Damian reformed Warwound with a new but equally impressive line-up. The current reincarnation of the band features Varukers’ singer Rat Martin, punk historian and musician Ian Glasper (Flux of Pink Indians, Decadence Within) on bass, and Stevie Wingrove (Hellkrusher) on drums.
Following a handful of EPs and split releases between 2015 and 2019, the long-awaited WarwoundWWIII" LP has finally seen the light of day. This veteran outfit cranks out 15 tracks of raw, angry and intensely political thrash punk. As you might expect, it’s very British sounding and takes the best out of every member’s musical past.
Warwound takes the essence out of thrash metal riffs and angry punk attitude to produce a tight record that meets all expectations. Rat’s vocals on here, in my opinion, are much better than the latest Discharge and disappointing Varukers records. Ian Glasper’s bass lines are on top of the game and the drummer is absolutely fucking precise. This record fucking rips!
