WARFARE - The New Age For Total Warfare

Warfare is a band that existed back in the early 80's, and this is a best of consisting on tracks mostly from their first two albums. The band is playing a very speedy Punkish style of music, aggressive, groovy and very catchy. The melodies are simple, sometimes even slightly repetitive, but that's exactly what the band wanted to sound like. The majority of the songs are in your face music, plain and simple. Don't expect virtuoso moments here, or complexity to the songs. To some, this might sound weird, specially fans not familiar with the sound of this era, might find it primitive, raw, or even complete out of talent. But with a more cautious listening, you will hear enough elements that would later be heard on many bands. It was not a coincidence that their first three albums were produced by Lemmy and Cronos of Venom, and had guest appearances of Wurzel, Mantas and Algy Ward. For a new fan, this is a good place to start, if you want to have a crash course of the music of the band. But if you like what you hear, check out their regular releases as well.
