YomaBarr Gods (or demons, according to your taste) bless the good people of Transcending Obscurity for unearthing this gem. Folks, the thing is more than 20 years old and it's good as new.
What am I talking about. It's better.

lust4metal good death metal. will appeal to fans of bolt thrower. Favorite track: Alien Dictator.
srasher thumbnail
srasher It's one of the most overlooked classic Death Metal albums in music history. Some Bolt Thrower, some Benediction, lots of Thrashy elements, absolutely great vocals, a fantastic raw sound and neckbreaking killer riffs in basically EVERY SINGLE SONG. Favorite track: Alien Dictator.

Moshé Sarrazin Stop your mourning about the old good time! It's come back, NOW, HERE, with this magnum opus! The sound is like a swampish memory... The music is like a razor melody... The vocals are a testimony of agony and eternal warfare! Crush or be crushed! This is it! Take this old evil, put it in your soul and you will never be alone... Death and you for eternity! \m/

On the 20th anniversary of 'Maximum Carnage', originally released on Nuclear Blast in 1996, we announce a special reissue with two bonus tracks and a fresh layout along with exclusive liner notes from founder Mark White. Warlord UK have always been unheralded and yet they are one of the pillars of the UK death metal scene along with others like Bolt Thrower, Benediction and Cancer. Overshadowed probably due to pack of promotion and the period when death metal was saturated, it is our honour to unearth this album from the crypts of oblivion and present it in its original quality with packaging enhancements - each CD comes with a unique hand-numbered certificate of authenticity and a large sticker of the album artwork. Limited to 500 copies worldwide, these won't ever be pressed again. Experience UK death metal at its peak with probably the best album Warlord UK have recorded.
