CD Reviews

If only this was the debut album!

"OK, so it took years for Warlord to release a full-length LP. For those keeping count, there was the original EP with seven or so songs, a couple of vinyl extended singles, a Metal Blade demo appearance ("Mrs. Victoria") and a "live" fanclub-released performance video that was anything but live!Never mind all that. Throughout all these releases, bandleaders Bill Tsarmis (aka "Destroyer") and Mark Zonder (aka "Thunder Child", who later went on to Fates Warning) were the only constants. But what constants they were! The comparison one might make is what Ozzy's Randy Rhoads-era might be like if King Diamond wrote the lyrics. This is proto-neoclassical, power metal at is most melodic, soulful finest.Not to be confused with the white-metal band that now bears its name, the original Warlord put out some of the finest, most heartbreaking examples of metal guitarcraft ever committed to vinyl. When one contrasts the level of songwriting and performance ability from Bill & Mark against their seeming inability to tour and manage their careers, all one can do is cry.FIVE STARS."
Simply PERFECT !

"WARLORD are one of the underrated metal bands of all time. I don't know for what reason they stopped playing, however they left a legacy of great memorable songs of which I'll name few. To begin with, WARLORD display a very vivid yet heavy metal. Their riffs are among the heaviest and in my opinion easily comparable to those of Black Sabbath. Just listen to 'Deliver us from evil' and you'll know what I'm talking about. Heavy, mean yet so melodic. That's what WARLORD are all about. If you listen closely you'll hear the bass and find out how good the bass lines (in all the songs) are and how 'wicked' the bassist is. And then there's the drumming which is one of the most solid and best drumming I've ever heard in my whole life. Again check out 'Deliver us from evil'. WARLORD also wrote some great ballads, 'Winter tears, will surely send your heart shivering and fill your eyes with tears (if not then maybe a bit close to that !). I can continue this review forever and talk about all the songs on this cd (maybe you'd like that) but if I do so then you'll loose the sensational feeling of hearing songs that will echo in your ears for a long time so I'll leave all the pleasure to you and I'm telling you, you won't regret buying this cd. I listen to it almost everyday and as a matter of fact I'm playing it right now. So do yourself a favor and GET IT NOW! Thank you."
Totally amazing

""The Best of Warlord" is one of those CDs that few heavy metal fans know about, but every serious one should own. All the original EPs are now out of print, and this album contains the best versions of all the songs they ever recorded, so this is the only Warlord album you need. It's impossible to pick a best song because they are all so good. I've had this for almost a year and it NEVER gets old."
