Biography

There are at least 7 artists named Warlord:
1) 80s Power Metal
2) 90s Doomcore (sludge?)
3) 90s-00s Chip/Demoscene/Metal musician
4) 70s Doom Metal/Heavy Psych
5) Rock band from UK.
6) Rapper
7) British RAC band

1) Warlord is one of those little known bands who should have earned much more fame. Their first album “Deliver us” was published in the early ’80s (1983) and it was enough, along with “And The Cannons Of Destruction Have Begun” that followed with only few more new songs, to make them a historical metal band of the early US power metal scene. The style is progressive, melodic heavy metal of exceptional inspiration and great musical talent. Standout tracks are “Winter Tears”, “Child of the Damned”, “Black Mass”, and the monumental “Lucifer’s Hammer”. The vocals are very melodic which contrasts with the heavy rythym and guitar riffs. Guitar playing is very solid with technical solos. Songs are well constructed and carry a deep, strong feeling. It is a shame that they never really got the attention that they deserved. Nevertheless, their drummer, Thunder Child, made a great career-he is actually, Mark Zonder of Fates Warning. Metal fans who appreciate epic and early power scene should not miss them!
Recently, in the year 2002, Destroyer (guitarist W.Tsamis) returned with M.Zonder (drums, of course) and J.Cans (vocals) and published Warlord’s “Rising Out From The Ashes”. And the legendary Warlord proved again the dark power of epic metal…

    The Holy Empire isn't perfect but it's still a really excellent continuation of where they left off.

    @jumalannyrkki, hahah, I've waited to hear that kind of comment for many years around here, but so far I've been getting away too easy with my taste. Thank you for the much needed criticism! :D Although I can't wrap my head around the fact that when Heep and Dio sang about dragons and stuff, it was still cool. Then it suddenly wasn't anymore, it was geekish or smth. Many of those bands I've mainly listened to are traditional, they draw very much from stuff like Warlord. What's wrong with that? :D Also, classical is fine, yes? Metal is fine. Classical + metal is not...? Anyways, I kinda like your taste even if you couldn't say the same about mine... :I

    @lionheartattack, one look at your charts is more than enough to ignore your opinion.

    The Holy Empire is an amazing record and let it be known that there is no hyperbole whatsoever when I say that. It is truly majestic, powerful, and quite honestly, beautiful. Between that album and Satan's Life Sentence which came out a week or so ago, I am feeling really spoiled as a metalhead. These are two immaculately crafted records that are arguably as good (or better) than each band's best and most-loved works.

    Holy Empire is the best album that will come out this year. Tsamis's leads and solos are incredible, and the songs are epic beyond belief. Amazing and easily the best the band has done since And the cannons of destruction
