Biography

There are at least five bands called Warning.

1) Warning was a band formed in Harlow, Essex (England, UK).

The band was formed in 1994 by Patrick Walker and Stuart Springthorpe. They were notable for their downtempo, progressive, melodic, heavy and doom-laden sound; the idiosyncratic and poignant vocals of Patrick Walker; and his introspective, darkly confessional lyrical themes.

The band released two demo tapes, Revelation Looms in February 1996 and Blessed By The Sabbath in March 1997 which led them to gain underground metal press attention and label interest.

Warning’s debut album The Strength To Dream was released in 1999 via The Miskatonic Foundation (owned and run by Richard M. Walker of Solstice). With this album Warning gained a cult status within doom metal circles, but they soon disbanded after their 2001 European tour with Jack Frost. They regrouped in 2004 to write new songs and to perform at The Doom Shall Rise festival (Germany) in 2005, and released a second album Watching From A Distance (also via The Miskatonic Foundation) in 2006 to wide acclaim.

Both albums were re-issued on CD in 2008 by the label Cyclone Empire, The Strength To Dream being re-packaged in new sleeve artwork. Similarly the albums were released by the Metal Supremacy label as gatefold double-vinyl editions limited to 500 copies each, 125 of each pressed on coloured vinyl.

Patrick Walker decided to discontinue the band in January 2009 and continues to write and record music with his new band, 40 Watt Sun.

    The vocalist sounds like he belongs in a Disney musical and the instruments don't get enough of a spotlight to shine because he never shuts the hell up. Other than that, it kinda reminds me of Reverend Bizarre which is, of course never a bad thing!

    I thought that it's an electropop band from Germany.

    doom metal Warning is great...I do think that though it is a good album, "The Strength to Dream" easily gets overshadowed by "Watching From a Distance". The vocals and riffs are much more refined
