Biography

WARNING SF is american thrash metal band, formed in San Francisco in the year 1982.

WARNING of the 80s recordings include again veterans Jon Torres and Brian Poole, along with vocalist Rob The Hammer Halverson (famous in the 80s for tossing his microphone stand into the audience), bassist Terry Hamilton, and drummer Tany Fillari.

WARNING shared the stage with bands such as Metallica, Megadeth, Exodus, Blind Illusion, Anvil Chorus, Heathen, Mordred, Vicious Rumors and more. Playing in such famous clubs as The Old Waldorf, Mabuhay Gardens (better known as The Mab), The Stone, and the Rock On Broadway, in San Francisco.

in the year 2000, WARNING was contacted by a record collector who was interested in putting the bands material out on vinyl for collectors of that old metal sound. After several conversations, original member Jon Torres decided to re-record 7 of the old songs, and along with another original member, Brian Poole reformed the band, recruiting Bay Area musicians Aaron Jellum, Will Carroll (Drums), and Torre Carstensen on vocals to re-record the old songs that are in the true style of the early 80s metal movement with that Bay Area signature.

After almost 3 years of working diligently, it all came together. After the recording of the old tracks the band realized that it had become more than just a re-release of some old songs they had written (between 1979 1985). When the recordings where finished in 2002 and people began to hear the material a buzz was created around the world that eventually reached the labels. Several labels came forward with offers that were placed on the table and the band ultimately made a 3 album deal with the historical label of Mausoleum Records out of Belgium.
