Biography

Warrior Soul is an American hard rock band formed by lead singer Kory Clarke, guitarist Cliff St. Croix , later replaced by John Ricco, later replaced by Alex, a Scotsman living in New York City (aka X-Factor) (aka Gene), and guitarist Chris Moffett. Bassist Robert Pauls later replaced by Pete McClanahan, drummer Sam Manelli later replaced by Mark Archebald (ex Overkill and Warlock ) replaced by Paul Ferguson later replaced by Mark Evans and then Scott Duboys (ex Nuclear Assault, Cities, and Cycle Sluts from Hell). They were signed to Geffen Records from 1989 to 1994.

The band hit the scene in New York City in 1987. Coming of age during the presidency of the first George Bush, many of its songs were politically based, from the prescient “In Conclusion” to the call to arms, “Children of the Winter.”

The term “Acid Punk” was coined by Clarke to explain the hard driving trippy sound that was Warrior Soul, particularly the Space Age Playboys album, mixed by Ben Gross. The style once again predicted what was going to break on the American and International rock music scene with the success of Green Day and The Offspring.

The critical acclaim that accompanied the band translated to record sales in Europe but there was not enough push or touring to break in the USA. Despite recognition by peers, including Lars Ulrich from Metallica, who had been quoted as saying Space Age Playboys was his favorite album, Warrior Soul disbanded in 1995.
