Tyneside’s WARFARE are widely considered to have been the original metal punks. The band was formed by drummer Evo in late 1983. Evo had learned his trade in legendary Oi! Band Major Accident! The material on “Pure Filth: From the Vaults of Rabid Metal” is one part of a three-part series released by High Roller Records and collects early Warfare recordings that have been carefully re-mastered by Patrick W. Engel at his Temple Of Disharmony studio.
