WARCRY - system under anguish (MCD) Precedent Records #01 1994



Just to complete the Warcry roster: only half a year later they recorded a MCD that was supposed to be on a German label1 but it never happened, so they did it on their own. They also rerecorded two songs from the 7" here and the whole thing sounds a bit better than on the first release - think of melodic mosh like Encounter or the Louisville bands, early Chokehold or even Integrity. They also changed concerning ideology, while the lyrics are quite in the same direction the whole thing seems more moderate and also with a wink, for example the whole band biography has a nonserious undertone2 and the CD label is a beer mat from Munich ("...ein Prost aus M√ľnchen"), which might be a reaction towards the critics of the first release. Today I just realized that Warcry were from the same city like Militant Records; I am an inattentive nerd. I don't know what happened to them later.

The German Label was Lifeforce Records.
Also, Precedent Records was just made up label name Tony Victory paid for the pressing he just did not want to put it on Victory since he did not see the project from the begining
