WARCRY – until darkness... (7”) Militant Records & Vegan Earth Order #01 1994



Here is another request by a reader: the first release by Vegan Earth Order & Militant Records. Many people say that it is the worst release of the label; might be true, but if you have an affinity for 90ies vegan mosh, you might like it. Warcry sound a bit like a mosh version of Outspoken and were still part of the first wave - those recordings are from 1993.
The band got criticized very much - not for their lyrics (straight edge1 and earth defence) or their support of AIM but for the drawing on the label of the flip side done by Guav (a Syracuse hardcore legend). In a Heartattack review someone stated that it was Eurocentrism but that’s a bit out of the blue. It’s just the old “firestorm” scheme: a straight edge boy with a hooded sweater and x’d fists is pointing a gun at someone’s head - the person has rastas and is smoking. I think it doesn’t need any further remarks it’s just dumb, although the drawing is poorly looking anyway.

...sind die einzigen bei denen Vegan Earth Order in punkto Militant Records mit dabei war, da ja eigentlich weniger Musik-orientiert. Andere Veröffentlichungen fallen mir nun nicht ein...

Vegan Earth Order war der gleiche der die alseits bekannten Vegan Power shirts ala Ecorage gedruckt hat.

Die erste Version ist von dem, oder? Also die mit dem Hardline Logo und Schriftzug auf der Rückseite.

Guav said...

It wasn't a rastafarian, it was just some grunge hippy—so it wasn'r eurocentric, just silly.

Yeah, we didn't have much money to record that record. It should have been recorded as a demo. And people took that drawing to places it should never have gone. I guess at the time we were hoping people still had a sense of humor, but, alas, it was not meant to be. Oh well.
