Warlord U.K. - _Maximum Carnage_
(Nuclear Blast, 1996)
by: Adrian Bromley (4 out of 10)
The thing that bugs me about this band is the fact that the blending of old school thrash and death-ish vocals and music styles seem to clash, making the music on _Maximum Carnage_ seem a little too loose and scattered rather than a solid sludge of noise. There is no real emotion, no direction and most of all, hardly any intensity found on _Maximum Carnage_. Don't get me wrong, the band (comprised of two Benediction members: Dave Ingram and Neil Hutton) can and does shred some heavy shit like the title track and "Race War", and they do an outstanding cover of Slayer's "Raining Blood". But somewhere between growls and the 'dat-a-dat' of the drums and the guitar riffs we lose interest real fast - at least I did. Warlord U.K. deliver a mediocre blend of music and that's about it.
