WARRIOR - Let Battle Commence (Ltd 250 / Blue) LP
Reissue limited 250 copies on blue vinyl including 4-page booklet with lyrics & unseen photos.
As the late seventies faded away into 1980 and the New Wave of British Heavy Metal began to bloom, scores of demo tapes and 7" singles began to hit the market. One of the first private lp's, and in our opinion of the the most unsung and underrated was Warrior's Let Battle Commence.
Warrior's brand of Wishbone Ash styled twin guitar heroics and killer song arrangement has clearly gone under the radar. The band can easily be talked about in the same breath as their then contemporaries of the time Bleak House, Dark Star, Praying Mantis and Trespass.
Issued in 500 copies in 1980 , an original now has become $300-$400.00. Not to be confused with Warrior from Nottingham and three or for others acts with the same moniker that were making the rounds in early 80's uk circles.
