Originally released in 1991 War Cry was one of the first purely DISCHARGE influenced bands to span what later become popularly known as D-Beat. Hailing from Halifax, they were part of a new wave of raging UK bands with worshiped “Why” as the finest piece on non-music ever recorded. DISASTER faded into obscurity shortly after releasing their MLP and War Cry became a cult record among raw hardcore fans worldwide counting visionaries as Kawakami from DISCLOSE as one of their biggest fans.
Finally reissued on CD in Japan in 2006 with extra live sets and unreleased songs LVEUM decide to bring this record back to life on its original format. This reissue comes with an extra Flexi Disc including two Discharge cover songs ( “Mania from Conquest” off the V/A Discharged CD and the unreleased “Fight Back” from the War Cry MLP session) as well as “Death Race” from the “A nightmare on Albion Street” compilation LP. It also comes with a 12 pages 11″x11″ booklet containing flyers, pictures, interview and other memorabilia. To top things up Japanese copies will include an extra insert with DISASTER’s history written by Jacky Crust War as well as Japanese translations of the ban lyrics. Also Japanese and mailorder copies also will come with an obi.
