Warrior

Fighting For The Earth, the 1985 debut album by this LA band, is regarded in some circles as a minor classic, the sort of album that falls just short of major success but garners critical and fan appreciation. Decidedly more hard rock than metal, it's nevertheless a worthy find for those into anthemic hard rock. Formed in 1983 by guitarist Joe Floyd and vocalist Perry McCarty, Warrior didn't survive long after the album's release and disbanded, with Floyd moving into the production role for some time. After almost a decade, Floyd re-united with McCarty and, armed with a new lineup, released Ancient Future, which compared to the debut hardly misses a beat, very much retaining the Warrior spirit and style. A third album, The Code Of Life, with well-known vocalist Rob Rock at the mic, was released three years later, and in 2004 another interesting vocal choice, Krokus' Marc Storace, was drafted for the band's fourth album, The Wars Of Gods And Men. Since then there have been no new recordings, but the band continues to play live and (armed with still another new vocalist) may yet record again.
