ANOTHER PERFECT DAY

IN THE ’80S WARFARE WERE ONE OF THE UK’S GNARLIEST PUNK/METAL TRIOS, SPEWING OUT A LOUD, OBNOXIOUS CACOPHONY ON CLASSIC ALBUMS LIKE ‘PURE FILTH’ AND ‘METAL ANARCHY’. SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE, PAUL ‘EVO’ EVANS RAN OUT OF STREAM AND QUIT THE BIZ, BUT NOW HE’S BACK WITH HIS DEBUT SOLO ALBUM ‘WARFARE’ AND IT’S EVERYTHING YOU’D EXPECT FROM A PUNK/METAL LEGEND

EVO

What initially instigated this new Warfare album becoming a reality? When did you decide you wanted to make new music again and do this album?

“Over the years since retiring way back in the early ’90s I have had constant offers of playing in name bands, producing, mastering, offers of many record deals (all of which I declined) and fans asking if I’d consider doing another album, then I had the strangest dream, a dark stormy dream verging into nightmare, and the next day I started writing some lyrics and dug out my old very dusty bass guitar. I then asked my dear friend of 35 years Fred Purser if I could pop over to his studio and plug it into a valve amplifier. Well, I hit the first chord (albeit I was a bit rusty) and started riffing, he said ‘for fuck’s sake, turn it down,’ as I play with a 50 pence coin and I was shaking the pens off the office desk, then the fever just hit me again so I turned it up full – what a glorious filthy fuckin’ noise! High Roller Records had [recently] released some of the Warfare back catalogue, I said I may be interested in writing some new songs and they signed me instantly.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

I can still recall the phone call I had from Earache’s label manager Dan about this incredibly awesome Polish band the label had just signed called Decapitated. The enthusiasm that he conveyed down the phone line was infectious and although I was working for a more mainstream metal/rock mag at the time, and bands like Decapitated were on the periphery of the magazine’s demographic, I was excited to check them out. Sure enough the sheer power, professionalism and technical brilliance that pummelled out of the office speakers was enough to have me (and the office) hooked in a nanosecond. That was, of course, back in 2000 when Decapitated had just released their incredible (and still awesome) ‘Winds Of Creation’. Fast-forward seventeen years and even though Lady Luck has not, in many ways, been on the band’s side, Decapitated have continued to push their own creative boundaries and their new album ‘Anticult’ is testament to this. It’s a pleasure to have them grace Terrorizer’s new cover and we hope you enjoy reading about the album’s creation and everything that’s been going on in their world. Elsewhere, we’ve put all our collective blood, sweat, tears and breakdowns into ensuring we have all bases covered in the extreme world. It’s a volatile time right now, but music continues to bring plenty of pleasure, so indulge in it as much as you can! See you next month! Darren Sadler
