I recently picked up a 'S/T' cd from french band Warning which i believe is an LP from about 1982, but issued on cd sometime late 80s.

 

Never heard of em before but this is an awesome disc!

In terms of sound.... 50% britny fox, 20% euro metal, 20% cinderella, 10% Ratt. (but obviously recorded before all these bands existed)

 

Anyone know much about them?

Any more albums? If so, do they sound like this one, or are they more metal?

 

Here's a clips of these guys....

A different singer with their third release. Good find!

  • Warning I, Polydor 1981, CD re-issue by Axe Killer, gold certification in France
  • Warning II, Polydor 1982, CD re-issue by Axe Killer, gold certification in France
  • Metamorphose, Columbia 1984

Good band, although not in my favorite list of french bands! Kudos to them for singing in their native language! Sortilege's " Larmes de heros" aka " Hero's tears" sung in english was a crime against music.

Are their other albums the same sound as this one?

Others say they are power metal, but this album isn't very power metal from what i hear...

In my ears, this albums can sit alongside most other late 80s heavy rock.
