WARRIOR SOUL Camden Underworld, London
16 July 2009

When Guns 'N Roses set the world alight with Appetite For Destruction, record companies were scrambling around to find the next big thing , a band with a new sound, a new dimension.

Geffen Records thought they had hit gold dust yet again when they made Warrior Soul sign on the dotted line. With their political views and apocalyptic outlook Geffen and critics alike thought they had a new band with a new voice and a new vision, but that soon got all clouded over with the onset of grunge and the Soul had been left behind in the last decade, dead century.

It is with those distant memories of witnessing the band headline London's Astoria in 1990 that I too lost interest in the band, only crossing thier path on the odd occasion when I saw them live but spent too much time at the bar to take take any real interest to what was actually going on the stage itself .

Fast forward 19 years and Kory Clarke has assembled a new band with once again a new vision and this time a new generation of fans. Not many bands can bring together so many glamsters, thrashers and mentalists under one roof.

With the opening cries of 'We are the government' singer Kory Clarke had the audience in the palm of his hand. 'Wasteland' soon got the moshers going and from then on this was a high energy performance.

Guitarist John H and bass player Janne Jarvis firmly established and looking comfortable in the band and giving 100% on the likes of 'Love Destruction.' Dedicated to the Swedish police 'Fuck The Pigs' was a nice little ditty for everyone to singalong to.

My faith has once again been restored in Kory and the boys, this was a great delivery, and if you keep at it long enough, then things do come full circle. Warrior Soul's greatest hour is yet to come.
