Night Goat I found this while looking for a different Warlord, but ended up pleasantly blown away! I can't stop listening to Satan's Cross! Thanks for putting this Metal gem on bandcamp. Favorite track: satan's cross.

about

Compilation of Mortal Sin and Without Warning demos recorded in 1981 and 1982/1984 respectively. This is HEAVY METAL dude. Here's a review by by Gabriel Lilliehook of GL-productions, Sweden.

Mortal Sin and Warlord Demos Time to step into the time machine to the early 80s with a compilation of 3 NWOBHM inspired bands from the San Diego area that was pretty shortlived. First up is Mortal Sin a band that formed in 1981 and remained as a band for 3 years up to their breakup 1984 and the first 6 tracks is from a demo the band did in 1982 and 1984, this is fine early US heavy metal with influences raging from Angelwitch, Iron Maiden, Saxon and Witchfynde. The next band is Without Warning a band that formed in 1980 that also went under the moniker Warlord lasted for only a year and managed to squeeze out a 2 track demo the same year + a practice session that is also included here from late 80. Without Warning is more heavy doom laden sounding it sounds a bit like the first demo Angelwitch did in 1979 but not as powerful, I also find some influences of Blitzkrieg and early Raven. For all you fans of the British early 80s metal boom here is a perfect compilation to investigate in.

Tracks: Heaven is Waiting, Into the Other World, Nightmare, Demons of Dark, Giving In, Destiny, To Die, To The Depths of Hades, Revelations, Without Warning, Satan's Cross, Messiah, Eternal Dark, The Supermen
