Warning (UK) - Melodic Doom Metal

Excellent, excellent doom metal. Watching From A Distance is probably one of the most emotionally stirring yet crushing albums ever made - not to mention it's pretty damn epic. The lyrics are great, as well.

I'm actually very surprised there's no thread on them already, seeing as there's quite a few people here that know them.

Anyways, enjoy, discuss, and so on and so forth.

Gotta post in this thread, simply for the fact that Watching From A Distance utterly changed my entire perspective on music, and is hands down one of the greatest albums I've ever heard. Found out about these guys just a few months ago, and they opened my eyes to how much raw, unadulterated emotion can actually be put into music. Not to mention that as a lyric lover, these guys absolutely blow me away. Flawless, life-altering album. Can't say enough good things.

Absolutely emotionally draining doom. Watching From a Distance is romantic tragedies incarnate.

Your taste grows more and more admirable each day Broadsword.

there like the slowest doom metal band i've ever heard. Couldn't they just call themselves like Slow Metal? If you want doom metal, go listen to Candlemass \\ ^_^ //

I've heard of this band before, and I was going to check out their album Watching From a Distance. I never actually got around to it though, but I might get around to it this weekend.

I love Warning! They haven't put out a lot of material for a band that's existed for a long time, but Watching From A Distance is pure doom class.

I blindly bought Watching From A Distances after hearing about it in the Doom Thread (Broadsword - we have been trying to keep these excellent bands in that thread so ones like this don't keep getting made and buried ).

And my first impression was "WOW". I never knew so much emotion and atmosphere could be physically contained within an album.

(fuck all these "Emo" kids that seem to be breeding up, they have nothing on Warning in terms of portraying emotion through Music! although I think they are more concerned with what their hair looks like than that anyway ).

amen.

Anyone else's opinions on the first album? The music is to me of much the same standard, but I really wish Pat had his vocal ability when the first record was released... There are so many great lyrics on that album, that get let down by sub-par singing, that is also mixed quite low in comparison to the music

I don't like The Strength To Dream as much as Watching From The Distance
and it's not quite as good musically either imo, on it the music is much closer to the "basic" doom metal style and on Watching From The Distance they got a more distinctive style of their own

And Pat Walker is apparently an actor as well, so that may have something to do with the music.

Ah, gotcha. I don't really ever go to the Doom Thread, I suppose I ought to more. And yeah, as far as portraying emotions in music goes, Warning should be a standard.

Watching From A Distance is the best Doom album I've ever heard, and possibly one of the best albums I've ever heard. It's the perfect album for me, genuine emotion and beautiful atmosphere combined seamlessly. I think what gets me the most about the album though is it's honesty. With many depressive doom albums I get a sort of strained feeling from it, with pretentious lyrics and vocals that strive for anguish but come off somewhat fake (though I love the band, MDB sometimes suffer from this). With Warning, it all felt so real since the first time I heard it. I think I know almost all the albums lyrics off by heart at this point, brilliant stuff.

yeah definitely,.. the difference between the two albums is quite astounding. I'd like the first album more if the singing was better.

To Nosferatu; yeah I noted that too when I first listened to it,.. but somehow the voice just fits.

To Flying Phoenix; that's the reason why I love this band. It's very pure emotion, and he has an amazing way with lyrics as well

I almost completely forgot about these guys. Watching from a Distance is a damn good album; I should probably listen to it in the near future.

But, yeah, you should definitely get Watching From A Distance, it will be well worth your time/money. Just be sure to have a box of tissues handy for all of the bawling you'll be doing.
