THE WARNING

"Error" (Republic Records; 2022)

Reviewed by Snidermann

I have been a big believer in female bands that rock since I first heard the Runaways when I was like thirteen. The Warning is an all-sister rock band with ages running from 17 to 22. They are from Monterrey, Mexico and this is their fourth release.

Holy shit! These girls know how to rock! And, when you hear music that like found on "Error," you know that music was the reason they were put on earth,

This music plays like a Broadway play or some rock opera. Some of the songs are sung in Spanish which only makes it cooler, in my opinion. I still can't get over the fact that the oldest sister is only twenty-two! "Error" makes it sound like this band has been together for twenty years or more, yet two of the members can't even drink legally in the U.S.!

At the time of this writing, "The Warning" is on tour Halestorm and The Pretty Reckless and, wow, what a fricken show that would be!

With "Error," The Warning has put out music that's simply decades way ahead of their ages. What a treat! Now I’ll have to go check out their first three releases and you know what? I'm more than okay with that!

"Queen of the Murder Scene" (Nada Mas Records; 2018)

Reviewed by Snidermann

I discovered a great band, The Warning, and their recording "Queen of the Murder Scene" It is simply one killer release. This is a three person, all-female band—sisters, in fact—from Mexico and they deliver a rock'n'roll/heavy metal story like gangbusters from the word go.

Thirteen songs and almost an hour of music and, from what I can figure out, simply one of the best rock recordings I have heard in quite some time.

I remember my choir teacher that said that in a three person band, everyone sang, however, I found that is just not the case (Motorhead, Rush, Cream, Triumph, just to name a few) . The person singing for The Warning is putting her heart and soul into each and every song. There's no better word here than wow! Each track is a masterpiece of rock'n'roll. Soft, smooth rock to knee--slapping rockers that is what you want out of a recording like this.

The Warning has been around since 2013 and, when I listen to "Queen of the Murder Scene," well, I just want to listen to the rest of the band's catalog. The Warning has it all: killer musicianship, excellent songwriting and a shit load of attitude that all combines to make this sister band from Monterey, Mexico one of my new fave bands and that makes it all worth the while.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
