Third World War
Take cover. It's the Third World War. Flying in the face of the late sixties/early seventies peace and love movement with the chosen band handle and a song titled "Preaching Violence". There were so many great albums released in 1971, Third World War became one of the many largely forgotten bands. Sometimes credited as British proto-punk and at other times called heavy metal, Third World War were clearly a band that didn't fit in. The lyrics often represent the politics of the working class, the vocals are gruff and the guitar sound is often heavy but whether it could be metal or punk is up for debate.
