Dub War were a four piece metal band from Newport, South Wales, UK. Formed in 1993, the band offered an innovative mix of metal, punk, and ragga, inheriting the punk-reggae legacy of The Clash and Bad Brains. Their lyrics were thoughtful and idealistic drawing comparisons with the former, though musically they were closer to the hard rock sound of the latter. Fans consider the band to have been pioneers of a new genre, 'ragga metal'.

They released only two albums via the metal label, Earache Records. They were 1995s Pain and Wrong Side of Beautiful the following year. The Dub War experience was short-lived as the band split in 1999. This separation resulted from disputes with their label. [1] Lead singer Benji Webbe went on to form Skindred.
