La Quinta Esencia ("The Fifth Essence") is the fifth studio album by the power metal band WarCry, released on December 18, 2006 (see 2006 in music and 2006 in heavy metal music), and distributed through Avispa Music. Front man, and lead vocals Víctor García said that this album is a mixture of all the works from their four previous albums.

La Quinta Esencia was the last work to feature drummer Alberto Ardines and guitarist Fernando Mon, who left on August 29, 2007, the reasons remained between the members, as accorded from both sides.[2] They were replaced by Rafael Yugueros, an Asturian heavy metal drummer who had worked for the band on Demon 97,[3] and José Rubio[4] better known as the former guitarist of the band Trilogy.

Later, on February 18, 2008 keyboardist Manuel Ramil left the band due to the distance between his home in Galicia to the rest of the members in Asturias, it was also said that Manuel could only attend to the new album's recording in the studio just a 10% compared to the rest of the members.[5] All three members, along with vocalist Toni Amboaje reunited to form an alternative/power metal band, called Sauze.
