Discharge announced their signing to Nuclear Blast late last year, releasing critically acclaimed studio album ‘End Of Days’ this April to widespread critical acclaim.
“a righteous fire still burns” – MOJO
“End Of Days is the real fucking deal” – Metal Hammer
“apocalyptic but exhilarating” – Record Collector
“End Of Days sees a new chapter unravel in Discharge’s long lasting legacy” – Vive Le Rock
“(End Of Days is) rendered powerfully with a production that simply steamrollers you” – Zero Tolerance
Discharge‘s influence on the metal scene is undisputed. Their 1982 debut album ‘Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing’ is constantly cited as a classic in extreme music while the likes of Metallica, Anthrax, Sepultura and Machine Head have all covered their songs. They are a British hardcore punk band formed in 1977, characterised by a minimalistic approach to music and lyrics. A heavy, distorted and grinding guitar-driven sound and raw, shouted vocals, with lyrics on anarchistic and pacifistic themes.
The band’s 1982 debut album, ‘Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing’, went to number two in the UK Indie Charts and number 40 in the UK Album Charts. In the early 1980s, numerous Discharge singles and EPs landed in the top 10 of the UK Indie Charts, including the 1981 EP ‘Why?’ and the 1982 single ‘State Violence State Control’.
‘Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing’ paved the way for thrash metal, black metal, crust punk, grindcore and various extreme metal subgenres. The musical genre of d-beat is named after Discharge and their distinctive drumbeat.
