DISCHARGE - New World Order


Some of the bands send in a long promos as an Obscene Extreme band info. This band get along with just a simple statement in the form of DISCHARGE => wikipedia. The fathers of d-beat, one of the fathers of punk with a political message, a band the whole crust / punk world acknowledges and tries to imitate. 

Formed in 1977 and still in excellent form! And what is more even sharper and more uncompromising with a new singer! Ladies and gentlemen, let us welcome the veterans of DISCHARGE from England at Obscene Extreme Festival 2017!!!    


Discharge are a British hardcore punk band formed in 1977 by Terence "Tezz" Roberts and Royston "Rainy" Wainwright. While the band had substantial line-up changes over its history, the classic line-up from the early 1980s featured bassist Wainwright, drummer Gary Maloney, Anthony "Bones" Roberts playing guitar, and vocalist Kelvin "Cal" Morris (a.k.a. "Cal Voice"). 

The band is characterized by a minimalistic approach of music and lyrics. Heavy, distorted, and grinding guitar-driven sound and raw, shouted vocals similar to a political speech, with lyrics on anarchist and pacifist themes, over intense drone-like rhythms. AllMusic calls the band's sound a "high-speed noise overload" characterized by "ferocious noise blasts" The band's 1982 debut album, Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing, went to number two on the UK Indie Charts and number 40 in the UK Album Chart. In the early 1980s, numerous singles and EPs placed in the top 10 of the UK Indie Charts, including the 1981 EP Why? (#1) 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. "Discharge's influence on heavy metal is incalculable and metal superstars such as Metallica, Anthrax and Sepultura have covered Discharge's songs in tribute." The musical genre of d-beat is named after Discharge and their distinctive drumbeat.
