Discharge has always been a band to be reckoned with since the late `70s, delivering their undisputed wall of of noise that has still yet to be matched by any other band who dares to imitate their sound. The only band to have ever come close to sounding exactly like Discharge was Crucifix, who are also legends in their own right.

Discharge has gotten back into the studio and recorded three new tracks: "The Beginning of the End," "The Blood of the Innocent" and "They Lie, You Die" for an EP with vocalist Rat who also fronts the Varukers. What they captured on tape is the same wall of sound that made them a favorite of both punk fans and metal fans. The band has returned to their roots on this: straightforward d-beat punk with a touch of metal going over a thousand miles an hour. Rat's vocal styling blends perfectly with the bands sound.

This is simply the best material the band has released in years. If this is just a taste of what is to come then I can't wait any longer, as this EP is having me scream for more.

ya know, i love old Discharge with Cal but i'm excited to hear Rat singing for discharge. And if anyone could take Cal's place, its Rat.

For those who are complaining about how short this review is, get a life. I kept it short, because I personally don't understand why a CD/Record review has to be a full blown out 10 pages long in order to describe the music. I like the idea of keeping my reviews short and straight to the point just like the music of Discharge.

I've written thesis statements longer than this review.

its not discharge without cal. and there are a million bands that sound identical to discharge. fuck, they even have an entire genre of punk named after them, D BEAT. check out disclose from japan, their singer just passed away. awesome discharge worship.

i vote for this reviewer to be fired. go back to writing for your high school paper.

Wow. Shit review. Many bands sound a lot fucking more like Discharge than Crucifix did. Like, hmmm, off the top of my head:
Varukers, Warcry, Kegcharge, Disclose...
I refuse to accept the new Discharge. Even if the songwriting is up to old standards, the band is NOTHING without Cal. Plain and simple.

A lot of short reviews today.

And yeah, there are a ton of bands that ape Discharge.

Anonymous (August 31, 2007)

um ya disclose is probably the best discharge infuenced band EVER

If you think CRUCIFIX is the only band to come close to sounding like DISCHARGE, you must be deaf.
