DISCHARGE: 1980-85, 4CD CLAMSHELL BOXSET

25th September 2018 0 By John Deaux

Formed back in 1977 Discharge are one of the most important Hardcore bands ever to exist. Without them there would be no Napalm Death (or Grindcore for that matter), Metallica, Anthrax, Sepultura or Thrash metal in general. Discharge are to British Hardcore as The Dead Kennedys and Black Flag are to the US culture. They are THAT important.

This box is an absolute monster and will have you slam dancing to your heart’s content. The 1st disc is the 1981 e.p WHY? which has been extended to 22 tracks (instead of the original 10) and now clocks in at just under 32 minutes. It’s loud, fast and as obnoxious as it gets.  It’s an education into what the music of Hardcore actually is. 

Hear Nothing, Say Nothing, Say Nothing is probably the most important album they ever produced. It happens to also contain the tracks Protest and Survive (which Anthrax covered on Attack Of The Killer B’s) and Free Speech For The Dumb (which Metallica recorded for their Garage Inc album)I cannot stress enough how good this album is. It’s a must have album.

Score 10/10
