DISCHARGE
































"End of days"
Year:  2016
Country:  UK
City:  London
Label:  Nuclear Blast
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  15
Time:  37 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk        Hardcore



















With a brand new vocalist Jeff "JJ" Janiak (from Broken Bones) revitalising their creativity, and Tezz Roberts back in the fold on second guitar to beef out their sound like never before, the current line-up, completed by Bones, Rainy and drummer Dave Caution, have signed to Nuclear Blast Records, to unleash their new single "New World Order", and the aptly-titled album "End of days" avaible on CD, LP and cassette format. Here we have again its typical "d-beat" style like its three first albums, but perhaps this time the whole is more elaborated in several senses: composition, sound, speed and also the voice of JJ, which sound more raw, crude and agressive. The producer got also a better quality sound and songs are truly well written. Longtime ago waiting a good DISCHARGE album, but it seem finally this one is more than satisfactory. Cover, back and general artwork are not designed by german artist John Heartfield (like first albums) but by own Jeff Janiak (now DISCHARGE singer, and also in Broken Bones, Dead Heros, Tread On Me and Wasted Life). Excellent work

"Shooting up the world"
Year:  1993
Country:  UK
City:  Stoke-on-Trent
Label:  Clay
Format:  CD
Tracks:  12
Time:  32 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:          Avantgarde  Metal

















Great, brilliant and excellent DISCHARGE album which dissolved shortly before the second time. Not just Punk. Not just Hardcore. But musically has superior quality in many ways. We could describe it as a disc of Metal in the broad sense of the word, but with a great deal of experimentation, fusion, broken rhythms (drums and bass guitar) and modern or avantgarde style. I know any band that sounds like "Shooting up the world" and not even the DISCHARGE themselves have become just make an album. It was released at the wrong time and nobody paid attention in 1993 what a pitty. The album was quite forgotten, abandoned in a corner like a broken toy, but nowadays it can be probably considered as one of the best DISCHARGE albums. Highly recommended. 










One wouldn't go so far as calling it a full-scale rehabilitation, but with 93's "shootin' up the world", humbled punk heroes Discharge finally recorded a new album that they needn't be ashamed of -  even if the contents still had more characteristics of some kind of avantgarde or heavy metal than classicpunk. Quite possibly of greater concern than their fans' expectations, however, was the fact that no musical style was in more dire straits during the mid 90s than heavy metal, thus guaranteeing precious little attention for this, Discharge's attempted comeback. In any case, for all of their metallic hallmarks, "shootin' up the world" standouts such as the title track, "Leaders deceivers" and "Never come to care" signified some experiments with new sounds and a-rhythmic drums, AC/DC vocals, and visceral execution. Also, with the exception of six-minute opener "Manson child," all songs rediscovered the brutal efficacy of sub-three-minute running times - yet another early omen for the impending re-formation of Discharge's "classic" lineup, and frequent ensuing tours through which they would finally recollect most of the spirit that inspired them at the start, and hundreds of bands thereafter.

"Massacre divine"
Year:  1991
Country:  UK
City:  Stoke-on-Trent
Label:  Clay
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  13
Time:  33
Genre:  rock
Style:          Avantgarde  Metal




















At first opening a package from the mail to see this release amongst the ranks, I was a bit skeptical of what awaited me. With a name like "Massacre divine" and a logo, artwork and aesthetics commonly associated with heavy-metal, I began to wonder if this 1991 CD was perhaps sent to the wrong address. Surprisingly enough to previously held assumptions, "Massacre divine" album is anything but funk-metal, making an effort to sound "crossover" and avant-garde with a lingering metal amalgamation with subtle groove laden hooks and punk ferocity. Vocals sings very similar to AC/DC Brian Johnson vocalist, which I think is quite difficult but here it sound great. The whole of album keep some kind of "funky" rhythms, percussions and drums, mixed with powerful metal guitars. Clean sound and well produced "Massacre divine" passed almost unnoticed in 1991, but I think nowadays quite people recognized this creative effort. Perhaps the band had to must signed the album not as a "Discharge" but as a another band, a different name. Anyway is more than interesting, this reminds nothing until then, before they started to sign to larger record labels and became more accessible to larger audiences. Very good work in its way

"Grave new world"
Year:  1986
Country:  UK
City:  Stoke-on-Trent
Label:  Clay
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  7
Time:  44 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Glam Metal


















Grave New World is an album by rock band Discharge released in 1986 by Clay Records. It is perhaps the band's most controversial album, as it saw the band turn towards glam / heavy metal, with slower tempos and a heavier, higher-quality sound in the recording. The band broke up shortly after its release.    Discharge's baffling and disheartening fall from grace achieved its shocking and unquestioned nadir with 1986's Grave New World -- an album so far removed from the band's seminal hardcore origins, stylistically and philosophically speaking, that it really might as well have been credited to a different band. Sure, the omens of change and decay had long been in the air, as unending lineup changes had gradually altered the group's chemistry and musical formula, making each single beginning with 1983's "The Price of Silence" sound safer, cleaner, while separating them by ever longer periods of inactivity. And yet, not even 1985's drum machine-powered "Ignorance" single (later to inspire Ministry's "Jesus Built My Hot Rod") could have prepared long-suffering Discharge fans for the band's full-fledged dive into glam-metal territory with Grave New World. Vocalist Cal has since blamed a personal rediscovery of Led Zeppelin for the ill-fated decision to swap his hoarse shouting for a piercing, whiney falsetto, and his bandmates have also cited growing frustrations with the state of punk rock when defending the record's cleaner sound and commercial metal inclinations. But none of these excuses made it sound any better -- not for fans, not for Discharge! What's more, the band soon learned this the hard way, on tour, where they frequently had to contend with irate fans bent on assaulting them on-stage! No surprisingly, Discharge officially broke up few months thereafter. ( *Note : this review is by Eduardo Rivadavia )

Year:  1984
Country:  UK

Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  17
Time:  37 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk         Hardcore

















Actuallyally this is not an official album but rather a compilation or collection. But is the only way to listen to it Discharge songs from 1982 to 1984, which officially just appeared as several singles, EP's, etc. Fortunately here the band is still Discharge, I mean, they play songs from fast punk to d-beat to hardcore.... as always. There are total anthems such as: "protest & survive", "never again", "warning", "The more I see" or "The price of silence" to mention just a few. The golden era of Discharge finished with this album in 1984 and since then the band made several attempts to suggest Metal public.

Carry on Discharge trilogy, this is also a essential album next to "Why" and "Never Again". More songs wich repeat the same schedule again and again... but I love it. That rhythmic section (drums) making the called "d-beat" style plus ultra distorted bass and guitars, and the vocal, Cal, as never before. Highly recommended

Though still best known as seminal "crust-core" pioneers (of the famous d-beat, crust or pre-hystorical grindcore style), DISCHARGE has been playing fast rock for almost 35 years. Whilst past albums were punk or hardcore in the early 80s, the release of "Grave new world" in 1986 showed a very heavy/glam metal sound to DISCHARGE which shocked many fans when released, eventually leading the band to a small hiatus until 1990. The original line-up reunited in 2000 and recorded an eponymous album that revives some of the intensity of their early days, without sacrificing the thrash-metal leanings. Some classify DISCHARGE as the foundation of grindcore, crustcore and powerviolence influence, where many future extreme metal bands consider DISCHARGE their major influence. Such bands like Napalm Death and Sepultura were heavily influenced by DISCHARGE and really came together because of being influenced by them. Also bands like Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Bathory and Impaled Nazarene has mention the hardcore punk era Discharge as one of their main influences. This debut album "Why?" was concived rather as a mini-album with no more than twenty minutes of fast d-beat hardcore music. Later different record label took the work and added more songs until twenty such as: "Receiver Records", "Captain Oi!", "Havoc Records"... and more. Hole Bible. Highly recommended.

Excellent DISCHARGE tribute album... maybe the best. Currently there are a good number of tribute albums by the legendary british band "Discharge". I do not know the exact number, but many have been recorded. But I am sure that the best tribute they could pay to have "Discharge" in all aspects, this record is 1992. Good sound, good production, good bands ... finally all very correct. We wanted to add here all songs in video (youtube), but we have not found. So we put a compilation of about 10 minutes long. If you like youtube, listen to the album without fail, highly recommended.

This tape being uncovered I owe to my friend Kevin 'O who I gave the only copy to well over twenty years ago.  He was nice enough to save it, and recently sent it back to me.  My guess is that if I would have kept it, it would be lost in a sea of tapes, or given away to someone else.  I wish I still had the Possessed, and A.A. sets from the gig on tape... they are lost in a sea of tapes for sure. The tape is from 1986 at the Farm in SF.  It was the last show Discharge played after touring the U.S.A. on a their sell out LP.   I had no idea that they had put out a bad record, and were touring on it, so me hearing them sounding like this was a complete shock.  I was ready to hear the classic Discharge... I can be heard talking to another dude standing next to me about how they sound worse then Ratt, and wondering if anyone from the Orig lineup is even in the band.  They really were horrible, and within the first song you can hear the crowd chanting fuck you.  Within 10 mins in they give up playing, and for the next 30 mins, random dudes come out on stage to yell at the crowd, and tell them the cops are coming, and that we are closed minded assholes.  Andy Anderson(Attitude Adjustment), and Scotty Verbal Abuse are some of the randoms talking the crowd down.  Seriously a great memory.  The entire farm chanting DRI, DRI, DRI, DRI...In hopes that DRI who had opened would come back out and play.  Turns out that when Discharge came back out to give it another go, DRI walked up with a trash can full of garbage and threw it at the band.  Members of the band were actually crying because of the reaction.  Years later My friend Jim MacNaughton told me he saw them at La'Mar or something in NY, and the same thing happened.  That would have been at the beginning of the tour.  Hard to believe they toured like this. The recording was done on a little walkmen type tape player, but sounds awesome.  There are only a few songs played, most the time of this tape is the great banter by roadies, and SF scene dudes.  Pretty sure nothing else in the world exists like this. Enjoy the download. (*NOTE: this review is from HERE ).

I don´t know the reason but this live concert recorded in New Jersey (USA) in 1983 was officially released as a vinyl LP in 1989 through label "Clay Records". During some years this was the only official live recording of the band and until 1999 there was nothing but this one. The songs are from the two first albums of the band, "Why" and "See nothing..." and the quality is more or less good. Later was also made on CD format by "Clay Records" and "FOAD Records" with changes in the artwork aspect.
