wanna know what brutal sounds like?,
This review is from: Society's Victims (Audio CD)
32 tracks on the 1st CD,
26 tracks on the 2nd CD and
22 tracks on the third, and that folks is a whopping 80 tracks for your money.
All the, out of control drumming, frantic bass playing, diabolically insane guitar riffs and heart felt screaming a body could want. And song titles - State violence, state control, Never again, Why? Its no TV sketch, all bona fide classics.
This CD includes all the early singles, pretty much all of the classic 'hear nothing...' album and some assorted live stuff, with and without Cal singing.
Now here is the problem, Cal, and the fact that there really should be no songs that contain his high pitched, robert plant esq vocals on this CD. But this being a compilation there is, and that is where this CD is let down. Massacre divine? Massacre bloody drivel, but thats just my opinion. Although the new live recordings from 2004 with Rats singing do make up for it, kinda. At least Bones is playing guitar!!!! Whoo hoo.
I really like Discharge (cant you tell?) and any band that can spawn a completely new form of music purely by accident needs to be taken seiously. If this hardcore political punk band had not come about folks, there would be no Metallica, no Anthrax, no slayer, no spultura. Infact, no thrash metal full stop, so there. Probably even no limp biscuit... hmm. What i mean is, no crunchy metal riffs, and this band did not even play crunchy riffs.
To the masses this is probably not easy listening, even to some metallica fans! Shame on them. (There are some exploited fans included in there too, but thats another story.) But this should be listened to, by anyone who likes meaningful, uncompromising, socially aware rock. Because this is not punk this is something far more important, this is Discharge.

Spot on review brother remember when I first heard Discharge and was blown away, early stuff still crisp raw brutal and bloody lovely! Random noise it ain't, just well structured stripped down power.
And I fully agre bout the Planty vocals a terrible period for the band! The band now? Well I wouldn't bother but th elegacy will remain forever!
