DISCHARGE are a British hardcore punk band formed in 1977. The band is characterized by a minimalistic approach to music and lyrics. A heavy, distorted and grinding guitar-driven sound and raw, shouted vocals similar to a political speech, with lyrics on anarchistic and pacifistic themes.
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 in the UK Indie Charts and number 40 in the UK Album Charts. In the early 1980s, numerous DISCHARGE singles and EPs landed in the top 10 of the UK Indie Charts, including the 1981 EP »Why?« 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. The musical genre of d-beat is named after DISCHARGE and their distinctive drumbeat.
2015, DISCHARGE announced their signing with Nuclear Blast. After the release of the »New World Order« EP, the time has now come to unleash their new studio album, their label debut, on an unsuspecting world: It's titled »End Of Days« and was released in April 2016.
