DISCARD: Death from Above: 7” EP

A Czech repress of the 1990 EP from a band featuring members of Mob 47 and Protes Bengt. As the band name implies, Discharge is a heavy influence here, but like its sibling bands—not to mention the bulk of Scandinavian hardcore—that band’s heavy shadow is cast more on the verse/chorus formatting than the so-called d-beat, resulting in a sound less aping, more zippy and caustic in delivery, and one of the better releases in the genre. This repress comes in a nice screened cover, to boot.
