DISGUST: The Horror of It All…: CD

Here is a band I haven’t heard of in a long time. Their first release and only release that I have is Brutality of War CD that I think came out in 1993. It was and still is a great release! Forward in time, my brother hands me a copy to trade me. If you have met my brother (Katz) before, he is like the punk encyclopedia. I get the 411 from my brother about what’s been going on with the band. He gives me the titles of all their release, format, label and order of releases. Well, the band has gone through some line-up changes too. The only remaining member is the bass player from the original release that I own, but the formula is the same. If you notice the “dis” prefix, you know nine times out of ten that it’s going to be Discharge (the band) influenced. These guys are one of the elite performers of this genre. This disc shows that they continue the legacy. From the opening instrumental title track and all the way through, you are body slammed to the floor from the blaring energy of the music: three bottom-heavy chords of crusty, metal rage. Lyrics of war and injustices that take place on this planet keep the theme in a haiku-like style. If heavy is what you are looking for, buy and spin.
