HEAVY DISCIPLINE: Self-titled: 7”

Dec 06, 2019

Living in Pittsburgh, I get to see some of the best hardcore bands in the world form right before my eyes. Heavy Discipline is a supergroup made up of members of Hounds Of Hate, Blood Pressure, Curmudgeon, No Time, and more. With early 1980s hardcore serving as their main influence, this crucial 7” is also informed by the styles to follow, most notably powerviolence. Filled with breakdowns and instantly grabby riffs, this is one of those records that define the concept of an instant classic. To say that Heavy Discipline is worthy of the buzz they’re getting in the underground is a gross understatement. This 7” is definitely a must-have. –Art Ettinger (Painkiller, deathwishinc.com)
