DISCHARGE / OFF WITH THEIR HEADS
HARDCORE/PUNK-ROCK. The first US pressing (originally pressed in the U.K. by Drunken Sailor Records) of this slab. DISCHARGE cuts "legacy left behind", a song that embraces their classic material as much as it updates it. With Rat Martin on vocals and founding member Tony Roberts on guitar, the band thrashes through an indictment of poor decisions made by political leaders. Although the song is fashioned in classic d-beat thrash the band cleans up its instrumentation. They keep their wall of sound energetic and crushing. On the flipside, OFF WITH THEIR HEADS contribute a song that is as unusual in its construction as the band's lineup, but fits perfectly well alongside their U.K. companion's smashing. In contrast "never run" is supported by a classic-sounding chorus, the song takes a familiar punk structure and makes it feel more like a timeless composition than a formula.
