Discharge: End Of Days
Punk legends save their best ’til the endtimes
Having influenced just about every heavy band on the planet, not to mention spawning an entire genre in d-beat, it goes without saying that Discharge are pretty damn special.
That said, it’s been eight years since their last album, Disensitise, and while it was undoubtedly a fine record, it ironically sounded more like one of the many bands they’ve inspired than the real deal. Make no mistake, End Of Days is the real fucking deal. It doesn’t hurt that new frontman JJ Janiak has a roar that sounds remarkably like original singer Kelvin ‘Cal’ Morris, and this sounds like a band who are leading the pack again rather than playing catch-up.
