“I’ve always loved rock, some of the first bands I ever got into were bands.  Including the mind-blowing album »Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing«.” –Robb Flynn (MACHINE HEAD)

’s »Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing« album is still as heavy and brutal as anything out there. There was just a level of brutality on that album that I had never heard before. Without that album, I don’t know what I would have done!” –Scott Ian (ANTHRAX)

“As a rebellious kid frustrated on many things that still frustrate me today regarding this world we live in, I can honestly say 1 band always made me feel alive!  That band were DISCHARGE! Truly one of the UK’s finest band every!” –Roger Miret (AGNOSTIC FRONT)

“DISCHARGE are one of the great iconic bands from the 80’s that still have it! Total respect!” –Mille (KREATOR)

“The HC community has always held DISCHARGE in high regard – I think the fact that they are one of the more “aggressive” punk bands, really resonates in our world and beyond that as well…” –Freddy Cricien (MADBALL)

“Not only for their intensity as a band, they influenced me in every way…from vocals to lyrics to packaging of all their records phenomenal.” –Mark Osegueda (DEATH ANGEL)

DISCHARGE are a British punk band formed in 1977. The band is characterised by a minimalistic approach to music and lyrics. A heavy, distorted and grinding guitar-driven sound and raw, shouted vocals similar to a political speech, with lyrics on anarchistic and pacifistic themes.

AllMusic calls the band’s sound a “high-speed noise overload” characterised by “ferocious noise blasts”. The band’s 1982 debut album, Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing, went to number two in the UK Indie Charts and number 40 in the UK Album Charts. In the early 1980s, numerous DISCHARGE singles and EPs landed in the top 10 of the UK Indie Charts, including the 1981 EP Why? and the 1982 single ‘State Violence State Control’. Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing paved the way for thrash metal, black metal, crust punk, grindcore and various extreme metal subgenres. The musical genre of d-beat is named after DISCHARGE and their distinctive drumbeat.
