Excellent mid-90s Hardcore
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Seeing as how nobody else bothered to review this CD, I might as well give my opinion. As one would expect from their name, these guys are part of the whole DISCHARGE-influenced crop of bands that sprung up throughout the 90s, and their song themes(war) and structures(grinding guitars, VERY simple and repetative chord changes) only further display their main influence. BUT, these guys were a cut above all of the other DIS- band wannabes(DISBEER, DISGUST, etc.) simply because of the sheer power of their songs. The singer here shouts like his heads about to explode and the guitars are front and center and loud as all hell. This CD is the the last album of DISFEARs hardcore line-up. Their earlier albums - Soulscars & A Brutal Sight Of War are also excellent HC releases and should be picked up by any Hardcore fan out there(too bad Amazon doesn't sell them). WARNING - after this album their singer/shouter left and was replaced by the guy from the metal band AT THE GATES. Now I happen to like At The Gates and a lot of the EARACHE variety of metal but, as you would expect if you are familiar with the screamy metal type of vocals from ATG, this was a major change for disfear - they've definitely moved into a more speed/thrash metal direction. Their post-Everyday Slaughter songs even have become less political and more fantasy devil type of [stuff]..., so hardcore fans beware."
