THE DISCHARGERS

"There's No Place Like Hell" (Fury '76; 2006)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Channeling the ugly, hard nosed fury of punk rock, The Dischargers pound out 14 tracks of beefed-up Molotov rockers guaranteed to incite a riot on "There's No Place Like Hell."

This quartet has obviously paid close attention to the seminal band Discharge (even going as far as covering two of their tracks) as their brand of seething punk rock is laden with all of the metallic angst and ferocity of the aforementioned. 

Perfect for a quick fix (the disc clocks in at 27-minutes of pure anti-establishment punk) or to complement a day of drinking, looting and pillaging, The Dischargers aptly prove that there's no place like hell indeed, and that if all the music in the netherworld sounds like this, it may not be such a bad place to be after all.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
