Holy Bible for all those lovers of hardcore, powerviolence, crust punk, grindcore and other forms of extreme music such as: death metal, thrash metal, speed metal, etc. "Why" was concived as a mini-album but later was issued with different song list, including more bonus tracks, live tracks, etc. "Why" was recorded late 1980 and sound as a true H-bomb in your ears. Even own Discharge members doesn't like much it to be excessively noisy, speed and extreme.

actually this is not an official album and the band has never recognize it as official album. But the true this is the only one form to listen to Discharge from 1982 to 1984, because these seventeen songs were issued on different formats (EP's, singles, promos) but never as an album. After "never again" Discharge started their fatale adventure into the mainstream heavy metal industry with the controversial album "grave new world", wich actually sound closer to melodic glam metal.

This record is the most Punk Rock thing DISCHARGE ever did... period. It's universally hated by fans who expected the band to record the same crusty hardcore album over and over and over. Apparently growth and change aren't things embraced by your typical Punk (not surprising when most of the complainants prolly look like they like they're still living in UK82). Taking risks, following your heart - not the masses, breaking the mold, pushing the limits, testing the status quo, etc. ... these are the true characteristics of Punk, and these define the band that recorded "GNW". Unfortunately, the band became so reviled for their new "un-punk" sound that while on tour in the US they were pushed past their breaking point, and infighting led to their eventual break up. I remember reading a letter from the guitarist (I think) in MRR, apologizing for Cal's vocals and his unwillingness to revert back to the hardcore style that he was so well known for. What a cunt! Why should he bow to audience pressure and let the morons at their shows dictate what's best for him? Don't get me wrong, I love old DISCHARGE, but I don't wanna hear "It's No T.V. Sketch" over and over either. And forget their history... take this album for what it is: a solid, well produced, hard rock/metal album with thoughtful lyrics and great performances (especially in the vocal department). As soon as I hear someone complaining about this record, I know unequivocally that they have no idea what Punk Rock is, or what the fuck they're talking about (*Review by Horrible Noise ).

Excellent album. Six hallowed words come affixed to British hardcore punk: "Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing." Two others would be "never again." If you don't know Discharge, shame on you. The very definition of hardcore music ought to come with Discharge stuffed inside the same sentence. As one of the fastest, loudest, most ireful pack of trash radicals that ever dared to throw down against Her Majesty and oligarchic governments at-large, Discharge has always worn their grit and grime (and the shadowing skewered dove from John Heartfield's photograph “The Meaning of Geneva, Where Capital Lives, There Can Be No Peace”) like street badges. Despite a brief hiatus, Discharge has surreptitiously hung about the scene, dropping a split release with OFF WITH THEIR HEADS in 2012, and the "Propaganda Feeds" EP a year prior. This year, Discharge rears its three-headed hydra consisting of vet players Royston "Rainy" Wainwright on bass, Anthony "Bones" Roberts and Terence "Tezz" Roberts (who returned in 2014 and shifted over to second guitar from drums) for a new full-length, "End Of Days". Jeff "J.J. " Janiak has taken over for Anthony "Rat" Martin, and, of course, Kelvin "Cal" Morris before him, while drummer Dave Bridgewood (aka Dave Caution) rounds out DISCHARGE as a quintet. With added beef to their already grisly din, "End Of Days" sounds just like that: a whipping punk cataclysm yielding no quarter until the final tick of its 33:43 running time. The album wastes no time making a colossal impact with the fast and noisome "New World Order". J.J. Janiak fits DISCHARGE's undulating chaos like a pristine-gelled Liberty spike. "Raped And Pillaged" is an appropriate title as DISCHARGE goes even faster for 1:45 with some of the album's choppiest beats from Dave Caution. "Meet Your Maker", more of the same in less time at 1:22. If it's even fathomable, the pace on the title track rockets another couple clicks, only with tighter beats, tighter guitar lines, tighter everything. "The Broken Law", "Killing Yourself To Live" and "Looking At Pictures of Genocide" slow down a smidge, but lose not a lick of momentum. Ditto for "False Flag Entertainment" with guitar flurries making the song seem faster than it is. "Hatebomb", "Accessories By Molotov (Part 2)" and "Population Control" are some of the most furious performances on "End Of Days", which says everything on album that's fucking intense from start-to-finish. Brilliant
