Hear Nothing See
Nothing Say Nothing:
The CVLT Nation Sessions
There is no greater influential band on my life. Yes Slayer is my favorite band. Yes I love Devo, Agnostic Front, Napalm Death, Johnny Cash, Ramones and the list goes on into the tens of thousands and across most genres of music. But Discharge had the greatest impact on both my frame of mind, my guitar and drum playing and how I lived my life. I still get chills and have a mental adjustment (kind of like a chiropractic adjustment for the mind) every time I hear those early Discharge records.
"Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing" has long been a mandatory record to own, feel, enjoy, study and absorb into your existence, whether you are into metal, punk or hardcore and EVERY subgenre linked to those genres, not just those who live by the D-beat.
I love Discharge so much, I mail ordered directly to Sweden (and around the world) in the early 80s to get all those records by all those bands who also joined together in their love of Discharge as they created their own music. Mob 47, Crude SS, Anti Cimex etc... I actually bought an early Discharge 7" from Randy Now at City Gardens! I appreciated how countless bands took that influence and changed it into something their own. Discharge is one of the most important bands ever.
This is not the first album to compile Discharge cover songs and won't be the last. Even Metallica covers Discharge. The great thing is, I love listening to Discharge covers almost as much as I love listening to Discharge!

Every track on this is amazing. I have listened to these tracks ten times in the last two days. If I had more time, I would have listened to it twenty times. All hail Discharge!
Prior to this release, Cop Problem was the only band I knew. I've actually seen Cop Problem live, have their music and am a fan. CLVT's goal of widening the audience of participating bands was a success. I am now interested in each and every band on this compilation and am looking forward to discovering more by each of them! Problem is, I am having trouble finding some of them! If you can find any info on Tolar, Wölfes, Severe and/or Plagues (or any of the other bands) on the internet, please send me a link and I will update this post with that information!
