DISCHORD - Death Metal . Thrash Metal
“The music is tight as hell, this band is all about the old-school, their strength does not come in the shape of sickening blast-beats but in a more destructive way of playing.”
DISCHORD began festering in the murky swamps of Moncton, NB, Canada in 2004. Harboring anger towards the corrupted status quo; they scream out socially conscious lyrics that denounces the horrors that can be found in our society. Forging razor sharp guitar attacks, technical drumming and vicious vocals, the band creates their own style of technical darkened Death/Thrash metal.
With over a decade of musical output, Dischord has released 2 studio albums, 1 live album, 1 EP and 1 music video. Having played around 300 shows since it’s inception, the band has shared the stage with Behemoth, The Black Dahlia Murder and Cryptopsy to name a few. In 2017, Dischord signs on with PRC Music, further cementing themselves as one of the leaders of the East coast metal scene.
Their first album, “Siege of Darkness”, is praised by their rabid fan base to be the “Reign in Blood” of East Coast Canada. While their second album, “Casualties of War”, charted at #2 on the national Canadian Loud Charts and they received an East Coast Music Awards nomination for loud recording of the year in 2012.
High speed aggressive guitars, technical drumming, vicious vocals and progressive song structures are all characteristics that describes the extreme metal band based out in Moncton, NB called DISCHORD. Persevering against all odds and rejuvenated with new blood in the band, Dischord once again emanates pride, ambition and a will to conquer. Always striving for originality and remaining true to themselves, they write aggressive music that reflects the horrors of our society. As much as there is discordances in the band's music, Dischord's lyrics are about the discordance of a globalized uni-cultural capitalistic world that is on a rapid decline towards oblivion and also the discordance that can be found in one's soul. Fighting for the next generation, they are defined by what they hate.
DISCHORD have opened shows for a lot of high profile bands in the past such as Napalm Death, Behemoth, Martyr, Cryptopsy, Origin, Skinless, Anonymus, Neuraxis, Misery Index,The Black Dahlia Murder, Exhumed, Fuck The Facts, Unexpect, Augury, Quo Vadis, Beneath the Massacre, Ion Dissonance and Macabre.
