Discipline X are a band from Finland that plays a mixture of punk rock and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Wasted" which will be released by Inverse Records.
The album starts out with a very heavy and old school thrash/speed metal sound which leads up to some melodic vocals and back up shouts that bring a punk rock feeling to the recording which also leads up to guitar solos becoming a part of the music.
As the album continues the music starts going for more of a crossover direction while the metal influence is a lot more stronger than the punk rock influence this recording has and you can also hear a great amount of melody in the music and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and they also have a brief acoustic instrumental before returning to a heavier direction on the last song.
With this album Discipline take a very old school and melodic form of 80's thrash and mix it in with the punk rock of the early bands and Epitaph Records to create a sound that is very retro while still being original all at the same time.
Song lyrics cover real life themes like drinking, relationships and sloppy women, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy, old school and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Discipline X are a very great sounding mixture of thrash metal and punk rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Walk To The Morgue" "Jewel Of The Nile" "I Want your blood" and "Whoring Hollywood". 8 out of 10.
