DISCORDANCE AXIS was a three-piece Grindcore band that was started in Brunswick, New Jersey, USA around 1992. In the beginning the band played straight forward Grind influenced by the likes of NAPALM DEATH, but on later releases they showcased a very original stlye: the guitar lines were both technical and dissonant and added creative overdubs to augment the melodies, the drummer added complex rolls, fills and jaring rhythmic shift to the usual barrage of blastbeats found in Grindcore and the vocals alternated between shrill shrieks and a gastrointestional roars, another interesting fact is that the band had no bassist. DISCORDANCE AXIS is far away from the sound of many, many typical Grindcore bands and worth to be checked out.
"Jouhou" is the second full length of the band and firstly was released in 1997 on DEVOUR from The United States.
