D-beat - Legacy


While Discharge influenced the thrash metal bands of the mid-1980s (particularly Metallica, Anthrax and Sepultura), D-beat has remained an underground movement. The Brazilian group Ratos de PorĂ£o were also a prominent inspiration for Sepultura, and Swedish Discore groups had a significant influence on Swedish death metal. Although bands have played in this style since the early 1980s, hardcore punk experienced a resurgence of interest in Discharge and Scandinavian/Japanese- influenced hardcore in the late 1990s and the early 21st century. Many of these bands also take inspiration from crust punk; bands such as Wolfbrigade and Tragedy are largely responsible for the movement towards fusing the driving Discharge sound with dark, melodic elements reminiscent of Amebix.
