Diskord biography
DISKORD is a progressive death metal band who were formed in Oslo,Norway in 2001 by Chris "Channard" Myhre (guitar),Kvile (guitar),Eyvind Wærsted Axelsen (bass) and Hans Jørgen Ersvik (drums,vocals).In 2001 they self-released their first demo,a 5 song ep simply titled "Demo 1".Guitarist Kvile left the band and instead of replacing him DISKORD continued on with a three piece line-up.

In 2003 DISKORD again self-released a second demo,titled "Aural Objection".The band signed to Vendius Records and in 2005 released the ep "hdfh".2007 saw DISKORD sign to the larger Edgerunner label and release their first full-length album,the well received "Doomscapes".

After the recording and release of "Doomscapes" guitarist Channard left DISKORD to focus on his band LOBOTOMIZED and was replaced by guitarist Espen T. Hangård.

DISKORD plays progressive death metal while still retaining the primal agression and discordant sounds of old-school death metal and are highly recommended.

— First review of this album —
4 stars "Dystopics" is the 2nd full-length studio album by Norwegian technical/progressive death metal act Diskord. The album was released through the No Posers Please! label in April 2012. Diskord made quite the impression on me with their 2007 debut album "Doomscapes", which is a filthy old school death metal album with added technical playing and progressive ideas. Since then the band have toured a lot in their native Norway and also made a change on the guitarist potition as H'vard 'stli has replaced Espen T'rressen Hang'rd (Hang'rd plays on "Dystopics" though), who himself had released Chris Myhre, who played on "Doomscapes". The usual suspects are Eyvind W'rsted Axelsen on bass and Hans J'rgen Ersvik on drums and lead vocals.

The music on "Dystopics" pretty much continue down the same filthy and technical old school death metal path as the music on "Doomscapes". I'm still reminded of early Darkthrone, Cadaver and Carbonized, played with the technical skill of Atheist and the dissonant weirdness of late eighties Voivod. Like the case was on the debut the technical playing is not implemented to flash virtuoso skills but a way to express chaotic darkness. The atmosphere on the album is bleak and aggression is the key word. The music is delivered with an infectious energy and great conviction. These guys mean business and it's perhaps heard no better than in the absolutely caustic vocal delivery by Hans J'rgen Ersvik. Look no further for snarling growling vocals that seem designed to sear iron. The music features both fast blasting parts, odd technical parts and slow filthy doomy sections too. The latter type sections at times remind me of early Autopsy. Rotten to the core.

The sound production is raw and organic giving plenty of room for all instruments. I especially enjoy how audible the bass is in the soundscape. The sound is perfect for the trio format.

"Dystopics" is another very strong and distinct sounding release by Diskord. "Doomscapes" took me completely by surprise when I listened to the album the first time and ultimately I think "Dystopics" lacks that surprise element to elevate it to the same extremely high level as "Doomscapes". It comes close though and a 4 - 4.5 star (85%) is fully deserved.

4 stars Doomscapes is the debut full-length studio album by Norwegian death metal act Diskord. The album was released in April 2007 by Edgerunner Music. The band is a three-piece and use what I characterize as classic rock/ metal trio instrumentation of guitar, bass, drums and vocals. No more, no less. Well that´s not entirely true as the band on a rare occasion use an accordion for effect. Something I initially mistook for keyboards/sound effects.

The music on the album is progressive and technical death metal. Unlike most other acts in the more technical part of the death metal spectrum, Diskord have a gritty and catchy old school death metal edge to their music. While the musicianship is outstanding on the album and you´re definitely in for your fair share of technical fast riffing and odd time signatures, the band focus less on scale shredding and impossible to play parts than many of their contemporaries. The technical playing is more a means to an end than show-off on Doomscapes. There´s a dark and obscure atmosphere surrounding the album and the brutal and absolutely caustic vocal delivery only enhances that atmosphere. It´s sort of like listening to the old school Norwegian death metal on Soulside Journey (1990) by Darkthrone or Hallucinating Anxiety (1990) by Cadaver combined with the extremely technical playing of Unquestionable Presence (1991)-era Atheist and the twisted dissonant chord progressions of late eighties Voivod. So Doomscapes is like a melting pot of different death metal/ metal styles with a sensibility towards the early nineties.

The album took me a while to embrace, and it´s safe to say Doomscapes isn´t an easily accessible album, but as mentioned above the band have a flair for creating memorable hooks and more simple out and out death metal parts to make the ride a bit less demanding. Those parts work like little breathers on an otherwise technical blizzard of an album. The production is raw and organic and suits the simplicity of instrumentation very well. Doomscapes is all in all a very unique album, full of filthy authentic aggression, innovative ideas and three musicians who know how to handle their instruments better than most. This is the kind of achivement that calls for a 4.5 star (90%) rating.
