In 1989, four Swedish teenagers with a shared love of Discharge, the pioneering English hardcore band, and of D-beat, the galloping musical style that Discharge helped invent, formed a band of their own, calling it, in homage, Disfear. Throughout the ensuing lineup changesincluding the addition of Tomas Lindberg, the former vocalist of the legendary death-metal band At the Gatesand the recent death of their longtime producer, Mieszko Talarczyk, the band has persevered. Disfears fifth studio album, Live the Storm, came out in February and was dedicated to Talarczyk. The records palpable fury is a more-than-fitting elegy for their fallen friend: After nearly 20 years, the bands never sounded fiercer or more alive. With Bloodhorse, Atakke, and Parasytic.
