Texas hardcore thrashers Protest have unleashed a tribute to UK hardcore punk legends Discharge with a cover of Realities Of War. the track is now available via Nuclear Blast’s digital subsidiary Blood Blast Distribution. The Dallas five-piece, who include current and former members of Hellions, Speedealer, M.O.D. and Chemicaust in their line up, effortlessly blends their classic thrash roots with a modern twist of hardcore and denim shredding, old school metal attitude. The Realities Of War single serves as a precursor to the band’s as-yet-untitled new EP that is set for release through Blood Blast Distribution this Fall.

“With our version of this song, I rearranged the parts and made it more like something Protest would have done if we had written the song. It’s double the length of the original and I made it a little more personal.” (guitarist Jason French)

Realities Of War is now available via Bandcamp and streaming platforms here
