A Brutal Sight of War captures the raw early days of Disfear. Originally released in 1993 it is a perfect reflection of the Swedish hardcore sounds of those days. Raw down tuned D beat hardcore with a heavy influence from Anti Cimex and Discharge. But with many of the Swedish bands of this era, there is a bit of influence from Swedish Death Metal, notably Entombed lurking beneath the gritty and raw surface. And we should not be surprised as it was recorded at Sunlight Studios when that name was associated with only the finest in Swedish Death Metal and Hardcore.
