Crust punk was born in England at the beginning of the '80s. At that time punk was living again thanks to the American punk hardcore movement. Many hardcore bands such as GBH and Discharge were also rising in England, but the British never forgot the legacy of punk rock. Also, there was a particular hardcore band, Extreme Noise Terror, that was maybe too extreme for the genre. Napalm Death had released a demo in 1982, creating a sound that was soon to be called grindcore. All of this may seem just facts indipendent from one another, but actually the anarcho-punk movement took inspiration from all of these different sounds creating a fierce and aggressive sound, with harsh vocals, extremely distorted bass and guitars and pounding drums, at times fast as hell much like in the Extreme Noise Terror records.
