First 111 copies pressed on RED vinyl exclusive to HHR mailorder. All copies of the 7" EP come with a free download card. Features a brand new studio track & a studio recording of "Rule of the Beast" from their debut demo.

In anticipation for their forthcoming debut album on HELLS HEADBANGERS, the unholy BAT unleash a scorching slab of 7" vinyl, Cruel Discipline. Featuring two exclusive songs, Cruel Discipline lays bare BAT's raison d'etre: crude 'n' rude speed metal wreckage, with an extra helping of sleaze. In fact, both songs - the title track and its flipside, "Rule of the Beast" - spell out the power-trio's philosophy in no uncertain terms, and then grinds posers into the ground. Which is not surprising, considering BAT comprises metal lifers, their impressive lineup featuring ex-DRI drummer Felix Griffin, Municipal Waste's Ryan Waste on vocals and bass, and Volture's Nick Poulos on guitar. Beware of the BAT and obey their Cruel Discipline!
