MISERY INDEX picture
Misery Index is an American death metal band formed in 2001 in Baltimore, Maryland by Jason Netherton (bass, vocals), Mike Harrison (guitar, vocals) and Kevin Talley (drums). Some say the band is named after Assück's last album of the same name (1996), however the socio-political theme featured in many of the lyrics also point towards the economic term (both increasing inflation and unemployment result in the rise of the misery index). As of 2006, its line-up consists of Jason Netherton (bass, vocals), Sparky Voyles (guitar), Mark Klöppel (guitar) and Adam Jarvis (drums).

Their music is best described as death metal with strong hardcore and grindcore influences. Their vein of music is often said to resemble their fellow Maryland death metal outfit Dying Fetus, as Netherton and Voyles are former members of the band. Misery Index's lyrical subject matter is quite left-wing, often coinciding with anarcho-punk aesthetic and focusing mostly on

MISERY INDEX Dissent

EP · 2004 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Stooge
The Dissent EP served as my introduction to the recording career of Misery Index. I first saw them at a gig they played in Oshawa, Ontario. In spite of the sparse attendance, they put on a great show, and managed to win a fan. I quickly grabbed a CD copy of this release off them, as this is what they were promoting at the time.

It’s a brief recording, so my description of it is as well. The EP is mostly built on tracks forming a piece titled (as one should guess) “Dissent”. The exception is “Defector (Thinning The Herd)”.

“Sheep and Wolves” kicks off the EP at a slow pace with a slice of sludge, but the pace picks up on “Exception to the Ruled” brings more aggressive playing and more varied tempo. The third track, “The Imperial Ambition”, is probably the most straightforward but still entertaining track here, and drummer Kevin Talley shines with his strong blasting ability and double bass work. Pretty much from the third track on there are no surprises, featuring a consistent, no-nonsense blend of death metal, hardcore, and a bit of grind.

I regret not buying the vinyl edition of this EP. I haven’t heard it, but it contains a cover of Minor Threat’s “Screaming at a Wall” that is not on the CD.

Nice EP, and easy to please fans of high-tempo metal looking for a quick fix.

MISERY INDEX Heirs To Thievery

UMUR
"Heirs To Thievery" is the 4th full-length studio album by US death metal act Misery Index. The album was released in May 2010 by Relapse Records.

The music on the 11 track, 34:21 minute long album is a combination of death metal, grindcore and deathcore. No matter what you choose to tag the music the key element in the band´s sound is relentless and fierce aggression. These guys are angry and they´ve chosen to write music that succesfully channels that anger. If you ever need a kick in the ass or a slap in the face, I suggest you put on "Heirs To Thievery". The music on this album is so powerful it threatens to blow you to pieces. While the pace in the songs is usually fast to blasting, Misery Index more than masters playing heavier riffs too. Take a listen to the mid-paced heavy "The Seventh Cavalry" for proof of that. The songs are pretty simple in structure ( yet full of little details) and very effective in terms of powerful delivery but they are also quite memorable. Hooks in extreme metal are a luxury, but Misery Index deliver one memorable hook after the other on "Heirs To Thievery". And we´re not necessarily talking melodic hooks. It´s how the rythms in the vocals and the riffs are delivered that matters here. Not that there are no melodic elements in the songs, because there are melodic lead fills here and there, but the focus is on crushingly brutal riffs and fierce aggression.

The musicianship on the album is excellent. We´re talking razor sharp riffing and precision drumming. The vocals vary between deep growls and aggressive raw vocals. The latter has a "core" edge to them.

The production is very powerful. One of the things I noticed upon first listen was how high the drums are in the mix and to great effect IMO.

"Heirs To Thievery" more than delivers what I had hoped for. Actually I was a bit afraid that the "core" element in the band´s sound would have an effect on how much I could appreciate the album, but the dose of "core" elements is just right. Misery Index fortunately avoid many of the clichés in deathcore and when they pull out a breakdown or some other feature that you would normally associate with that genre it works. I can´t give a scientific explanation to how come that is, but these guys just know how to write effective extreme metal, that you won´t come across very often. A 4 - 4.5 star rating is deserved.
