Misery Speaks - Catalogue Of Carnage
Misery Speaks is a band that with the release of Catalogue Of Carnage (their third full-length release) is trying to find their way in the very crowded melodic death metal scene. Nowadays a scene that consists of a lot of copycats. A scene which hay day has passed years ago. Does Misery Speaks really add something to this scene or is this just again mediocrity at its best?
 
As noted in the introduction this is a variant of melodic death metal, though Misery Speaks is more of the heavy kind in that broad spectrum. They also mix some modern deathcore influences in their music, without suffocating in numerous breakdowns or chewed out riffs.
 
It´s been a while since I listened to this genre, because of the lack of interesting releases and my taste of music that is continuously shifting. I have to say that they impressed me. They can be compared with modern day Dark Tranquillity mixed with influences of bands like Dead To Fall and Heaven Shall Burn. Don´t expect that this is a groundbreaking release or something like that. They just kick serious ass, with a singer who possesses a great growl and a rhythm section which is as tight as a virgin.
 
This is just a great addition to the scene. Nothing complicated, nothing fancy, but straightforward melodic death metal! If you like Dark Tranquillity than you should really check this band out.
