Misery Index - Dissent
This EP has been released in the end of 2004 somewhere, and I’ve finally found some time to do a review of this disc. It deserves to be reviewed, because Misery Index has so much quality in their work, no (death-) metalhead should miss out on these guys.
The album consist of the track “Dissent” which is divided up in 4 tracks, which gives a playing time of 13 minutes. Then there’s also a fifth track, “Defector”.
Considering that this probably is the last recording with Kevin Talley behind the drum kit, that alone makes this EP a collectors item. Talley has recently joined forces with Chimaira.
Now, what to expect from "Dissent", is everything you’ve heard on the previous full-length release "Retaliate", only with the more intense drumwork from the first EP "Overthrow". Bassist Jason Netherton is again doing vocals all by himself, which pleases me still, since he doesn’t sound like your everyday grunt machine.
New on this recording is the addition of a second guitarist named Bruce Greig, but I can’t confirm if he’s still playing with Misery Index. Too bad that these guys have so many line-up problems. I’d like to see them touring around here more often.
Since this band faces a still unpredictable future, I hope they manage to keep playing, keep people alert of this f*cked up society and most of all, keep headbanging!
