After hearing about the split up of Dying Fetus and wanting to know what Kevin Talley and Jason Netherton are doing, I seeked out Misery Index. Misery sound like, of course, Dying Fetus minus the ultra guttural vocals. The three tracks for Misery Index are awesome because it sounds like old thrash mixed with the groove and just plain out bash your skull in riffs. Although what sets this apart is the bass guitar is actually heard in the mix which i think is great. My Untold Apocalypse starts off with raging blast beats that will tear your head off. Then at the end of the tracks for Misery is a cover for Disrupt. Which kills all. Not to mention that it will now be easier to pick these guys up as they have just signed with Nuclear Blast. I also state that Slayer asked Kevin Talley, whom is a very skilled drummer, to play for them and he turned them down!!!!!!!!!!! MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA

Commit Suicide's portion of the disc is very skilled and highly played deathcore. I have all the respect in the world for commit. One reason being that on their album Larvae, they actually recorded all the equipment live. Another reason for the respect of Commit is because they throw it all in a mixture. Very tight and very well played.Did i also mention that the death cover is actually giving the old death a run for their money? Deathcore can't get much better than this. Its going to be interesting to see where these guys go...............

5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible or an otherwise waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
