One man extreme death/grind band Misrule will release a demo tape, Forced to Suffer on March 2nd 2018 via Sentient Ruin. Misrule is an unrestrained and completely uncontrolled exercise in total aural terror.
When non-metal fans turn their nose up at the genre & claim it’s just noise & screaming, it’s Misrule they’re talking about. 5 tracks, 8 minutes of pure assault. An absolute car crash of screeching guitars, rumbling bass, crashing drums & deeply guttural vocals. A car crash of twisted limbs, broken bodies & bloodied remains…horrifying & disturbing but difficult to look away from.
That’s exactly what Forced to Suffer is yet there is something appealing about grind/death that is this raw & unrefined. It does take talent to create order out of this level of chaos & the more you listen to the Demo, the clearer it becomes.
It’s not all ‘mile a minute’ stuff either as Led to the Grave & Death Embrace Me slows things down briefly bringing guitar feedback & doomy bass to the forefront.
It’s hard to recommend the likes of Bleed though. 40 seconds of contemptuous vomitous metal that leaves no impression at all. Thankfully it ends on a high with Maggot actually having a bit of rhythm to it as it fades out.
