On October 2nd 2018 the debut EP entitled ‘Inability to Cope’ by Misanthropic Aggression will be released on cassette by Boris Records. The band was founded by Jake Benedict as a solo project in 2015.
Jake played drums in Repulsory and in Atlanta, long-time underground grind gods Spewtilator. Switching to bass, he eventually recruited a drummer and a guitar player, and Misanthropic Aggression began to move forward rapidly. They self-released a two-song demo last year and on the strength of that we now have their debut EP.
It is in the band’s name. Aggression. A word that sums up this feral assault of hardcore/deathcore metal. Misanthropic Aggression absolutely rage for around 20 minutes and across 8 tracks (some of which come in at around the minute mark).
This is an absolute barn-burner of a release and from the moment Prove Yourself rips and tears through the soft brain matter you’re in for a good time. Momentum is kept high, the energy of this band is incredible and they don’t take their foot of the gas for even a moment.
There’s no filler or fluff. Misanthropic Aggression are all about getting in, slamming their metal down hard on the table and getting out as the title track, Anonimity and a wicked cover of S.S.D.’s Boiling Point prove.
Do yourself a favour and listen to this EP.
