Symbols of Misery

Rated 3/5 (60%) (3 Votes)

Mexican Thrash/Death Metal horde, Misanthrope, is loaded with South American temperament and untamed aggression on their debut album, Symbols of Misery, that brings you seven songs in less than 25 minutes.

Misanthrope's Death/Thrash Metal sounds all very familiar. It's actually Sepultura's Schizophrenia/Beneath the Remains times that they tend to remind me of here and there, but with a more unpolished, way simpler and rawer approach, without sounding nowhere near as catchy and kick-ass as this once so great Brazilian Thrash Metal group. Plus, Misantrope leans definitely more on Death Metal, especially due to vocalist Jesús M.'s death grunts adding a heavier effect that prevents them from sounding like a simple Sepultura copycat.

These four Mexican fellows sound enthusiastic and willing to show their growing balls to the whole world, but they are not quite ready for that yet.
