Of course, Misery needs no introduction, having been prophesizing the end times while blasting our ears for the last 31 years now.
Founders of what has become known as "Minneapolis Crust" Misery were one of the first American crust punk bands, blending together the energy of Discharge with the grimy smash of Motorhead and dark-hippiesh lyrics of Black Sabbath.
5 years in the making, and 17 years since their last LP, Misery has released their crowning achievement. This time around sees Misery wielding their bass driven claustrophobic heaviness of the earliest work and combing that with the powerful clear production of the later releases.
"From Where the Sun Never Shines" displays everything one has come to expect from them, uncompromising darkness and the bleakest of worldviews while always holding onto the faintest glimmer of hope. Trends come and go, but Misery remains, bowing to no one.
Fittingly, the album's end features a cover of Amebix's "I.C.B.M." It's proper in that the whole album almost feels like the American take on that LP. The band rampage forward, maintaining a massive heaviness, all while mixing the political with the pagan.
