Misery Signals - Controller (CD)

Misery Signals
by Yiannis Dafopoulos at 18 August 2008, 11:30 PM

As I have said many times in the past, when I see the Ferret logo it is kind of creepy since 100% of this label's releases are either boring to death or just so bad that I want to kill myself. This time I thought it would be different due to something I read on the back of this promo CD.

MISERY SIGNALS are here to present their third - if I am not mistaken - studio album through the US label Ferret Music. The fact that made me have high hopes about this band is that I read that this album was produced by the one and only Devin Townsend, and Townsend is not only a professional, but he is also a man who can make a band go beyond its abilities.

Unfortunately, the music MISERY SIGNALS play in Controller is not much different from the 'classic' Ferret sound. The band is based upon its Hardcore influences adding some melodic lines here and there, as well as some riffing with non standard tempo to make something that we like to call Metalcore. The good thing is that there are no Screamo or Emocore stuff in here. In fact, the singer has a more than ass kicking throat and his brutal vocals will make you forget all the whining pussies you have come across. There are also some nice riffs here and there that show that this band has some potential.

Even though Controller is far from being considered a good album by me, I can't say that I got bored while listening to it. It is this kind of album that I can listen to for a few times (only a few times) without getting bored, but that's it. So, fans of the specific sound will definitely find many interesting things in this band, but for the rest of you… I don't think so.
