Over the years, Misery Index has been referred to repeatedly as a death metal version of DRI. I can’t think of a better or more accurate description. Being huge supporters of the Bush Administration (ha!), Traitors is the latest Misery Index album to employ the modern-life-is-misery motif. Excuse me if that sounds partisan but Misery Index didn’t drink any Obama punch either, which is precisely the point.
Lyrically, Traitors is an Alex Jones-style anti-globalization rant; yet another reason why this band rules. For more on this band’s awesome politics, please visit www.demockery.org. Musically, the DRI comparison is justified. Misery Index is either Dying Fetus with less guitar-wank or DRI with way, way more. Whatever makes you feel better.
