I have accumulated many personal reviews while listening to albums. My reviewing style is non-conventional and was only intended for myself. Sometimes I will only use one sentence to describe an album if I feel that is all that's required. Other times I will review an album while I'm still listening to it, leading to a song-by-song review of the album (bringing the size of the review to nearly dissertation-level). There are times when I will even come back to a review to add information that I didn't know when originally writing the review. The point is that I won't edit my reviews to make them more readable or conventional. My reviews are always a direct result of what I was feeling when I wrote them and I want to let that feeling come through.

Misery Index - Overthrow [2001]

For some reason I was expecting a much more "dead" recording quality. Oh well, pleasant surprise. There's definitely an element of that other great American Grindcore icon, Dying Fetus. A dash of evil mixed well with a metal spoon. It has a raw feel, but with a good structure to it. Fairly catchy riffs, nothing to throw a party about, but still enough to keep you awake. The energy feels pretty high as well.

Rating: 7.25
