Anarcho-punk from Italy. CD in a 7-inch record sleeve

miseriacdArtist: Miseria

Title: Miseria

Release: CD

Label: Calimocho Autoproduzioni

For the record, this is Miseria from Italy, not Misery from Minneapolis!

The CD comes in a 7-inch record sleeve, so when I received it I thought it was a vinyl record. Now straight to business. Miseria play some really nice tunes, there are nine fast and tight songs with a total length of about 16 minutes. The music is as fast as I like it and reminds me of the old Italian bands like Negazione and Wretched. The guitars remind me of British punk legends Conflict and other anarcho-punk classics. All lyrics are sung in Italian, but there’s a separate sheet of paper with the English translations.

Despite the short songs, the lyrics are actually quite long and very well written. This record is much more sensible than the usual unoriginal crap that most of the faster hardcore and crust bands used to write. So instead of the same old slogans you’ll find really intelligent and well written lyrics without losing their punk intensity and political charge. I really love this record.
