"No wonder extreme music just gets nastier and more oppressive, the most recent torchbearers coming in the form of the Australian mystery collective Miserist."
"The listener is invited to imagine all sorts of post-apocalyptic futures stimulated by their assault."
NO CLEAN SINGING
"The mysterious Australian force known as Miserist, barrage the listener with crushing guitars, concussive drums, and seem to have about as much remorse as the thresher has for grain it chews up and spits out"
"What Miserist delivers is an explosive and destructive blend of industrial, black and death metal, driving on a thick guitar sound and heaps of aggression"
I do not personally know Brendan Sloan, and can only infer certain things about him on the basis of the means through which he has chosen to communicate with the world: his music. As such, I would have to say that he must have gone through quite the ordeal prior to the making of Errata, as this is dark, menacing, dissonant, aggressive, and at times unsettling death metal. The Ulcerate influence is quite strong, but not only does this work never come off as derivative, it is actually quite refreshing and original. Although I prefer Grievous over this album (as it is more dynamic and less grim than Errata), Brendan Sloan can do no wrong, and this is death metal of the highest order. I cannot wait for what Convulsing has in store for us next. Ippocalyptica
