Misery Signals - Of Malice and the Magnum Heart (2004)

Genre: Metalcore

Misery Signals were formed as a result of two tragic events - the break-up of metalcore pioneers 7 Angels 7 Plagues, whom vocalist Jesse Zaraska had effectively dedicated his life to, and then the death of his bandmates in his other project, Compromise. As a result of this, his raw emotions come through and you can really feel his misery and anger in the vocal performance, which I have to say has some pretty cool layering at times. As a band Misery Signals combine heavy chugging guitar sections along with the occasional melodic section without coming across as generic, which combined with the sheer emotional factor makes for a damn good album.
