Miseo are a band from Germany that plays an old school form of death metal mixed in with some elements of crustcore and this is a review of their 2014 album "Lunatic Confessions" which will be released in September by Blacksmith Records.
Acoustic guitars start off the album along with a melodic guitar lead which also leads up to some drums kicking in and after the intro the music starts going for more of an old school death metal sound along with some growling vocals and you can also hear a decent amount of melody in the bands musical sound.
After awhile blast beats and elements of crustcore are added into the bands musical sound and they also bring in a perfect balance between slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as adding a brutal sound into their old school approach to playing death metal and grindcore and as the album progresses solos and leads can be heard in certain sections of the recording.
On some of the later tracks spoken word parts and elements of groove are added into the bands musical sound while the guitar leads add in a melodic early 90's death metal sound when they are utilized and some of the fast parts also see the band adding d beat's into their musical style as well as bringing in high pitched screams at times and combining them with the growls.
Miseo remain true to the old school death metal sound that they had established on the previous recording while also adding more elements of crust and grindcore into their musical sound to make their newer recording have more diversity, the production has a very professional and old school sound while the lyrics cover violent and pissed off themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Miseo and if you are a fan of old school death metal with elements of crust and grindcore, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Greed Kills" "Harlots For God" "Lunatic Confessions" and "NO Guts No Glory". 8 out of 10.
