Label: Repulsive Echo
A totally worthy compilation is either one that gathers many rarities or hard to find tracks or the one that you will hear again and again through different periods of your life. Well I have in mind a couple of collections that have some b-sides or relics of some of favorite bands but most of these kinds of albums share tons of dust in my discotheque. But not this one, as it features quiet interesting versions of some brilliant compositions.
As Misery Index explain: Much like our last compilation ‘Pulling Out The Nails‘, this release is comprised of a diverse collection of ‘odds and ends’ tracks from EPs, splits and bonus tracks, which were not always accessible to (or even heard by) many. Again, we have a decade behind us, with many adventures, mishaps and insalubrious achievements along the way.
So we have dragged forth an assortment of detritus from the waste bins of past recording sessions. As always, thanks to you all for the support and we look forward to seeing you all somewhere along the road during the next ten years (assuming the world does not implode).”
Personally speaking I wouldn’t mind more covers, and I don’t care if it would be a simple adaptation or progressive arranging with extra doses of Misery Index personality on their influences, as they deliver on Bolt Thrower’s classic from 1994 “When Glory Reckons” (and the album “…For Victory”) or Ministry, M.O.D., Sepultura and Nailbomb as 5 covers on a dozen of songs is a brave ratio, yet the track-listing is substantial. Of course I’m talking about fans of the band that would feel really happy to bridge the gap until their favs new studio effort (that will come in 2022) with a tasty and filling 12-song collection.
Always with the signature high standards of the Athenian label of Repulsive Echo Records.
