Label: Calimocho Autoproduzioni
The name Miseria and the way this record looks like reminds me of the legendary crust punx Misery from the United States. But this record is not what it seems to be. And... the first think you'll notice is that there's no 7" vinyl in the record sleeve but a CD! It's a CD disguised in a 7" record package. If you still want to play the record (after the disappointment that it's digital instead of yours truly vinyl) you'll notice that it's worth it and it's better than your generic crust band's shitty 7".
So, what we have here is not Misery from Minneapolis, not a 7" but CD, not some shitty crust/grind/noise record but MISERIA - totally dedicated to both the music and the message DIY hardcore punk band from Varese, Italy. Their debut CD packaged as vinyl EP consists of nine fast and tight songs with a total length of about 16 minutes.
The music is fast as I like it and reminds me of the old Italian bands like Negazione and Wretched. The guitars remind me of the British punk legends Conflict, one of my favorite bands. The lyrics are all in Italian but there's a separate sheet of paper with their translations in English. Despite the short songs the lyrics are quite long, very well written and far more sensible than the usual crap 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 that are still political and damn serious.
