I have a very special review today, an *EARLY Review* as I was fortunate enough to get my hands on this album before it’s release date to hopefully entice your appetite enough that when it does drop you’ll be the first in line ready to click that play button or purchase the physical copies! So without any further a due, allow me to present Misanthropik Torment -Murder Is My Remedy This album marks the latest 2021 release by Band ‘Misanthropik Torment’ featuring legendary business man Erick Levi of Misanthropik Records! When I reviewed their last EP ‘THE Leviathan’ I gave it a good score because I enjoyed the diversity in sounds, the balance and the intensity the album presented and the scale in which it did it. This time around we are looking at a more structurally cohesive album with Misanthropik Torment sticking to a few key sounds throughout the record but again utilizing what they have to the greatest extent possible. For this album I felt the two main genres at play were -Grindcore -Thrash Metal I felt a strong sense of these two genres the most throughout the project with a combination of deep death growls and high pitch screams guttural to the ear combined with the speed and ferociousness that comes with the instrumentation of Grindcore wailing guitars, brutal drum patterns all mixed together in a chaotic neutral harmony. Then on top of that I felt a sense of Thrash inspired guitar solos, tempo and production with my mind automatically sensing a strong ‘Christ Illusion/Reign In Blood’ influence with the dark and heavy layering of the production. What’s also interesting about this album this time around is the various voice samples used at the start of most tracks, some are used later on as the bases for the chorus such as ‘King Of Fools’ where the intro starts off with ‘Who Wants To Be King?!’ And then the chorus repeats ‘Everybody Wants To Be The King’ and other times it’s just used as a witty or mood setting intro but none the less I liked the touch, made the album feel that much more grand. This album is only 8 tracks and barely over 34 minutes long but it doesn’t waste any time being resourceful with every second to provide the listener with a brutal experience from the moment you start the album to the moment it ends. The production is crisp and dark with the darkness sucking you into this whirlwind of insanity, the instrumentation as I said earlier is chaotic but skillfully presented as you can tell there was order amongst the carnage which is a massive compliment to the band involved. And then we have the vocals which just like last time are energetic, passionate and down right scary at times showing on regular occasion to be just as good if not better then the last EP showing more diversity in the octaves and going back and forth between the high pitch and guttural growls is quite impressive considering most bands stick with one style not both. I know this album isn’t even out yet but I need you all to listen to me when I say this should be on all your raiders for metal, I’m going to go out on a limb and say as far as extreme metal/grindcore goes I really can’t see any other album topping this one, it’s truly a colossal of an experience and doing so in only 8 tracks is more impressive. I’m excited for all of you to hear this and when the time comes for the release best believe I’ll be here promoting again this album and making sure everywhere possible knows about it’s release and urge everyone to give it a try as it will blow you away as it did me! Also as an added bonus go check out the link to sample every track! Keep your eye out for this, Keep your ear out for this and most importantly KEEP IT RELENTLESS! - Relentless Reviews

A lot of people ask what is the meaning behind ' Misanthropik Torment '? " Misanthropy is an extreme hatred for humanity, in which I do have, however by my nature I am not a hateful person, it is the sickness of humanity that has driven me to be Misanthropik . Because by my nature I am not a hateful person, I am tormented by my own hatred, thus Misanthropik Torment was created. I am the product of what the world has created me to be, this monster that they hate is the reflection of themselves. " - Leviathan
