Release Date: 2003 | Tracklist

Review Summary: Frenzied aggression, biting social commentary and superb musicianship combine to create one of the best hardcore releases of the 2000's.

D-beat/Crustpunk is a genre I knew very little about before hearing Misanthropic Generation. The legendary yet reclusive user and friend of mine IntoThePit otherwise known as Nick, introduced me to the band almost a year ago. Disfear utilize fast paced drum patterns, chaotic guitars featuring sometimes out of control guitar solo's and a vocalist chomping at the bit to scream his way down to hell. The song structures use the same frenzied rhythms and downtuned power chords to create something that is so much more than standard hardcore. You see, Disfear have managed to fuse something that the masses are for the most part unaware of (crustpunk/d-beat etc) with a hardcore tinge that just sounds fun.

Lyrically Misanthropic Generation is very serious, featuring topics of war, political instability, the futility of organized religion and the general decline of civilization as we know it. Musically, this is an album which simply gives you a gigantic burst of energy. This is everything that music should be in that it is intense, entertaining, engaging, intelligent and overall energetic. Things begin to get slightly repetitive by the time The Final Of Chapters rears it's head. Chords are recycled, drums beats start to sound the same, and the harsh barking of the legendary Tomas Lindberg (ex vocalist of At The Gates and countless other metal bands) begins to wear the listener down slightly.

All things considered, the flaws on the album are far outweighed by the quality of this album. People who enjoy the music that Disfear make are not exactly looking for melody in the traditional sense. They are (like myself I imagine) dissatisfied with the status quo and looking for something that provides a proper sense of discontent and aggression. This aggression can be expressed in a healthy way by listening to music like this. Disfear have created something loud and obnoxious but in an intelligent way, not succumbing to brutish techniques or inane lyrical ideas.

Plainly stated, this is a record which demands both you're attention and respect. Enjoy the chaos and inevitable mosh pits which will ensue wherever you are when Misanthropic Generation is played at an obscene volume with other like minded metal heads m/.

Live the Storm is better than this. Good review dude. I would cut this line out, totally irrelevant:

The legendary yet reclusive user and friend of mine IntoThePit otherwise known as Nick, introduced me to the band almost a year ago.

No, it's needed. You need to give credit where credit's due.
