"Mis-ant-hrope" (Suretone Records; 2017)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

If the point of art is to communicate emotion, then "Mis-an-thrope" is pure art. Especially if it's anger, rage and angst that you're looking for.

"Mis-an-thrope" is a late night barroom brawl of an album. Each track is like the thrust of knuckles into the teeth, with no punches pulled and you will come out of this CD feeling pummeled. The guitars are heavy, the rhythm pounding and the vocals come off like singer Joe Cotela is screaming into your face just before he's gonna knock you on your ass with a straight punch to the bridge of your nose.

It's the kind of album you probably don't want to listen to while you're driving.

Fans of Slipknot and other aggresive rock'n'roll will no doubt find DED to their liking.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
