Misery Signals Bummed About Classification
In an article on ChartAttack.com, Misery Signals guitarist, Ryan Morgan, explains why it sucks to be them:
Actually, Morgan is happy about this success, he’s just discouraged by how people classify his band.
“I shouldn’t be bummed,” he continues. “We’ve been very lucky in this band so far and we all [Morgan, bassist Kyle Johnson, singer Jesse Zaraska, guitarist Stuart Ross and drummer Branden Morgan] know that. I think I’m just bothered by the metalcore comparisons, even though that’s technically how I would categorize us. But there are so many lame bands associated with that genre.”
With thunderous bass lines, apocalyptic pacing and a vocal attack that would make The Haunted stand up and take notice, Misery Signals certainly are riding a very close line to metal with Of Malice. Factoring in that these boys are steadfast punk/hardcore kids, it’s no wonder the album has been stuck with the typical metalcore tag.
“We’re a little more interesting than that I’d hope,” grunts Morgan. “When you think of metal, there are a lot of the same simple tonalities and open chords. We want to be a bit more challenging than that. Our sound is debated amongst the band constantly. No one has a really defined answer for it, but we’re all hardcore/punk rock kids. We have that mentality, but stylistically we’re a metal band.”
