4: Misery Index - The Killing Gods

The Killing Gods Misery Index are near and dear to my heart and they rarely disappoint. With The Killing Gods they once again up the ante. If there is something that needs to be said is that sound wise they've never sounded better, all you want to do is keep turning up the volume, it's the best sounding album they've produced to date. It's also I think the most even, the whole album flows very nicely and there are really no weak songs on this album. This is perhaps the only minor quibble I'd have is that there are no stand out tracks either, there is no obvious romper like You Lose here but first five tracks which collectively make up the song Faust might have a slight edge on the rest. Nonetheless this is an absolute monster of an album which I just can't quit.

6: Misery Index - Heirs To Thievery

Heirs To Thievery I've followed Misery Index since the first EP was released almost ten years ago, and they've pretty consistently released quality death/grind albums. I liked Discordia(2006) better than Traitors(2008), but other than that progress has been pretty linear. So Heirs To Thievery was anticipated and delivered, while I sometimes wish they would have put more emphasis on their grind credentials and less on the classic death metal there is nothing here to really complain about.
