Song Premiere: Monument of Misanthropy’s “A Man with a Special Qualification”

Tuesday, 14th September 2021

Up for a good bludgeoning?  We are premiering a battering ram of a track from the upcoming Monument of Misanthropy album, Unterweger, called “A Man with a Special Qualification,” and it’s surely qualified to give you an audio beatdown.  Unterweger will be released on Transcending Obscurity Records on November 12, 2021 and it can be pre-ordered HERE.  Feel free to check out a few other already released tracks below as well.

About the track:
“A Man with a Special Qualification” wastes no time with fancy intros or atmospheric build-up, running from the start with blastbeats, whirlwinding riffs, and frantic howls to give you a good jostling from out of nowhere.  The track maintains it’s breakneck pacing, only dipping into some big chunky grooves that still hit hard, yet somewhat differently, to avoid sounding too one-dimensional.  The riffs hit, whether they are barreling away at full-speed or rumbling through some grooves.  A solid wake-up call for anyone who likes their death metal aggressive and decidedly brutal in nature.  A complete wrecking ball of a track.

Says the label:

Like a raging juggernaut in motion, Monument of Misanthropy are simply unstoppable and are here to decimate everything in their path. Armed with a new lineup which includes two new guitarists including one of De Profundis fame, a new bassist, and the drummer of Putridity, their sound is more powerful and well-rounded than ever before. Despite being incredibly heavy, there is more to their music than the body would suggest – the songwriting is intricate and layered, with there being several patterns that would belie the sheer heft of their music. The vocal performance too is among the best in the style – Georg, in addition to having a terrifying voice and an insane range, delivers in a rapid-fire method that is downright intimidating. It all coalesces together perfectly and elevates them above the expected stylistic confines of brutal death metal as a genre, while meeting every requirement and surpassing them too with aplomb. This is brutal death metal that’s not only devastatingly heavy, fast and crushing, but also has songwriting that attempts to transcend the brutality and keep things interesting, varied and engaging throughout. With ‘Unterweger’ being a concept album based on the shocking life of the transatlantic serial killer Jack Unterweger, it’s all the more effective as the band’s able to convey the horror in their own palpable, hard-hitting and memorable manner.
