      Eyes Of The Lord 'Misery Feels Like Home' Album Review by Allyson Kingsley

      Eyes Of The Lord

      Misery Feels Like Home

      Closed Casket Activities

      Album Review By Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

      Boston Rock Radio 

         

      Not much information came along with this album promotion and I like to think of that as a good thing sometimes. Like a Xmas treat in your stocking. Maybe too much info steers you into a predetermined direction, already clouding your thoughts. Eyes of the Lord is a phenomenal treat and Misery Feels Like Home is a monster album. Old school hardcore is the main ingredient but within the songs there are hints at other influences. 

      "Survival” introduces the album with a perfect percussive battle march with a sinister undertone. Then "Should Be" reigns heavy, furious, thick and rich. It is stomping riffs and brutal grooves, an energetic blend of fury and force. "Misery Feels Like Home" hit like a wrecking ball, steadily soaring, yet pummeling everything in their path. That's what is so great about Eyes of the Lord. It's heavy without being overbearing; it's angry without being off-putting. They are not breaking any new ground on Misery Feels Like Home, they're just doing it all exceptionally well. I like my hardcore with a side of metal, and they are serving it up just right. 

      About midway through the album we have a sort of interlude in "Looking for an Enemy," which is instrumental and sounds like it would be perfect in a horror movie of the vampiric variety. I'm not sure why it's there but it's certainly a strange gothic touch. And then all of a sudden you are thrown back in the fucking pit with "Addicted to Suffering.”  Inflamed is the word here. The drummer in me is absolutely in love with this entire album (note to self to meet this drum god one day) but the beat of "Bits" got me moving. 100% phenomenal. 

      Aye, and then another interlude with the creepy electronic sounding "Mind of the Page.” A foreplay to the devilishly heavy raw "Broken Hearts" and don't we all know about carrying scars to the end. "Rakkasans" has a Slayer vibe to its riffs and the lyrics. “Loyalty you won't understand. Do you risk it all for another man" could be about war or just in general interpersonal relationships. An album of excellent workmanship.
