Misery - Next Time 7" (1995)


While a lot of the crust/anarcho punk that I dug in high school has, over time, revealed itself to be laughably unlistenable, I'll always back this 7", one of the first vinyl purchases I ever made. The title track, a eulogy to a deceased friend, is IMO one of the greatest crust recordings of all time, and could serve as the perfect primer for the genre; it's dirty, driving, passionate, raw, and heavy -- everything crust should be. The other two tracks can't quite keep up, but they're damn good, especially the dirge-like "Midnight".

Track listing:
1. Next Time
2. Full
3. Midnight

We'll see truth through our demise

  1. Grew up in Minneapolis, seemed like Misery played every weekend. The crust scene there was amazing. Good record.
