Moss Folk is another exciting name I have discovered through Metalhead Community Blog submissions about two weeks ago with this very song; Misery Mothers, off from their debut EP; Demo, which was released in 2019. Misery Mothers is a powerful song with some delicious heavy and thrash metal influences from the ’90s. It was their influences, exciting ideas and the aggressive energy that caught my full attention when I heard of this song for the first time. As an upcoming band, they have reflected their true feelings into this record, which I believe is a crucial thing in any artists’ career. The song has overflowing energy that flows perfectly until the end of the song. Their vocalist is talented and also performed great in his specific screamo/hardcore style. I usually don’t listen to this genre that much but the familiar influences in their music were irresistible, especially for people like me who developed a taste by listening to bands like early Metallica, Slayer, and Testament.
The composition is pretty short (only two minutes long). However, we should keep in mind that this is just the debut album. So I consider this song as an introduction, a short demonstration of Moss Folk’s capabilities. This is quite a good point to start from, where they can develop their music and style in time in a healthy direction.
