Austrian/French brutal death metal maniacs of Monument Of Misanthropy are set to release their upcoming new EP titled “Capital Punisher” this October. Like on the band’s critically acclaimed pre-decessor and full-length debut “Anger Mismanagement”, French drum-wizard Romain Goulon (Necrophagist, ex-Benighted) is providing studio-drums. The album’s cover artwork was created by Remy Cuveillier of Headsplit Design, Paris, France.
Today Monument Of Misanthropy has dropped a trailer with exactly 666 seconds of brand new tunes of the band’s forthcoming EP, which can be streamed via YouTube below.
Explains frontman George “Misanthrope” Wilfinger:
“After this year’s European Tour with Vader and Immolation, we went directly to the studios to put our finishing touches to this new EP. We’ve been playing “At Death’s Door” already during that 3-weeks run, and later some more new songs from it during this year’s summer festivals. People seemed to love the new tracks as much as they love the classic MoM-tracks. So if you like your deathmetal brutal with hints of deathgrind, grindcore, slam and old-school death & thrash, I think this album will be your cup of tea.
We also recorded two new covers for it (Death’s “Pull The Plug” and The Faceless’ “Prison Born”), putting the typical Monument Of Misanthropy sound to it. To sum up, I can say that with our own lyrical themes ranging from political and economic corruption, to animal abuse, and psychological struggles of a misanthropic mass murderer, I think “Capital Punisher” serves perfectly as 2017’s cataclysmic and cynical soundtrack for a world gone criminally insane. Brutal music for brutal times.

01 Epilogue I
