Metal of the Week - Men in Search of the Perfect Weapon, S/T


Men in Search of the Perfect Weapon, S/T One of the many gems that I was rewarded with in reading/listening to hours of music is Germany's Men In Search of the Perfect Weapon.  These guys know how to write memorable songs/riffs and still remain insanely heavy. I've heard some people compare them to Neurosis or Isis but they are (thankfully) far from the NeurIsis tag that follows the genre.  And if you wanna lump them in with those types of bands than MISPW are the fucking dirty, drug abusing, scarred and hated step-children.  There are no flowers on their amps.  There is no peace and hope.  And these are all good things in the land of NeurIsis clones.  If I have to listen to one more "cerebral" build up that never knows how to bring the goddamn Thunder of the SunnAmp for the happy ending... Other than their demo, Men in Search of the Perfect Weapon haven't released anything else under the moniker.  That's a shame but better to be great and leave then stick around and fizzle like a bunch of has-beens. Bottom line - these guys bring the heavy, with a touch of melody but with 100% energy.
