Misery Season [edit]
by As Lions and Lambs | Genre: Hard Rock/Metal | Release Date: July 02, 2021

Over the last year, the band has grown massively in recognition with their singles “No Return” and “Hate Speech”, which have gained over 150,000 streams.

It is with this energy and excitement that As Lions and Lambs celebrates their 8th year as a band, unleashing a new capstone of prowess and sonic innovation. The EP takes musical inspiration from the hardcore, deathcore, and beatdown scenes, finding a harmonious balance between the melodic riffs and downtempo chaos that the band is known for, while simultaneously reaching new levels of creative expression and aggression.

“Misery Season” is a dramatic look into the external and internal abuse that results from domestic violence and seeks to shed light on a silent but looming issue in our increasingly connected, yet paradoxically isolated world.

Misery Season - Aggressively Spotlighting Abuse | Posted July 08, 2021
What You Need To Know
Misery Season is a six-track EP from upcoming Christian-based deathcore band As Lions and Lambs. This is the eighth year of the band releasing music. Over 2020 and 2021, they have gathered over 150,000 streams on their two singles for this EP. 

What It Sounds Like
The EP takes musical inspiration from the hardcore, deathcore, and beatdown music genres. It reaches brutal heights, both musically and vocally. Yet, there is a variation of extreme music sounds heard within it. 

Spiritual Highlights
Misery Season is focused on domestic abuse and the dramatic effects it has in our lives, both externally and internally. As such, some songs and lyrics get quite darkfitting for the genre. As Lion and Lambs does not shy away from their faith and hope. Songs like "F.F.F" and "Escape Artist" offer more optimism. Songs like "Hate Speech" and "No Return" are brutal in their depth of the topic tackled. 

Best Song
"Escape Artist" features everything Misery Season offers. The musicianship and vocals are intense and relentless. Breakdowns and layered guitars are in abundance in the EP and showcased in this song. The message highlights the struggles of abuse while being an outreach to God for healing and forgiveness. This is also a great closing song for Misery Season

For Fans Of
Convictions, August Burns Red, Impending Doom

Bottom Line
Misery Season achieves in just six tracks what many bands strive for in full albums. As Lions and Lambs can please every fan of the extreme music genre with this EP: vehement vocals, fierce music, and mature songwriting. The lyrics get pretty dark sometimes, which may be hard for some listeners. Misery Season is an outstanding metal EP that heavily handles abuse and offers hope and honesty.
