mmmmm,can you say 'machine head' hehe only joking!but you have to admit there is an influence there,np prob,my stuff sounds like fear factory(after 48 pints of larger)must admit coloured had me jumping over the sofa,god seems to get around a bit doesnt he?looks like hes playing drums for you guys now.at first i didnt dig the vocals much but they started to grow on me until i thought,yes,it sounds right,one word to describe you lads-ANGRY,some one pissed you off but im glad cos the result is outstanding.the good thing about these songs is that the attitude to the riffs is 'mmmm yeah,i like playing this riff,im gonna play another one now-change is important in this kind of music because there are so many bands out there with a simular sound that play one or two riffs in each song and think'fuck it,i like the riffs so we will build around it' but you lads go for gold with many difference styles of playing,different tempos but at the same time do not get boring or repetative like my stuff.nice one lads 10 out of 10
Good stuff man. Kinda reminds me of old Anthrax! Most of your music might-to the undicerning ear-sound alike. But no worries, sometimes consistancy is what you're going for, or it could be the songs that are posted are just dated...I really dig 'in the east'. Strong vocals, and the drummer has to be on the purist form of crack ever distilled and smoked. Footnote: The singer here sometimes sounds like [i]my[i/] old singer for a band I was in many many moons ago...cool!
fat sweaty elvis
Firstly, I'm sorry guys for not reviewing you any sooner, mainly because i've been fucked over by the fleu, any-way back to the review of Coloured.
I think the tribal intro is awesome, it adds alot of depth to the song, the guitar sound is crushing and the whole damn recording is at a excellent quality. I admire the drummers foot-work through-out the song (very impressive). But my favourite part in the whole song is the pre-chorus Stomp-Fest, that is fuckin insanity. It is also a bonus to hear a song-writer writing about shit he has to put up with, the lyrics ''and you've got the fuckin nerve to call me coloured, remember, white's a colour two, is just amazing. In my opinion you have had a lot of inspiration from Downset and Earth Crisis. MISBEGOTTEN, keep writing, the future prove that all this work is worth-it.
Ok, so this is what I wish Korn or Limp Bizkit sounded more like. In my honest opinion this band has more talent and isnt trying quite as hard (Korn and Limp fans keep your hate mail, I like them 2!!!)
I really like the singers voice, and there is great musicianship here. Definetely adrenaline boosting music that also will make you think.....No complaints here, excelent work...now with that rush of energy, Im goin to the gym ;-)
SAINT - GOD OF GOTH
A lengthy song which has some diverse twists and an intriguing
composition. The best about this song is the amount of different
approaches (even genres) put together into the song. Although I have
to admit it is not as catchy as your best song, "Still Children for
Sale", I just HAVE to admire the differences and diversity between
the different parts of the song. It is excellent when a band does
something that attempts to push the limits of a genre, or rather
smash them to little pieces. Is there one, or more singers in the
band? If there is just one, I have to admire his voice. He has the
most excellent power metal voice, then a psychedelic kind of singing,
and in the end both death metal growls and thrash-like hard singing.
Review (Coloured) :
This song absolutely kicks. The song writing is great, the performance is great and most importantly once you hear Coloured you feel it. While much of the metal acts spend more time on image than substance Misbegotten creates music that is both immediate and complex. It is rare to see this in any style of music. I probably have played Coloured 20 times and keep digging it more with each listen. Check this out.
" Double Pedal!!
I'm a drummer who secretly wishes to have quick feet like in this song. Like the deeper/angrier lyric section."

Still Children for Sale
MOD with melody! Who would've thought... nice shifting between the
thrashing and the steady slam groove... well produced, strong piece - lyrics
compelling - good stuff!
7.75 / 10
My Best Friend's Name is Vokuhila
Nice movement here - These guys certainly have a handle on their hardcore
the rap was an interesting twist... how very Anthrax of you :) - OLD SCHOOL
FOREVER! Strong piece, well done!
8.25 / 10
This is way off the track from what I've been hearing - total groove driven
heavy, heavy, heavy! Tasteful use of wah - the big explosion - back to that
familiar Anthrax methodology... this brings back so many memories! BRUTAL!
8 / 10
Modern? Not really... Slammin'? Without a doubt! If you grew up listening to
hardcore, as I did, this is right up your alley! If not, listen to 'em
the performance is tight, and the arranging is potent. Definitely worth the
bucks they're asking for the CD!
Hey - don't take my word for it - take a listen
Hey thanks for replying to the bb topic here at mp3.com. "Looking for hard music bands!". I just downloaded 2 of your songs "Still Children for sale" and "Perfect World" great stuff!, you guys remind me of a Canadian band that we used to play alot with called The Mad, they broke up years ago, but they were very original and could have gone far if they could have kept it together! So keep it togther guys! anyways i'm adding now a link to your mp3.com page at our page as well as at our official site. Also i will include it in our monthly newsletter that goes out to over 300 hard music fans!
Hope you can add a link back to us.

THIS OPERA THING IN THE BEGINING BUT THINK IT GETS IN THE WAY ONCE THE MUSIC REALLY COMES IN.THERES A REALLY GOOD CUT OFF POINTE FOR IT AT ABOUT 0:40 WHEN EVERY BODY COMES IN.ITS JUST KINDA DISTRACTING AFTER THIS.THERE IS DEFINTLY ALOT OF DIFFERNT TYPES OF THRASHING GOING ON IN THIS ONE EXCEPT FOR THE BIT OF BLUSY INTRO.FIRST BUSTS INTO SOME FEAR FACTORY TYPE MECHANICAL CHOPING.THEN BREAKS INTO SOME OLD MOD MOSHING TYPE SHIT.THEN INTO SOME OLD 80S TYPE HEAVY METAL.THE DRUMERS KICK WORK IS QUIK AND PUNCHY.SOME NICES CRUNCH TONED GUITARS AND SOME GROWLING VOCAL WORK = SOME RADICAL SHIT!
OVERALL THIS ONE IS A ROCKER.ITS PRETTY COOL HOW YOU BLENDED ALL THE DIFFERNT TYPES OF CHOPING.COOL TUNE.
Heavy Metal review by Bruce Satinover
>From the beginning distorted sample to the opening slide guitars it's clear this is one good band. Misbegotten integrates metal, punk and some electronic aspects into "Coloured." The playing is extremely tight and the vocals are strong.
The production is excellent, the playing is great and the lyrics have relevance without smacking you over the head. There's going to be comparisons to "Living Colour," but you'd have to also factor in Punk bands like "Fugazi," or "Fishbone," as well. Personally, I think this is fresher sounding and more versatile than anything those two bands recorded.
Keep an open mind, this is going to be a band to reckon with.
YOU GUYS KICK ASS!!!
Just heard "My best friends name is..." Excellent stuff if I do say so myself. I hail all the way from stateside in Randallstown, MD (east coast) and I'm a project studio Mayhem Metaller who is on the quest for the perfect chop. I will recomend you to all my friends who need a release! Hail mp3!

MISBEGOTTEN: Perfect World
MISBEGOTTEN aus Österreich stellen sich auf ihrer 1997 produzierten ersten Fulltime-CD "Perfect World" der Hardcore/Metal-Gemeinde vor. Gegründet wurde die Band im Mai 1993. Seit dem haben MISBEGOTTEN eine erste Maxi-CD und diverse Samplerbeiträge veröffentlicht, sowie sich als Liveband (u.a. bei Auftritten im Wiener Rockhaus, auf dem Wiener Praterfest vor ca. 3000 Leuten oder als Support von OBITUARY in Salzburg) einen Namen gemacht. Derzeit arbeitet die Band an neuem Material und spielte zuletzt mit Bands wie PRO PAIN, GRIP INC. Oder KEILERKOPF live. Nun aber zur CD "Perfect World".
An den oben erwähnten Bands zeichnet sich bereits ungefähr die musikalische Richtung ab. MISBEGOTTEN spielen eine gelungene Hardcore/Metal-Mixtur, mal straight und schnell ("In The East"), mal verspielter ("I´ve Heard The Word MF..."), aber immer mit dem gewissen etwas, um sich vom durchschnitts-Hardcore-Klischee abzuheben. Dazu trägt besonders Sänger Gerhard Resinger bei, der sich auch bei melodiösen Gesangsparts nicht zu verstecken braucht. Und Lieder wie "My Best Friends Name Is Vokuhila" lassen jedenfalls auf eine gute Portion Humor schließen.
Die Songs schwanken allerdings etwas, dem Gros an gut ausgearbeiteten Songs steht z.B. "A New Friend" gegenüber, das doch aus einer frühen Schaffensperiode zu stammen scheint und recht simpel daher kommt. Dies stellt allerdings die Ausnahme auf "Perfect World" dar.
Insgesamt ist "Perfect World" eine abwechslungsreiche Scheibe für Hardcore/Metal-Fans. Eigenständige, abwechslungsreiche Songs machen die CD zu einer durchaus kurzweiligen Angelegenheit.

I just discovered Austrian metalists Misbegotten. Their song "A New Friend" speaks of the dangers of alcohol underscored by a thundering double-pedal drum assault. Operatic baritone vocals and chainsaw guitars are their hallmark.
>From what I've heard so far, Misbegotten seem to focus mostly on serious political issues (In the East), and social issues like racism (Coloured). Although they lighten the tone a bit with "I've Heard the Word Motherf*cker But I Don't Know What It Means" (available on MusicBuilder.com).
The band is very tight and the musicianship and recording are top notch.
Highly recommended for metalheads everywhere.

TOTAL RATING: $3.67 out of $5
Well Dollar Man may have just stumbled upon the most socially relevant Indie band on the net! These guys have an important message to deliver, and deliver it they do; with a flaming sledgehammer to the side of your head.
The message? It doesn't matter if you are green or blue, a moron is a moron and that doesn't depend on your skin color! Dollar Man has to admit he has been looking at a lot of green people passing on the street recently and thinking to himself, "you bottom dwelling, refuse covered, spotty bottomed moron!" And it did raise the possibility that Dollar Man was becoming a bigot. But fear not my friends! Misbegotten has set the record straight, and a moron is a moron whatever! (Sigh of relief)
Dollar Man suspects this song may have been written for the sole purpose of impressing him. It has almost everything Dollar Man loves; heavy distortion, incomprehensible yelling, double kick pedal on the drums etc. These guys should replace their singer with a chick and move to Canada (they currently live in Austria) and they'd have it made!
So let's all raise our glasses to misbegotten! And let us hope that Britney Spears soon wanders, late at night, down a dark Austrian alley where these guys are liquoring up!
The greatest Austrian metal Dollar Man has heard to date! Bar none!

you guys are really great.
'Perfect World' is also a superb song; it seems an appropriately
tongue-in-chic title/subject judging by your album cover. How would you
feel about using that song? do you have any lyrics to perfect world?

Misbegotten--"I've heard the word m o therf u ck e r " --You guys KICK ASS!! If anyone here wants to hear some hardcore stuff with awesome musicians behind it, this is it!! This song makes me want to go straight to the mosh pit-- Reminds me of old Suicidal Tendencies, Testament, Motorhead, definitely influenced by some of the early British heavy bands in the 80s (I didn't say they were ALL bad!) And then you put that heavy reggae part in the middle--your drummer is unreal. I will check your other stuff out later--

I listened to In The East...truthfully, I have to tell you that this is harder than what I usually listen to, but you guys are good! Nice and tight. I'll tell you what I picked up on...the guitar and bass work is great! I also liked hearing the newsclips mixed in. I like off-the-wall creative stuff like that, and I recognized Walter Cronkite's voice in an instant. You guys defintely have what it takes to crank 'em out!
Hey you guys, welcome aboard! Just listened to "Coloured," really excellent. Reminds me of Prong in some ways, but you guys definitely have your own sound. Very tight, very heavy, very creative. And personally, I like the yelling and screaming just fine. And your drummer is amazing. Love the machine gun guitars too, and the crazy change at the end is a fun surprise. I'll be downloading the rest of your tunes, for sure.
