Forced To Suffer By Sean Mahoney
MISRULE is a dissonant death-grind band from Portland, OR consisting of Sean Mahoney, Carter Higbee, and Daniel Faulkner. Our latest release “Forced to Suffer” is something I (Sean Mahoney) had been working on for some time before it’s release. The album was written over the course of 2017 and recorded by me in the winter of that year, then released on tape in early 2018 through Sentient Ruin. Lyrically, it focuses on topics like depression, isolation, veganism and anger towards the mistreatment of all living beings.
The songwriting process was a long one. A few of these songs started off as ideas for my previous band when I lived in New Hampshire. There were complications between band members and things ended up not working out for me there, so I finished writing the songs and released them as Misrule when I moved to Portland in late 2017. I recorded the album myself also, so there were a number of impediments that stood in my way. The album went through many different mixes and had been recorded probably 5 times over before I was satisfied with the results. Now, Misrule is a full band and we are currently writing a full length that I am very excited to finish.
