Meshing the brutality of hardcore, and the intensity of Thrash, Misunderstood helps to usher in a new age of metal. While some Bands are doomed to forever play in the same old box, these boys rip their box apart like a rabid pit bull in search of fresh meat.

Biography

MISUNDERSTOOD IS A FOUR PIECE HARDCORE METAL BAND FROM THE SOUTH SIDE OF CHICAGO. FORMED IN LATE 2002, MISUNDERSTOOD HAS STAYED ALMOST UNNOTICED ONLY PLAYING A FEW SHOWS HERE AND THERE INTENTIONALLY THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. DURING THAT TIME THEY WERE SEARCHING FOR THE RIGHT PEOPLE TO COMPLETE THIS BAND. NOW, WITH THE LINEUP SET AND FOUR SOLID MEMBERS, MISUNDERSTOOD HAS BEEN LAYING LOW PERFECTING THEIR SONGS AND CREATING A BOND WITH EACH OTHER THAT IS STRONGER THAN MOST. THE SONGS THEY WRITE ARE VERY SIMPLE AND STRAIGHT FOWARD, NO B.S., NO BEATING AROUND THE BUSH. SONGS LIKE DECIEVER AND RIVAL, WHICH ARE ABOUT BETRAYAL AND BROKEN FRIENDSHIPS, ARE PERFECT EXAMPLES OF THIS. THE WORDS ARE VERY TRUTHFULL AND BRUTALLY HONEST. HEAVY, AGGRESSIVE RIFFS AND VOCALS THAT SLAM YOU IN THE FACE ARE WHAT THIS BAND IS ALL ABOUT. THEY RELEASED A FOUR SONG DEMO AT THE END OF THIS SUMMER AND HAVE RECEIVED NOTHING BUT POSITIVE RESPONSES FROM PEOPLE ALL OVER CHICAGO. WITHOUT ANY SHOWS AND ONLY A FOUR SONG DEMO, MISUNDERSTOOD HAS CREATED A LOCAL BUZZ AND ALREADY HAS A SOLID FAN BASE. WITH VOCALS AND MUSIC BEING COMPARED TO SOME OF THE BETTER BANDS IN METAL TODAY (HATEBREED AND GODSMACK), MISUNDERSTOOD IS READY TO BRING THEIR AGGRESSIVNESS TO THE STAGE AND TO THE PEOPLE.

Lyrics

Rival

Written By: Misunderstood

AT A TIME LONG AGO WE WERE FRIENDS NEVER FOES. ALL THE SHIT THAT WE DID WAS ALL FOR NOTHING. NOW THAT YOUR GONE I CAN SEE THAT YOU DIDN'T MEAN SHIT TO ME. I LOOK BACK AT THE TIMES AND WISH THEY WERE THE SAME. I LOOK AGAIN AND REALIZE IT WAS FAKE. (chorus- WE BOTH FELL APART I DON'T KNOW WHY. ONLY THINK OF YOURSELF IT'S THE LAST TIME. THE BLOOD INSIDE MY VEINS IS FROZE. KEEP IT TO MYSELF SO NO ONE KNOWS. IT'S ALL FLIPPED AROUND TO THE OTHER SIDE. I WON'T BE THERE TO HEAR YOUR CRIES. I'M SICK OF PLAYING LITTLE GAMES. I WOULDN'T PUT YOU OUT IF YOUR IN FLAMES.) ALL THE TIMES I WAS DOWN YOU WERE THERE BY MY SIDE. UP UNTILL YOU TOOK A PILL NOW YOUR DYING. I CAN'T BELEIVE ALL THE SHIT THAT YOU GOT ME INTO. AND THEN I LOOK AT YOU. IT MAKES ME SICK TO THINK IT'S TRUE. THAT YOU'VE BECOME WHO YOU TRULLY ARE.(chorus) I HATE YOU FOR THE THINGS YOU DO. I KNOW WHY YOU TURNED YOUR BACK ON ME. I DON'T THINK YOU UNDERSTOOD ME. I WAS JUST BEING A FRIEND. YOUR A BITCH. FUCK YOU. I'M JUST GETTING SICK OF YOU. TRY TO TAKE ALL MY FRIENDS I JUST FUCKING LAUGH AT YOU. IT TOOK SOME TIME BUT MY LIFE IS BETTER OFF WITHOUT YOU. THE THINGS I NEVER SAID I WILL NOW SAY TO YOU. FUCK YOU, YOU BITCH. I HOPE YOU NEVER ASK WHY. WE BROKE IN TWO. THERES NOTHING LEFT FOR ME AND YOU.

DECEIVER

Written By: Misunderstood

TRAGICALLY TORN AWAY FROM EVERYTHING YOU MAKE ME GO INSANE. MYSTICALLY YOU DECAY, I SMASH MY FACE AND YET I FEEL NO PAIN. AND NOW EVERYDAY, THE SAME, THIS SO CALLED LIFE IS JUST A FUCKED UP GAME. WE ALL KNOW THE TRUTH. WE ALL KNOW THE REAL YOU. THIS TIME I WON'T TAKE ANYMORE OF YOUR SHIT. I QUIT. COMING TO THE POINT, I BREAK. DECEIVER. THIS TIME I WILL MAKE THE ENDING TO THIS STORY MINE. IT TOOK A LONG TIME BUT I FOUND OUT THAT YOUR NOTHING BUT A LIE. JUST WANNA LET YOU KNOW THAT WE CAN SEE RIGHT THRU YOU.(chorus- THIS IS A SHATTERD GLASS IT CAN NEVER BE REASSEMBLED. YOUR RUNNING AWAY FROM THE REAL YOU BUT WE WILL NOT BE DECEIVED. I'M FED UP WITH YOUR TORMENT, FUCK YOU. I'M FIGHTING TILL YOU LEAVE. GET IN MY FACE AGAIN I PROMISE YOU THAT YOUR GOING TO BLEED.) THIS TIME THERE MIGHT BE A FLATLINE LEAVING REALITY. I'M NOT GONNA TAKE YOUR SHIT I'M DONE. DECEIVER. THIS TIME I WON'T STOP AND THINK IF I'M MISTAKEN. COME AROUND AGAIN AND IT'S YOUR FACE I WILL BE BREAKING. JUST WANNA LET YOU KNOW THAT WE CAN SEE RIGHT THRU YOU.(chorus) YOUR SOUL IS DARK AS THE SHADOWS. YOUR HEART IS SMALL WE ALL CAN SEE. YOUR FACE IS NOTHING BUT BULLSHIT NOTHING THAT I EVER CAN BELEIVE. I MUST STAND UP FOR MYSELF. WON'T BACK DOWN, WON'T FALL IN YOUR GAME. YOU WON'T GET THE BEST OF ME. WHAT YOU DID WAS PLAIN AND SIMPLE WENT AHEAD AND MADE THINGS DIFFICULT, ON A BINGE FOR YOUR COCAINE, EASE YOUR PAIN, ALWAYS TAKING FOR GRANTED OUR FREINDSHIP. ALL THE BILLS THAT YOU HAVN'T PAID. I WILL NOT BE YOUR SLAVE. I'M THE ONE YOU DESPISE, I'M YOUR TEARS I'M YOUR CRIES, I'M THE BLOOD, I'M THE STAIN, THE KNIFE CUTTING YOUR VEINS, IN MY MIND YOU WILL FIND ALL THE ANGER INSIDE, NOW YOUR FEELING MY PAIN, I WON'T TAKE IT AWAY. DECEIVER.

BRING ME DOWN

Written By: Misunderstood

THE TIMES, THE TIMES, THE TIMES THAT YOU TOLD ME. THAT I, THAT I, WILL NEVER BE ANYTHING. THIS TIME, THIS TIME, ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING HAS WENT MY WAY, HAS WENT MY WAY. THE BULLSHIT THE CRISES THE TIMES THAT YOU TOLD ME THAT NOBODY WOULD LIKE US. THE BULLSHIT THE CRISES THE TIMES THAT YOU TOLD ME THAT NOBODY WOULD UNDERSTAND. YOU WILL TRY, AND WILL FAIL, YOU CANNOT, BRING ME DOWN. ALWAYS, YOUR ALWAYS, YOUR ALWAYS THINKING YOUR BETTER, YOUR BETTER, YOUR BETTER THAN ME AT EVERYTHING. THIS TIME, THIS TIME, ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING HAS WENT MY WAY, HAS WENT MY WAY. THE BULLSHIT THE CRISES THE TIMES THAT YOU TOLD ME THAT NOBODY WOULD LIKE US. THE BULLSHIT THE CRISES THE TIMES THAT YOU TOLD ME THAT NOBODY WOULD UNDERSTAND. (chorus)HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL. HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT THE DREAMS I HAVE WILL SOON BE REAL. HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FUCKING FEEL. DOWN. (chorus)
