If you are into fast and aggressive metal with an authentic and pure
vibe “The Mirroring Shadow” will blow you away. MISERATION take no
prisoners by combining the best elements of brutal, technical death
metal ala SUFFOCATION, HATE ETERNAL and PSYCROPTIC while paying homage
to Scandinavian death metal in the vein of BLOODBATH and old ENTOMBED.
Former SCAR SYMMETRY vocalist Christian Älvestam and guitarist Jani
Stefanovic (ESSENCE OF SORROW / THE WEAKENING), who started the band
together, have the experience and abilities to create a harsh,
uncompromising style of metal people will undoubtedly notice.
Following their critically acclaimed 2008 debut album “Your Demons,
Their Angels”, MISERATION are more focused on the brutal side of death
metal. There are still strong hook-lines and a lot of melodic riffs,
but “The Mirroring Shadow” is driven by a vicious and extreme attitude
and untamed aggression. This is the sound Sweden became known for in
the early 90’s and MISERATION fully know about their responsibilities
in upholding the true nature of that sound. MISERATION’s second album
proves that they have the foresight for creating new and brutal metal
while being aware of metal’s fine traditions at the same time. This is
not only what contemporary death metal should sound like but the future
of death metal in total.
