Another band currently hard at work on their forthcoming album, MISERATION, have just released a new video for ‘Dreamdecipher’, tune taken from their 2009-release, ‘The Mirroring Shadow’. MISERATION's third release, about to be recorded at MT Studios in Trollhättan, Sweden, with producer Marko Tervonen (THE CROWN), will introduce new drummer Oscar Nilsson. The above video was directed by Markus Rytilahti / Ekman & Winroth.
Formed by then SCAR SYMMETRY vocalist Christian Älvestam and SOLUTION .45's, DIVINEFIRE's etc Jani Stefanovic in 2006, MISERATION released their debut album, ‘Your Demons – Their Angels’, in 2007. The album was reissued by German label Lifeforce Records in 2008 to much critical acclaim:
“Instrumentally speaking, MISERATION's ever-shifting compositions lie somewhere betwixt the highly technical American/Canadian school of death metal and the slightly less oppressive and melodic Swedish scene - with orchestrated synth backdrops further enriching a few tracks like ‘The End Designed’ and the stupendously violent ‘Seven Are The Souls’. And yet perhaps the most amazing thing about the album's impressive musical achievement is the fact that all instruments, save for those synths, were performed by Älvestam's collaborator-in-crime, Jani Stefanovic - that and the rumors that the pair have Christian leanings amid all of this wholesale sonic Armageddon. Confused? Don’t be; just a little bit of faith - religious or otherwise - is all one needs to see and hear MISERATION's fascinating metallic onslaught revealed in all of its beautifully grotesque glory,” [commented Eduardo Rivadavia, AllMusic – more here]
With drummer Rolf Pilve, bassist Johan Ylenstrand and guitarist Marcus Bertilsson, the pair recorded their sophomore effort ‘The Mirroring Shadow’, released on Lifeforce Records in 2009.
MISERATION features: Christian Älvestam – vocals, Marcus “Skägget” Bertilsson – guitar, Jani Stefanovic – guitar and Oscar Nilsson - drums
