MISERATION Completes Work On Sophomore Album

Sweden's MISERATION — the collaboration between SCAR SYMMETRY vocalist Christian Älvestam and Jani Stefanovic (ESSENCE OF SORROW, DIVINEFIRE) — has completed work on its sophomore album, "The Mirroring Shadow", for a November 16 release in Europe and January 19 in North America via Lifeforce Records. The follow-up to "Your Demons - Their Angels" was recorded at Panic Room studios with producer Tomas "Plec" Johansson.

Commented the band: "After a few months of intense work, we are happy to announce that our new album, 'The Mirroring Shadow', is now finally recorded and done. We are really proud of what we have accomplished this time and we can't wait to share this newborn baby with you all! Musically, it's definitely a step up, intensity- and aggression-wise; also being more technical than its predecessor. Even so, there are still a lot of melodic landscapes there to explore. Put together, this progression both came and felt very natural to us, once the new material started to take shape. Sound-wise, producer Tomas 'Plec' Johansson has really outdone himself on this one, giving the music a productional enviroment to die for! Crushingly pounding, yet crystal clear! A big thanks also to Stefan and Lifeforce Records for being patient, understanding and for backing us up in the hour of need! It will not be forgotten! Last, but not least, hats off to Pär Johansson for his brilliant lyrical contribution and to Pär Olofsson for an album artwork worthy of praise. Your exquisite work made all the difference! In all, we are very proud and happy with the outcome of our efforts, that is 'The Mirroring Shadow'!"
