Sweden's MISERATION — the collaboration between SCAR SYMMETRY vocalist Christian Älvestam and Jani Stefanovic (ESSENCE OF SORROW, DIVINEFIRE) — will enter Panic Room studios in late June, once again with producer Tomas "Plec" Johansson at the helm, to record the follow-up to the band's debut album, "Your Demons - Their Angels". Entitled "The Mirroring Shadow", the new CD will include "eight to ten songs of hard-hitting, non-compromising death metal," according to Älvestam. A late 2009 release via Lifeforce Records is expected.
MISERATION will embark on a European mini-tour in May with INEVITABLE END. The band will also make an appearance at the Legacy Festival on May 23 in Dessau, Germany.
MISERATION's debut album, "Your Demons, Their Angels", was released in Europe on September 15, 2008 and the U.S. on October 28, 2008.
According to a press release, "Your Demons, Their Angels" "works towards merging the best elements of Swedish melodic death metal with the brutality and technical approach of contemporary U.S. death metal (ala HATE ETERNAL and SUFFOCATION), combined with a forward-thinking edge. While integrating a good dose of melodies and clean singing parts, MISERATION's Lifeforce debut is driven by fast-tempo drumming and a distinctive in-your-face guitar approach that makes you think of the early '90s Swedish metal heroes. MISERATION's style is sophisticated without being too progressive that should appeal to fans of EDGE OF SANITY, BLOODBATH, HYPOCRISY, SOILWORK, or early IN FLAMES. 'Your Demons, Their Angels' is a masterpiece of rigorous heavy riffing and ruthless melodies and an impressive vision of what the future of European death metal should sound like."
