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.
