Sweden (2006 – present)

Miseration is a band formed in Sweden in 2006. Their lyrics primarily deal with themes of inner struggles and religious conflict. The band is one out of a collection of collaborations with both Jani Stefanovic and former Scar Symmetry vocalist Christian Älvestam; for example, both also play with Solution .45. Miseration have released three albums to date. Their first album, Your Demons – Their Angels, was released September 20, 2008. Their second album, The Mirroring Shadow was released in 2009, and their third album, Tragedy Has Spoken, in June 2012.

There has been some debate over whether Miseration is a Christian band. “Most of the music and lyrics were written by guitarist Jani Stefanovic (Divinefire, Essence of Sorrow) for a band called Renascent, which he co-founded, then quit early on, taking his songs with him to Miseration. Stefanovic is a big-time Christian, along with everybody else in the band except vocalist Alvestam. So, in deference to the singer’s absence of faith, songwriter Stefanovic toned down what might have otherwise been mega-Christian lyrics to thinly veiled Christian lyrics. But they’re technically in the realm of religio-neutrality. Technically.”

    @DaviFerreira12, all of the members except the lead singer (Christian Älvestam) are Christian and some of their lyrics could be construed to be Christian-esque, but they're not a Christian band. Who cares either way? It's great music.

    The latest album reminds me of Soreption. The sound is very similar, check out Tomb of Tephra for example. Diggin' Stepping Stone Agenda.

    I'm surprised how little attention this band is getting.

    Tragedy > YDTA > Mirroring Shadow. Love all three but Tragedy is just too brutal for me not to love.

    Their first album is definitely melodic. The next is a transition between the two death and melodic death, and the newest is clearly death metal with some outside influences.

    I really like the new album, It feels like they are trying to distance themselves from melodic death metal more, and head more in the direction of Tech Death. I'd say the Mirroring Shadow is their best still, but I like Tragedy Has Spoken.

    Prod on the album is abhorrent, seriously.. Album is okay, just had my first listen through. The Mirroring Shadow destroys the new stuff though.

    Xelias11, I have to agree. It also suffers a bit in production value..

    Tragedy Has Spoken is kinda ok. The Mirroring Shadow is simply superior because it has more memorable songs imo.

    Decent album but kinda weird and not a patch on The Mirroring Shadow. You have to wonder just wtf they were thinking when they wrote this.
