The Skinny: Metal/rock outfit This Misery Garden are streaming their new record, Cornerstone in it’s entirety via Bandcamp – listen below. Switzerland’s This Misery Garden capture the dual nature of their home country on their second full-length Cornerstone.

The face of This Misery Garden is melancholy that reminds of early Katatonia and speaks to isolation and despair. That darkness is wrapped in tight, measured, melodic hard rock reminiscient of meta-rock bands a la Tool. Produced and mixed by Drop (Sybreed), and mastered by Jens Bogren (Katatonia, Opeth, Paradise Lost) in the prestigious Fascination Street Studio.


Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
