Miseration have revealed another new song entitled “On Wings Of Brimstone” taken from their upcoming third album Tragedy Has Spoken, which can be found below. The theme of these Scandinavians’ third album can be described as the sum of the major tragedies of mankind’s history. Lyrics for Tragedy Has Spoken were written by Pär Johansson (Satariel, Torchbearer, The Few Against Many) and band’s lead singer Christian Älvestam (also in Solution.45, Torchbearer), and address the diversity of tragedies. Some of which have taken the guise of accidents or natural disasters, while others were carried out with human hands and intent. Behind all this there is to find an imaginary architect, a fictive entity – something powerful, aware, far above the manmade concepts of good or evil: the nature of tragedy itself.

Miseration is a Swedish death metal band that’s been around since 2006. Tragedy Has Spoken, their third album to date, gives you pretty much what you would expect from a Swedish death metal release – lots of melodic parts, lots of catchy brutality and even a bit of (gasp!) clean singing thrown in for good measure. The group also ventures into some technical death metal on songs such as “White Light/Black Rain”. Not a hell of a lot of originality here, but the guys do what they do quite well. Anyone into Swedish death needs to take a listen here see what they’re missing.

Theory tells that tragedy is a form of drama based on human suffering that invokes in its audience an accompanying catharsis or pleasure in listening. Miseration’s newest album Tragedy Has Spoken follows this path musically and lyrically. The theme of the third album of these Scandinavians can be described as sum of the major tragedies of mankind’s history. Lyrics for “Tragedy Has Spoken” have been written by Pär Johansson (Satariel, Torchbearer, The Few Against Many) and band’s lead singer Christian Älvestam (also in Solution .45, Torchbearer, ex-Scar Symmetry), and address the diversity of tragedies. Some of which have taken the guise of accidents or natural disasters, while others were carried out with human hands and intent.
