MISTER MISERY is a four piece metal band from the streets of Stockholm, founded in February 2018 by Harley Vendetta & Alex Nine. By blending high energy riffs with anthemic choruses and ripping guitar solos, they have managed not only to create a hype in the underground metal community, but also caught the attention of renowned founder of Nuclear Blast/Arising Empire, Markus Staiger, leading the band to sign a record deal with Arising Empire in 2019. In addition MISTER MISERY has also signed with booking company Contra Promotion, housing bands such as NIGHTWISH, ANTHRAX, THE 69 EYES and many more.
MISTER MISERY just finished their self produced and mixed debut album, »Unalive«, that will shock the world as a first representation of a brand new band. Hungry to light a fire inside the hearts of the restless and broken around the world, MISTER MISERY not only delivers musically but pushes boundaries in their theatrical and chaotic performances. Resurrectingthe wild spirit of the 80’s while also incorporating horror elements and classical composition, MISTER MISERY proves to be a promising virtuous and maniacal newcomer in the alternative metal scene.
Their brand new debut record »Unalive« reflects the emotions and struggles of a journey taken by the four members, including death, jail time, abandonment, drugs and poverty. Through every individual experience they’ve managed to turn that misery into something inspiring, and with that inspiration managed to pull themselves up from the dirt and given life to what they now call MISTER MISERY. The album title itself is inspired by their undead, vampiric look and it’s their way to depict visually what it felt like for them to be metaphorically dead on the inside.
In collaboration with Arising Empire and Contra Promotions,MISTER MISERY will kick-start their career and promote their debut album »Unalive« worldwide on October 4th 2019. The future looks bright for these young metalheads and with a European tour starting October 10th to November 3rd they will end their most successful year so far. “This would not have been possible if not Markus Staiger and the amazing team at Arising Empire and Contra Promotions believed in the band as much as they have. We are all very humbled and excited to start this journey together with the Arising family and all these talented people around us”- says Harley, Alex, Eddie & Rizzy With »Unalive«, MISTER MISERY shows their musical talent and showmanship right from the start of the journey, not holding back on anything. With their catchy choruses, insane writing and guitar composition, with elements from every musical genre known to man, they are starved for stardom and to show the world how metal and rock is still alive and kicking in the 21st century. --- KEEP UPDATED: Mister Misery Website here Mister Misery Facebook here
