After the successful release of their debut album »Unalive«,including the songs ‘My Ghost’, ‘The Blood Waltz’, ‘Alive’ and ‘Tell Me How’, MISTER MISERY from Stockholm, Swedenreleased new material for their fans – keeping the flame alive in these extraordinary times!
MISTER MISERY: „In these strange times, we wanna do what we can to keep the flame (un)alive in our fans!
That’s why we decided to release an older, unreleased song from the Unalive era that didn’t make the album.
“Strangeland” is about a dark, horrifying world with all the scary goodies and nightmares to keep you entertained throughout this pandemic.
We’re thrilled to release something new to all of our ghosts out there, so let’s head to Strangeland, shall we?“
The band released their debut record »Unalive« via Arising Empire in October last year.

“Welcome to the new shock horror rock and metal generation.” – Rock Tribune
“A killer gothic circus show performing a soundtrack between Metalcore and Visual Kei. This mixture has never been heard or seen before!” – METAL HAMMER
“Here comes the new alternative metal sensation from Sweden! Horror and theatrical melodies in a mix between early Avenged Sevenfold and Wednesday 13.” – Rock Hard IT
“A super energetic album filled with very catchy, steaming songs that I won’t be able to get out of my system in the coming months.” – AARDSCHOK
“This is how I actually imagine a newcomer band in 2019.” – Hardline
“Once in a while a composition comes along that immediately grabs you. That happened to me in recent months with ‘My Ghost’ by Mister Misery. Is it the melody? Or the tempo? It’s a bit indescribable why ‘My Ghost’ made such an impression on me, but fact is, I can’t get enough of it. Musically you can feel the influence of eighties rock. A bit of Joan Jett and a bit of Def Leppard, but mega-strong. Mister Misery released one of the best debutalbums this year.” – Rock Portaal
“The melodies are carving their way unstoppably into the auditive ear tunnels and so there is one hit following the other. That’s what entertainment on a top-notch level looks and sounds like!” – Legacy
“I think Mister Misery, if the forces of evil are on their side, will sink their teeth into the bloody prize they so seek.” – All about the Rock UK
“Every track of “Unalive” will haunt your head for a long time to come! Newcomer of the month!” – ORKUS! Magazine
“They’re going to take the scene by storm with “Unalive”.” – Sonic Seducer

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.
