Founded in 1998, MOTHER MISERY released their debut album "Grandiosity" in 2004 and its successor "All Eyes On You" three years later on the well-known underground label Daredevil Records.
After another three years, "Standing Alone" was released as the third and finally "Megalodon" in 2018 as the fourth long-player. In addition to the studio albums, two EPs were also released: "For The Crows" (2006) and "Deadication" in 2018.
The all-round fit Swedish foursome from Enköping also have a lot to show live, having already shared the stages of this world with well-established genre institutions such as Entombed, Queensrÿche, Lynch Mob, Sepultura, Life Of Agony, Deathstars, The Quireboys and Evergrey, and have received good reviews from the fans in attendance across the board.
This consistent band can also boast festival experience, having performed at the Dutch Zwarte Cross Festival, for example, which was attended by more than 150,000 people.
On December 15th, album number five, "From Shadow To Ghost", will be released via Doc Gator Records, this time exclusively on vinyl, which will be available in three different colors and in the best proven Doc Gator quality.
About the thematic focus, singer and guitarist John Hermansen informs as follows:
"Well, I've never thought of or tried to make a 'theme album' before, but when I look at the lyrics of 'From Shadow To Ghost', I see a pattern and a little red line running through all the songs that I didn't even recognize at first. Basically, it's about how we treat each other, how we shape the world and what we leave our children."
After Black, Thrash and Power Metal, Doc Gator Records have now added MOTHER MISERY, a Swedish earworm factory to their label catalog that will delight all fans of gritty Hard Rock, hard grooves, energetic and earthy vocals and catchy melodies with their very special "Supersonic Rock".
The label is deeply convinced that the holidays have never had such a classy soundtrack as 2023 with the Swedish Supersonic Rockers of MOTHER MISERY and the ten enormously varied song thrillers that they benevolently put under the hungry Christmas tree with "From Shadow To Ghost"!
Alright, get ready to (Supersonic) Rock around the Christmas Tree!
