Mister Misery - A Brighter Side Of Death (Album Review)
Swedish alternative horror metal band Mister Misery released their new album "A Brighter Side Of Death" a couple days ago. I've been really looking forward to this one and it definitely did not disappoint. It starts off with the single "The Ballad Of The Headless Horseman", which was the first single they put out from this album way back in December, and it was also my introduction to the band. It was enough to have me hooked, so it's definitely good. As the album goes on, it gets more brutal for awhile. "Burn" is a particularly heavy hitter, which I absolutely love. "I'll Never Be Yours" has a fantastic guitar solo. "Under The Moonlight" was a rather different song, it sounds like horror core vocals with heavy riffs. "Clown Prince From Hell" starts off with creepy carnival music, before jumping into one of the heaviest songs on the album, it's so good! In some ways it really reminds me of a Rob Zombie song, the way the chorus is chanted with a much deeper type vocals and there's random bits of dialogue used in it. "Home" had a very 80's glam metal type vibe to it, and is not as heavy than a lot of the rest of the album. The final track is an orchestral version of the first track, "Ballad Of The Headless Horseman". It's absolutely beautifully done, and I absolutely love it. This album is so good! I enjoyed it a lot! I definitely recommend checking it out. ~Gangis
