Mother Misery: Standing Alone

Hi sonic, Hi energy Anthemic Rock n Roll music courtesy of Swedish rock miesters Mother Misery. The band has managed to produce eleven catchy hook laden tunes that reel you in from beginning to the end. They aren't unique by any stretch of the imagination, the band have been heavily influenced by the likes of Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and numerous Swedish bands of the same design, Backyard Babies is one that springs to mind.

With the opening gambit of "Dirty Little Secrets" "You've got your dirty little secrets in the back of your head" the band set their stalls out firmly, taking no prisoners along the way. This is definitely a four piece that means business, Thomas Peel' guitar work is fashionably exciting pressing all the right buttons featuring some nice lead breaks intertwined with some strong rhythmic passage work, whilst Stiff Hell and Jimmy Lindbergh really reinforce that back line with their strong and metallic punctuations, which is all complemented by John Hermansen' vocal workout, the buzz factor in the band.

This maybe generic heavy rock but it has been created with loving care with the band spending time and thought in their compositional process with the outstanding tracks for my money being, "Dirty Little Secrets", "This Is What I Am", "Eyes Of The Moth" the riotous "To Hell" or the stunning album closer "State Of Grace".
