Miserium / Bio

We are playing progressive metal with hint of dark atmosphere, a touch of Gothenburg death metal riffing, some tainted with hard rock, funky, baroque and reggae influences - all there to create a diverse, unique musical landscape and strong support of our lyrics.

We are creating music for the sake of music - we are determined to create and play the sort of things we like to listen to. We also aim to entertain and to provide the experience of something fresh and something enjoyable for those who listen to our songs, no matter if they do it on our gigs or through our records. We try to stray far from the current trends in progressive metal, we aim to deliver beauty and essence to our listeners.

Members and background
Szabi got his degree as a guitarist, Álmos as tubist, Peti as a percussionist, all of them at the Liszt Academy of Music. Zsolt attended a college of music and currently working with Peti at the Zugló Philharmonia – Szent István Király Symphony Orchestra and Oratorio Choir.
The members are actively participating in the Hungarian musical life in other genres as well, may it be alternative punk rock, rock & roll, crossover, electronic music, musical or classical performances.

The idea of forming the band dates back to around 2003 when Álmos decided to assemble musicians to embody his musical vision. Many years had to pass before the band achieved it's current form both member-wise and musically in 2009 and recorded a five track demo at home and a two track promo in the Denevér Studio. By this time the band already had enough songs completely written to fill a full-length, however, while we were learning the songs, we've made countless improvements and modifications. We also had to deal with the lyrics - Szabi had a concept behind the songs based on the idea of Platonic realism which was given form by Attila, a friend of the band.

Personal, musical and financial reasons caused numerous delays in recording and releasing our first full-length, Return to Grace which has finally been recorded and mastered late 2012 and finished in January, 2013.
