Arising Empire are proud to announce the worldwide signing of Sweden’s metal quartet MISTER MISERY. Welcome to the Family!
MISTER MISERY just finished their self-produced debut album, ‘Unalive’, that will shock the world as the 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. Resurrecting the 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.
Today MISTER MISERY release their brand new single ‘My Ghost’ and launch the pre-orders for their upcoming full-length debut record ‘Unalive’, which will be available on the 4th of October 2019 via Arising Empire!

We have fought hard to get to this point and with AE’s and Contra’s help, we now feel unstoppable! It’s hard to find words as to how excited we are since this is something we have all dreamt of since we were kids! A dream has come true!”
Markus Staiger (CEO Arising Empire): “MISTER MISERY from Sweden soon come up with their amazing debut album which could be described as a mixture of glam rock, metal and a touch of gothic!MARILYN MANSON fans, as well as all other heavy rockers, should watch out and check the first clip ‘My Ghost’- a phenomenal video production by Patric Ullaeus (THE 69 EYES, DIMMU BORGIR, WITHIN TEMPTATION, ARCH ENEMY etc) This young band from Stockholm will kill it, it has been a long time ago where I was so excited about a brand-new band!”
Contra Promotion: “We are very happy to welcome such a talented new metal band as MISTER MISERY to our artist roster. The voice, combined with the songwriting and look of the band make MISTER MISERY an act with a very unique identity, which sets them apart from other acts in the genre. This convinced us to work with MISTER MISERY and we are sure that this band has a bright future ahead of them.“
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 to not only to create hype within 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.
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 give life to what they now call MISTER MISERY. The album title itself is inspired by their undead, vampiric look, depicting 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 Markus Staiger and the amazing team at Arising Empire and Contra Promotions had not 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.
