Icelandic wrecking crew, UNE MISÈRE, are set to unleash their full-length debut, SERMON, upon the world on November 1st, 2019 via Nuclear Blast Records. Today, the band discusses how they were introduced to music and their experiences with the Icelandic music scene, which has its limitations or ‘roof’ due to Iceland having a limited population and being secluded from the rest of the world. Watch as the band detail how this environment motivates them to want to be the best they can so they can so they bring their music to new territories, here: youtu.be/9gdceLaBJHI
Watch the official video for the first single ‘SERMON’: youtu.be/5Ox7sCuQftY
SERMON track listing:
- SIN & GUILT
- OVERLOOKED // DISREGARDED
- BURDENED // SUFFERING
- FALLEN EYES
SERMON was produced and mixed by Sky van Hoff (EMIGRATE, RAMMSTEIN, etc) with mastering completed by Svante Forsbäck. The album was engineered by Marco Bayatl, Sky Van Hoff and Marco Kollenz. The album artwork was created by Niklas Sundin (DARK TRANQUILLITY).
The product of a modern age; the sonic nature of UNE MISÈRE cannot be easily defined. With an inherently heavy nature, the band sits somewhere on a vast spectrum of blackened hardcore and aggressive metal.
