Formed in Geneva in 2005, This Misery Garden is a Dark rock/metal band influenced by bands such as Katatonia, Tool and Perfect Circle and aim to deliver a genuine, intense music: Melancholy and hope, anger and serenity, love and death, all of this blend altogether to create a vivid and illuminating sound.
After many changes, the line-up has been stabilized and is now composed by:
Laurent (ex-Zuul FX), playing the guitar.
Benjamin Nominet (Sybreed), handling the vocals.
Jay (ex-Body Bag) playing the bass.
Stephan (past member of Oyate and The Learned), playing drums.
Antoine (who studied under the guidance of Christophe Godin), as second guitar player.
During the year 2006, the band recorded 2 demo tracks for promotional use, which allowed them to emerge in the local scene. They eventually began to record their first album, “Another Great Day on Earth”, during 2007, under the supervision of Drop (Sybreed) at the “Drone Studio”. 14 powerful yet melodic songs were recorded, songs which lead them to sign a deal with Pervade Production in 2009, ensuring this way a real promotional support and a solid distribution.
However, this is only the first step and the goal is now to show the “live” dimension of their music through entertaining and professional performances.
In any way, This Misery Garden won’t let you indifferent.
