Meshiaak return with their second album Mask Of All Misery, which will be released on 15 November. It has been three years since the Australian quartet’s debut album Alliance of Thieves dropped, which married dark undertones, heavy grooves and sophistication whilst retaining old-school metal values.
After the departure of drummer Jon Dette recruited the Australian thrashers David Godfrey as his successor and recorded with him also their upcoming disc. The songwriting for Mask Of All Misery again took over the already well-rehearsed team Danny Camilleri (v./g.) And Dean Wells (g.), who also produced the album. The longplayer was recorded in Well`s own studio in Melbourne. The video for Burn The Bodies is here for you,
Meshiaak are a mix of brooding progressive metal and heavy rock, and the band are back with new member and renewed energy. The band was formed in Melbourne, by 4ARM’s Danny Camilleri and Teramaze’s Dean Wells with bassist Andrew Cameron.
Danny Camilleri states, «Mask Of All Misery is an album that journey’s through a maze of toxic influences and the masks the exponents wear. The album deals with a lot of personal reflection and issues as well as attacking or addressing much broader issues concerning perhaps the ignorance of society in regards to what’s going on around us all».
