MISANTHROPIA started out with members from several bands but after several line - up changes, a stable one was found in 2014. It was then, that MISANTHROPIA
worked hard to realize OMERTÀ, the first album with this concept. It handled stories about the American underworld from the roaring twenties until the end of The Great War and sometime thereafter.
With their latest addition CONVOY OF SICKNESS, they seem to build upon its predecessor, but the events and stories are from Dutch en Belgian grounds, that occurred during the late seventies until present day.
They worked closely with MIKE WEAD (King Diamond, Mercyful Fate a.o.) and SIMON JOHANSSON (Wolf, Soilwork). From SolnaSound Recording. JAN YRLUND from Darkgrove Design is responsible again for the artwork.
