What's the story behind the band name Misericord?
It's from medieval times.The dagger used for fatal wounded
warriors.Mercy killing to avoid the suffering and the misericord
was used for an honorable death.
Tomas Lindberg from At The Gates is doing the vocals on the
album.How did that happen??
We had all the music recorded and the lyrics written but we had
So while talking with Andy about maybe a Swedish singer or
someone else that he might think would work.
Andy joined At The Gates on the song "Cold" last year on the
Metal Town festival in Gothenburg and got back to me and said
that he had talked to Tomas about Misericord
and that he was very interested in doing the album and I
couldn't be more happy that he said yes :)
What are the lyrics about on the album?
Our original bassplayer Nick Cook wrote all the lyrics so I
shouldn't really talk about them,I guess only he really knows ;)
Which song from the new album are you looking forward to play
live the most?
It would be great to play live again sometime in the future if
everything would work out for a festival or something like that.
I guess my favorite at the moment would be "The Restless Dead".
Any guests on the album?
How come you picked the
Sonic Train Studios for the vocal recording and to mix & master
I found the Sonic Train Studios website awhile back and sent
Andy a mail about the band and some music.And I got a positive
It was only going to be mixing and mastering but when Tomas was

here as well.
