The Origins of Misery is a collection of everything Lamented Souls have recorded, spanning ten years from their early demos up until their previously unreleased album. Instead of leaving these sessions to bottom drawer oblivion, the band felt it was better to put it out in the best possible way, before concentrating on new material for their debut album proper. It should speak volumes for the confidence Lamented Souls have in their material when they are prepared to leave out this material, including many of their very best songs, from a "real" album. Still, the Origins of Misery serves as a perfect taster of what is to come and it sums up the band's career coherently. Comprising talent from a number of well known bands - Dimmu Borgir, Cadaver and Beyond Dawn to name a few, Lamented Souls are a unique part of the Norwegian metal heritage. In a climate where black metal is the order of the day, few bands are more into actual songwriting. Drawing inspiration from classic doom acts like Black Sabbath, Candlemass, Cathedral and St. Vitus, and also 70s legends like Pentagram and Kiss, Lamented Souls mould their own brand of metallic doom rock. Guided by Simen Hestn's' (Dimmu Borgir, ARCTURUS) singular vocal delivery, theirs is a sound unequalled in this day and age. Duplicate. 2006.
