Hysterica started working on the album The Art of Metal in mid-2010 when the keyboardist Marydeath joined the band. The band did a lot of experimenting with the new sound, since they hadn’t worked with keyboard combined with guitar previously. The new sound has developed a broader spectrum. Anni De Vil has also augmented her singing techniques by incorporating both extreme singing as well as clean singing in the new songs. Early in the process of creating the album, the band contacted the producers Pontus Norgren and Marcus Jidell who have produced The Art of Metal in the best way possible. All members of the band have taken part in creating the lyrics for the new songs.
Hysterica has been working with visual artists who have been tasked with interpreting seven of the songs on The Art of Metal their respective medium. The artists involved a metal sculptor, a graphic artist, a photographer, a potter, an author, a painter and a tattoo artist, who have been given free rein to interpret a song each in their medium.
Four digital singles have been released during 2011 from the album The Art of Metal in conjunction with the release of the first single Force of Metal. Hysterica was featured on TV4 nyhetsmorgon where they played Force of Metal and Heels of Steel live on the show. The artist Bo Andersson also took part of the show and showed off his metal sculpture and discussed the project surrounding the Art of Metal..
Hysterica has toured Sweden, Europe and Russia, playing both in clubs and on larger stages like the Sweden Rock Festival (SWE) and the Hardrock Hell Festival (UK)
