Church of Misery
Church of Misery (チャーチ・オブ・ミザリー, Chāchi obu Mizarī) is a doom metal band from Tokyo, Japan. Church of Misery's style melds early-era Black Sabbath style doom with psychedelic rock.
Like the American thrash metal group Macabre, most songs by Church of Misery are about serial killers and mass murderers. After several releases on small independent record labels, they released the EP Murder Company on Man's Ruin Records, then moved on to Southern Lord Records to release their debut full length LP, Master of Brutality. In 2004 they released their second full length album, The Second Coming. That same year Japan's Leaf Hound Records released a compilation of the band's early works. Most recently they have released three split EPs, two with Sourvein and one with Deer Creek. They have also released a live DVD of their 2005 European tour.
