5.0 out of 5 stars Church of Misery's best album (so far) 20 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD
Before I get into the actual review I will start from two different perspectives:

A) You already like Church of Misery or at least like some other Stoner/Sludge/Doom bands and are aware of Church of Misery = You will love this album, without doubt - hop to it!

B) You know nothing at all of Church of Misery, you have never heard a note, and are possibly not even familiar with any Stoner, Sludge or Doom music = Assuming you do indeed like some heavier rock/metal bands, this would be a great place to start exploring the doomy stonery world; a great gateway album for you. In short, you will still love it!

So, how does it sound? Well, if you're familiar with Church then business as usual, just on absolutely top form. If you are unaware of their music it is very "groovy", think Black Sabbath style riffs but with heavy use of Wah Pedal and all manner of psychedelic effects. Mostly mid-tempo with some slower sections pounding, groovy, straight-up rock'n'roll... and that's about it, in a nutshell.

Vocals? This could be a deciding factor for some people, and it is a difficult aspect of the band to describe. The vocals here (as with most official CoM releases) are sort of half-sung and half-screamed, and vary in their intensity on either side of this spectrum. The first track with vocals, "Lambs to the Slaughter" (as opposed to the actual first track, "BTK", which is an instrumental) showcases this odd, but good, style very well - the verses are, sort of, sung (but are largely indecipherable), then the chorus erupts into a Phil Anselmo-esque shriek... later in the song we are treated to a wobbly "Whoa Yeah" to keep the Stoner vibe alive (I love all that). If the idea of the vocals very roughly traversing these styles sounds like your bag then you should love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old school 6 Jun 2013
By Blilith
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This is old school heavy metal with a twist. Take a blender put in Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, The Groundhogs, some pepper then a load of over the top distorted guitar. Then mix and pour. Tastes sweet doesn't it? Then bang you head against the wall. This is good. I love it, maybe you will.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mosque of Joy. 9 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD
As I sit to write this review the still warm entrails of my wife curl around my feet. The sensation is akin to that of having taken a warm shower in your favourite comfy slippers. The bread knife pierced her abdomen easily, a swift upwards movement and the evisceration was instantaneous. The Chez Vegas Slicer had claimed another satisfying victim.

Anyway, enough of my private life, what have Church of Misery delivered here?
Well, it appears they have upped the ante and delivered their career highlight so far. A monolithic slab of Murder DOOM musically placed somewhere between the first two Sabbath albums. OK so the subject matter may not be what polite company would desire but with the singer sounding like he might well be gargling with the contents of Denis Nilsen's drains he could be singing his shopping list.

Is this recommended? YES!! BUY - or die horribly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Expertly crafted metal 25 Mar 2014

This is heavy stuff but the fact that the they are Japanese somehow makes it amusing. Needs the volume turned up to eleven and some big woofers, I'm sure one's ears will recover eventually :-)
