Here's another bone for the rabid G.O.M.E. doom contingent to chew on. As I've mentioned in previous posts, I have tried to like CHURCH OF MISERY. I love the riffs, their choice of covers, and the grooves. The musicianship is in place to create great doom metal. I guess that's why the whole serial killer gimmick annoys me so much. These guys could get by without it. The covers are great, though. Any band that covers both SAINT VITUS and IRON BUTTERFLY gets at least a spin or two at Casa de Jack Grande.

Disc One

1. Spahn Ranch
2. Road to Ruin
3. Reverend
4. War Is Our Destiny
5. Room 213
6. Taste the Pain
7. Plainfield
8. In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida

Disc Two

1. Murder Company
2. Son of a Gun
3. Where Evil Dwells
4. Sick of Living
5. Come Touch the Sky
6. Accident
7. Chains of Death
8. Retal

Your missing that point man...
Church of Misery have the name, the riffs, the grooves...AND the serial killers!!

Nobody else can claim it the way they have...they nailed the term "cult" in stoner rock, the way Kyuss nailed "desert".

"Born Too Late" says it all...
hands down, the best stonerrock album title of this generation.

Besides, they're Japanese...
they love Mickey Mouse as much as John Wayne Gacy. ; )

Btw, Church of Misery is a decent band, I like their The Second Coming album.
