Church of Misery - Houses of the Unholy (2009)

It appears that I'm a bit late to the party, seeing as how the internet has been up in a tizzy about this album for quite some time. After having heard nothing but good things about "Houses of the Unholy," I decided to give it a shot. Color me impressed. On this album, at least, Church of Misery sounds like a bluesier, doomier Boris with throaty, shouted vocals and lyrics about serial killers. The sampled news reports/interviews are downright chilling at times, but the music has a sickening groove to it that makes those murderers seem like they'd be cool people to jam with.

  1. I loved Master of Brutality, but I'm not a great fan of The Second Coming. Is this back to the awesomeness of Master...?

    This is my first experience with the band, so I wouldn't know. I'll be sure to check out those other albums

  3. Definitely get Master of Brutality. It's pretty much perfect.
