Church of Misery – Thy Kingdom Scum (Rise Above/Metal Blade)
I decided to grade this weeks musics taking the hats I think the band members would wear into consideration.
They are categorized as doom, but I hear just as much sludge and stoner as what would pass for doom. Plus, I don’t think of doom as being this “speedy” and progressive. They do have a nice heavy sound and the music varies enough so you don’t get bored.
The problem with bands like this is finding a song that is an appropriate running time for radio play. The good thing about this band is that they switch it up enough to make a 7+ minute song not boring.
1. B.T.K. (great song but instrumental)
3. Brother Bishop
