The brand new studio album from Tokyo’s murder doom masters, Church Of Misery, is released worldwide by Rise Above Records on June 16th.
»Freeway Madness Boogie (Randy Kraft)« is the first single taken from it. »Born Under A Mad Sign« is available for pre-order at the Rise Above Records website now. It’s quite possibly their sickest, heaviest and grooviest slab of wax to date. Don’t miss out on these diehard editions, as they are likely to go fast.

Church Of Misery was founded by Tatsu Mikami (bass guitar) back in 1995. After the breakup of his leading thrash metal band Salem (that had toured in the UK several times and received critical acclaim from metal fans as well as the press) Tatsu decided to start his own solo project. He wanted to do something that reflected his other musical inspirations – doom metal and doom rock. Apart from metal and thrash, he was strongly influenced by doom bands like Saint Vitus, Black Sabbath and became aware that his own riffs had started to include doom vibes. Also, he was very much into late 60’s/early 70’s heavy rock material like Leaf Hound, November, May Blitz, High Tide, Gun, Blue Öyster Cult and so on. It was natural for him to shift his musical direction from metal to a more rock-influenced style.
