This is Church of Misery's newest release and the first song is a non-stop guitar jam mixed with Jim Jones clips and I'm loving it. I've always been into cults and cult leaders, so this tune really is perfect to me. The next song seems to be Sabbath's "Paranoid" with German lyrics, but the lyrics are changed to be about The Hound of the Baskervilles. Odd, indeed, but it's cool as hell. The 3rd song is also sung in German and it's another unusual but awesome track. I can't even describe it, so see for yourself.

  1. I've been jamming to this one for a good little while now. I absolutely love Church of Misery. There's no better way to start the day off than listening to some authentic Oriental serial killer sludge. This shit is heavier than my coffee mug.
