For the last two decades, Church Of Misery have sawed off only the finest in uncompromising doom. The revered Japanese masters are lifelong practitioners of the genre, honoring and extrapolating upon the Sabbathian legacy from which all detuned life springs forth. Church Of Miseryâs sixth and latest album, And Then There Were None, is another blood-soaked trip through homicidal hell, with songs inspired by killers both infamous and obscure. But while the murderous inspiration for the tunes remains the same, the cast of characters is almost completely new. In 2014, Church Of Misery bassist and mastermind Tatsu Mikami was forced to assemble a new lineup for the bandâs follow-up to 2013âs Thy Kingdom Scum. His chosen few reside on American soil: Blood Farmers guitarist Dave âDepravedâ Szulkin, Earthride drummer Eric Little (ex-Internal Void) and Repulsion frontman (and former Cathedral bassist) Scott Carlson on vocals. âAll the musicians involved in this album are undoubtedly the best in this scene,â Tatsu enthuses. âSo you will enjoy listening to all play tastefully. Carlson wrote all the lyrics for And Then There Were None, which also marks the first time heâs done vocals for a full-length album since Repulsionâs genre-inventing classic,Horrified. âI was afraid to listen to it for a while because I haven't recorded a full album of vocals in almost 30 years,â he says. âOnce Tatsu had mixed everything I listened back and was able to enjoy it. The riffs are so strong on this record that even my 50 year-old vocal chords couldn't bring it down! I'm very pleased to be a part of this and I can't wait for Church of Misery fans to hear it!
