Church of Misery at Tremont Music Hall tonight (5/29/2012)
CHURCH OF MISERY While their infatuation with serial killers and exploration of dark corners of the human soul informs their lyrics, these Japanese doom metal maestros can rattle the rafters like there's no tomorrow. Diving into psychedelic stoner-sludge, with plenty Sabbath and Electric Wizard-influenced riffs and moody effects fused into the blend, Church of Misery's slow-churning tornado builds layers of guitar drone and percussion. This vintage heaviness lands the band in the upper stacks of the genre. Also on the bill: The Gates of Slumber and Hail! Hornet. $13-$15. Tremont Music Hall.
