I guess that's where the horses with the Japanese Doomsters go through for good. Because the fourth Church-Of-Misery album is definitely their most brute and uncompromising. A prime example for the massive energy boost that the Tokyo extreme rockers treat themselves to here is definitely the thirteen-minute album "Dusseldorf Monster (Peter Kurten)", on which what belongs together grows together: here the Church Of Misery impresses with a broadside of doom, stoner and extreme metal. And on an epic scale, too. Besides the 'vampire of Düsseldorf' Peter Kürten, whose likeness also adorns the cover of the album, Church Of Misery have again done it with mass murderers, creating posthumous monuments for serial killers like Dennis Rader ("B.T.K."), Ian Brady and Myra Hindley ("Lambs Of Slaughter") and John Linley Frazier ("An Hallow's Eve"). You can think what you want of that, the Japanese rigorously pull through their boots. And they also bring "One Blind Mice", a cover of the Seventies icon Quatermass. Evil and mean!
