Editorial Reviews

Originally released on Southern Lord Records back in 2001, Master of Brutality reached number 17 in the Terrorizer magazine albums of the year. Featuring a cover of Blue Oyster classic Cities on Flame, the rest of the album is drenched in typical blood-soaked murder tales of the worlds sickest serial killers unspeakable acts against mankind. Heavy s*%# from Japans true masters of doom!

5.0 out of 5 stars Church of Misery, the Pitch Black Groove Machine September 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Church of Misery is an underrated Metal band and this is their quintessential recording.

While "Master of Brutality" is most certainly a Doom Metal record, I don't think calling it just that does it justice. Here, crushing heaviness and extremely slow tempos isn't really the point. Instead, like Black Sabbath circa Master of Reality and Vol. 4 and Electric Wizard before them, Church of Misery likes to boogie and has a clear alliance to old-school blues rock bands like Cream and The Jimi Hendrix Experience.

Tatsu Mikami's bass is high in the mix and tends to do its own thing rather than simply providing the riffs with a bottom. As a bassist, that's something I really appreciate. Junji Narita's drumming is similar. Listen closely to hear how often he sneaks fills into the songs' beats. It's great when a drummer understands subtlety. Of course, I can't just not mention the guitarist, Tomohiro Nishmura. His riffing is of course heavy and somewhat bluesy, but always propulsive and never tedious. When he breaks into a solo (which is often), expect a blues-rooted but thoroughly effed up thing of monstrous beauty that sounds like it could go off the rails at any moment. If you like the lead guitar stylings of Blue Cheer's Leigh Stephens, then you'll probably dig Tomohiro. You likely won't find yourself waiting impatiently for a song to end, no matter how long it is.

Then of course there's the band's frontman, Yoshiaki Negishi. He sounds like a more ferocious version of Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead. Considering that Lemmy himself is ferocious, this is a strong statement. Yoshiaki doesn't throw himself into a performance so much as he lunges at it like a rabid wolverine.
