CHURCH OF MISERY was founded by Tatsu Mikami (bass guitar) back in 1995. After the breakup of his leading thrash metal band SALEM (that had toured in the UK several times and received critical acclaim from metal fans as well as the press) Tatsu decided to start his own solo project. He wanted to do something that reflected his other musical inspirations - doom metal and doom rock. Apart from metal and thrash, he was strongly influenced by doom bands like SAINT VITUS, BLACK SABBATH and became aware that his own riffs had started to include doom vibes. Also, he was very much into late 60's/early 70's heavy rock material like LEAF HOUND, NOVEMBER, MAY BLITZ, HIGH TIDE, GUN, BLUE OYSTER CULT and so on. It was natural for him to shift his musical direction from metal to a more rock-influenced style.
Five guys from bands such as Wickerman, Buried at Sea, Unfortunaut, The Peelers, Boneface and a few others who double up the doom for your doomed pleasure
Featuring members of American Draft, Veterans, Masses, and High Wasted, COKEGOAT is an aggressive, 6 member metal oriented band founded in and by Chicago. Artfully combining elements of doom, stoner and blackened death metal with tasteful guitar licks, COKEGOAT wants to taste your outsides from the inside.
