This is NOT the Japanese band Church of Misery. This is an unreleased 1993 Doom Metal album from a different band, also called Church of Misery, featuring Stevo from Impetigo.

Minstrel of Mourning by Church of Misery is not a release by the Japanese doom band Church of Misery who focus on serial killers. Instead this is an album featuring Stevo from Impetigo and is slow doom ala Cathedral. The album is dark to the point of being almost oppressive. The songs are slow and there are very few fast moments in most of the songs. Instead they plod and lurch like a corpse. On the few moments where the band does pick up the pace it only serves to accentuate the slowness that follows and comes before. This is not for the faint of heart and is not something you would want to put on to have a good time with.
