Church of Misery
A respected 70s rooted Doom band founded in 1996 by bassist Tatsu Mikami, an ex member of Thrash Metal band SALEM, and guitarist Tomohiro Nishimura. Making up the band numbers would be singer Nobukazu Chow and drummer Hideki Shimizu. CHURCH OF MISERY dwell lyrically almost obsessively on the subject of serial killers but show their obvious debt of gratitude to 70s Rock with frequent cover versions. Church of Misery allied itself with Sourvein for UK and European concerts throughout October 2006.
Bloody Hammers are a heavy rock band from Transylvania County, NC. Although commonly viewed as a gothic rock, Bloody Hammers have equally incorporated elements of doom metal, stoner metal and psychedelic rock. In early 2014 they announced signing with Napalm Records after 2 critically acclaimed albums with dutch label SoulSeller Records.
"It’s been awhile since Vanyaland has been this excited about some new metal. Too much of the genre today is cookie-cutter junk — vacuous because it follows whatever the latest semi-trend might be. Or, worst of all, there’s some amazing riffage but complete shit for vocals; like, hasn’t anyone learned a thing from Megadeth about this misstep?
That’s precisely why it’s so arresting when something like Bloody Hammers comes along. With a moniker taken from a song by psych-rock legend Roky Erickson, the music is doom without being dumb and retro without being repetitive. The Charlotte-based outfit come out swinging like Oh Dae-su in the original Oldboy, with longtime Goth staple Anders Manga leading Sabbath-esque overtones that too many try but few are able to actually pull off – especially with this sort of aplomb." - Michael Christopher/Vanyaland.com

Putting rock music at the forefront, and leaving behind any pretentious gimmick to the side ATG plans on being being heard.
