MISERY (AUSTRALIA)



The band formed in Brisbane in 1991 with members drawn from other local acts such as Black Magic, Savage and Northwinds. Problems with lead vocalists marked the course of the band's early career, but even so the band had already laid the foundations for their dense and formidable, all conquering holocaust. The "Sorting of the Insects" and "Astern Diabolus" demos (the latter with its confronting "demon birth" artwork) established Misery as a supremely heavy act, with a sound that flirted with flat out grindcore and elements of doom along with their patented no mercy death metal. Original singer Darren Goulding was jettisoned from the band after the release of A Necessary Evil and Morbid Angel support and also a national tour with Pungent Stench. Into the breech stepped Moises Contreras just in time for the Fear Factory support and 'Insidious' EP, which experimented more with doom elements and spawned the legendary gore-drenched video for the track 'Torn'. Contreras' stay with the band soon came to an end also, though his departure was on much more amicable grounds than Goulding's, and after several frustrating months finding a permanent replacement, Robinson took up the gauntlet himself.
