Stream DYING WHALE’s Last Moments Of Misery RIGHT HERE.
DYING WHALE released Last Moments Of Misery in February 2017, unifying elements of metal, sludge, and hardcore with ferociously raw emotional delivery. Recorded at Earthsound Studios, it was their fourth time working with engineer/producer Lee Dyess (Mayday Parade, From First to Last, I Set My Friends On Fire).
“Last Moments of Misery is a tour de force that pulls from a host of sounds. Frantic riffing, energetic vocals and a hardcore breakdown are all territory DYING WHALE treads in less than two minutes.” – Decibel Magazine
“A throwback to the early days of the American hardcore scene with a metallic twist. It’s raw, emotional, and all types of nasty. The songs sound like they were born on the beer-and-piss-soaked floors of a graffiti-covered punk house. Don’t get in DYING WHALE’s way. You’re just going to get hurt. RIYL: Converge, All Else Failed, Trap Them” – Toilet ov Hell
“a monster… bringing to mind Keelhaul, Kylesa, and Kalibas. […] Sludgy in spots, hardcore in others, but all the while held together by threads of aggression and—if you listen closely enough—subtle beauty.” – New Noise Magazine
“Last Moments of Misery is a rambunctious, unpredictable record that will batter and bruise, but will leave fans of volatile hardcore with stupid grins on their faces. This record is turbulent, savage, complex, and is a massive leap forward for this Georgia band.” – Svbterranean
“Crossing bits of Association Area, Botch, Cave In, Gallows, Shai Hulud, Will Haven and others, Last Moments of Misery is a surprisingly varied and engaging release that covers a lot of bases in its relatively short playing time.” – Wonderbox Metal
