DYING WHALE: Last Moments Of Misery – Indy Metal Vault

DYING WHALE rides between the steps of doom and the waves of panic with Last Moments of Misery. […] There is little comfort to be found here…” – Indy Metal Vault

Album Review: DYING WHALE “Last Moments Of Misery” – Metal Riot

“…despite the somewhat shorter song duration the material is so energized and ass kicking that you feel like you got your mosh nut. […] DYING WHALE also have a clear punk streak which makes the material sharper and more urgent, less plodding or worried about proving they are evil metal dudes and more interested in just peeling your face off.” – Metal Riot

DYING WHALE: Last Moments Of Misery – Rock! Shock! Pop!

“The album kicks off with opener ‘Black Sky Absorbs You In’, a two minute rager that puts the band’s obvious Jesus Lizard influence way up front. […] ‘One Final First Kiss’ spends four minutes in David Yow inspired Hell, with some completely unhinged vocals, heavy bass and drum work, and some guitar playing that just comes at you from all directions. […] ‘The Cloud I Hold’ is a three minute slab of absolute vocal and musical insanity. How do you describe this? It’s non-stop fury, righteous anger channeled through precise instrumentation camouflaged by absolutely thunderous riffing.

You’re gonna need a nap after you listen to this thing.” – Rock! Shock! Pop!

BANGLADEAFY: Narcopaloma – The Ripple Effect

“In my humble opinion these new songs distill Bangladeafy‘s music into it’s purest form yet. We have two musicians who work seamlessly together to weave highly intricate blasts of technical excellence.” – The Ripple Effect

DYING WHALE Balance Aggression With Harmony On ‘Last Moments Of Misery’ – Interview with New Noise Magazine

“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

DYING WHALE: No Blubber Here – Metal Trenches

“Between their fun-but-technical riffing and occasional experimention, they have plenty of what you’re looking for. You’ll recieve plenty of bruises from the typical hardcore flair, but be ready for some interesting side steps into odd territory like the Danny Elfman-ish passage in ‘One Final First Kiss,’ the noisey, sludgy intro and Buckley-esque singing of “Distress,” or the odd mantras of ‘Denial.'” – Metal Trenches

DYING WHALE: Last Moments Of Misery – Toilet ov Hell

Last Moments of Misery is 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. No fancy recording tricks, no production sweetening; just wild-eyed and heavy. 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
