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

DYING WHALE: Last Moments Of Misery – Wonderbox Metal

“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. The band obviously have their own individualistic vision for what they want to achieve and as far as I can tell they tick all of the necessary boxes on this album.” – Wonderbox Metal

DYING WHALE: Last Moments Of Misery – Mass Movement

“This is how the world ends, not with a bang but with a DYING WHALE, howling at the forces of cosmic creation and the celestial forge in which they were unleashed countless aeons ago. Born in a screaming vortex of untampered heavy fury, DYING WHALE have harnessed and fused the spirits and energy of Catharsis, Tragedy, Buzzov-en, Turmoil, and Logical Nonsense and with Last Moments of Misery have sent their missive of exalted metallic hardcore destruction out into the masses to reap, rend and tear at, and as it, will. Rejoice, for DYING WHALE is here and the end is nigh…” – Mass Movement

Review: DYING WHALE “Last Moments of Misery” – Svbterranean

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
