News : Brisbane’s Of Misery release debut EP and single ‘Black Noose’

By on July 5, 2018

Of Misery is Brisbane’s newest addition to the Australian metal scene. The band have officially announced the release of their debut EP “Black Noose” which will be made available digitally and physically from August 10th, and the single is out this Friday. The brutal Brisbane 5-piece are celebrating this release with a first taste of the EP with the title track from the record, streaming now on Youtube. Check it out below.

The record was Recorded, Mixed and Mastered by Cory Judd at Colossal Tracks Studio (She Cries Wolf, A Night in Texas, Crowned in Flesh and more).

Vocalist, Charley Watson, comments:

“Black Noose paints the emotional reality of our collective upbringing, from young adolescent teenagers to our current state. The songs in cover topics such as anxiety, depression, suicide, drug addiction, bullying and acceptance. In certain songs, we make some relations to God, though we are not a religious band we like to make the topics that have happened in our lives relatable to all audiences no matter their situation or beliefs. The lyrical side to Black Noose is very dear to us and in many cases personal. The title track from the EP especially relates to my childhood and tells the story of when I used to get bullied by the neighbourhood thug.”

“In making the overall tonality of Black Noose, we wanted to bring a dark, aggressively heavy and ambient touch to chug doom deathcore. We wanted each song to pack a punch of reality and emotion and be utterly mosh.”

Formed in mid-2017, their original lineup consisted of Charley Watson on vocals, Bart Tyson and Andy Barker on guitars, Julian Lang on bass and Cai Cardenas on Drums. After a few months of writing, they released their debut single “Immortal” in October 2017. In June of 2018, Andy Barker left the band to pursue other interests and was soon replaced by Dan McLuckie. They are due to release their debut EP “Black Noose” on August 10th 2018, with the title track being released on July 6th.
