Track Premiere: Fistula – ‘Serial Vapist’

The U.S. election is tomorrow and, let’s face it, you’ve probably been thinking about the shape of doom to come… but have you been thinking about The Shape of Doom to Cumm )))? Fistula certainly have on their new album. Today, you can hear “Serial Vapist” from that new album. 

The sludgy purveyors of miserycore bring some serious heaviness to the table despite the silliness of the song, but there’s a story behind that too. 

“‘Serial Vapist’ was the final song written for the album,” vocalist Dan Harrington explains. “Back in March, I was crashing on Bahb’s couch before our appearance at Berserker III Fest. He started playing this killer riff on his acoustic guitar. The next day we had practice, he and Corey jammed on the riff and shortly after the song was complete. 

“The day after that we recorded the entire album except for the two songs that didn’t have lyrics (‘Serial Vapist’ and ‘Sabbath Wants To Do A Split With Me’). Corey and I revisited some of our original ideas for The Shape Of Doom To Cumm))). The lyrics wrote themselves instantaneously. I worked in a record store for nine years, so writing lyrics to antagonize doom metal hipster dickheads was a fucking piece of cake, as a pretentious record nerd, I’ve been guilty of half of the shit I’m making fun of.”

Give it a listen below.
