Misery Loves Co.

Misery Loves Company combined elements of doom, thrash, and industrial to create a sound that is quite intense and original, as well as pretty depressing. The industrial influence is probably the most dominant, and thus bands like Nine Inch Nails and perhaps Ministry are reference points, though not so much soundalikes. The duo disbanded in 2000 following the release of Your Vision Was Never Mine To Share, informally started working together several years later, and officially announced their reunion in 2016.
