"'Serial Vapist' was the final song written for the album," FISTULA 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."

FISTULA released their Longing For Infection full-length this past Summer. Tracked and engineered by Dave Johnson (Midnight, Incantation, Soulless), the crushing full-length features the return of FISTULA founding member Bahb Branca on second guitar, furthering the band's already vile brand of sonic violence. Hear Longing For Infection in full at THIS LOCATION. Order Longing For Infection HERE.
FISTULA was forged in 1998 by musical partners-in-crime Corey Bing and Bahb Branca. Over the course of their existence, FISTULA has released a seemingly endless barrage of studio albums and split EPs through numerous lineup changes featuring the creative talents of bands such as -(16)-, Sloth, Hemdale, The Disease Concept, Accept Death, and so many others. FISTULA is a band that is impossible to categorize, combining elements of remedial sludge, hardcore and a proverbial "bad case of the Mondays." Nearing two decades of ear bleeding, FISTULA remains the kings of doomed-out "miserycore."
