Master of Brutality

Murder Company is the second EP by the Japanese doom metal band Church of Misery. It would be originally released as a translucent purple 10" with a screenprinted sleeve via Man's Ruin Records on 5 July 1999.[1] Murder Company would also be released as a split CD with Iron Monkey, including their EP We've Learned Nothing, on 9 July 1999.

Notably the Split CD would contain a bonus track in Where Evil Dwells (Richard Ramirez) (5:02), written by guitarist Tomohiro Nishimura. The two songs of the 10" were both written by bassist Tatsu Mikami. Notably the page promoting the EP would actually list "Where Evil Dwells" as the MP3 song to download rather than the two actual songs on the 10".[2] All three songs would be included on Early Works Compilation.
