Band Logo

Sonic Flower is an instrumental side-project formed by members of Church of Misery in the early 2000s. In a departure from Church's doom metal sound, Sonic Flower followed more of a psychedelic rock sound influenced by Cactus and Grand Funk Railroad.


Sonic Flower began roughly around 2000 as a side project involving members of Church of Misery among other bands in the local Japan area at the time. The band would eventually release their self-titled album in 2003 via Leaf Hound Records and perform in 2004 in Nagoya, Japan.[1] The band also performed as support to Acid King on two dates of their Japan tour.[2] The band also had a second album in the works at the time though it was never released. Sonic Flower's last known performance to date was in November 2007 supporting Electric Wizard. The band was also intended to open for The Hidden Hand but that respective band dissolved before their Japan tour with Church of Misery.
