Profile
Miserable Faith (痛苦的信仰乐队 sometimes shortened to 痛仰 or Tongyang or Tong Young) formed in 1999 at Beijing’s Midi School of Music, part of the rising tide of metal acts in the capital, and released their first album in 2001. Since that time, their musical style has shifted away from hardcore and metal towards more folk-oriented and acoustic sounds, though with no loss in intensity.
