MISERY INDEX_cover220223

Two decades into their venerable careers, Baltimore Death Metal savants MISERY INDEX are back with their new record, “Complete Control”, to be released worldwide via Century Media Records on May 13th, 2022.

MISERY INDEX are debuting a second single off “Complete Control” with the track “Infiltrators” today. Check it out in a video-clip featuring live-footage from a show at the Ottobar in Baltimore, Maryland and directed by Chris Joao here:

MISERY INDEX checked in with the following comment about the song: ““Infiltrators” is certainly the most hardcore-tinged song on the album (as well as the shortest). The lyrics target those who spew divisive, dehumanizing ideologies. It’s an outright rejection (and admittedly a strong one) of those who support and apologize for these people and their anti-social, fascistic worldviews.”

Previously, MISERY INDEX have presented the album’s first single “The Eaters and the Eaten” in a video-clip directed, filmed and edited by J.T. Ibanez here:

And most recently, the new MISERY INDEX (bonus) track “Strategies of Manipulation” has been unveiled in an alternate mix version via the Decibel Magazine flexi series, to be checked out here:

And you can order the Decibel issue and the flexi single here:

“Complete Control”, the 7th studio album and Century Media debut for MISERY INDEX, was mixed by Will Putney, mastered by Jens Bogren / Fascination Street studios and features artwork by Matt Lombard. “Complete Control” is a riff-driven assault that captures the tension of the modern condition and channels it into 9 songs of ripping end-times Death Metal. Spewing with Orwellian invective and razor-sharp songwriting, “Complete Control” is a much-needed hammer to the face; a wake-up call for the disaffected and dispossessed. This is the album’s standard track-listing:
