MISERY INDEX have announced a new album!
Title Complete controlthe American death metal/grindcore band’s next album follows on from 2019 Power Ritualsand is slated for release in May this year, via Media Records of the Century.
The next album was mixed by Will Putneymastered by jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios and presents works by Matt Lombard.
Speaking of the upcoming album, bassist/vocalist Jason Netherton said, “We are delighted to present our new album Complete control – a nine-track opus of pandemic-spawned vitriolic death metal that draws heavily from our brutal and enduring hardcore and grindcore influences. We followed the album in September and October 2021, and it was then mixed by go putney before being overpowered by Jens Bogren to FAscination Street Studios. The cover features the visceral and eerie work of a visual artist Mast lombard, which hammers home the contradictory forces of control and chaos that define our modern era. The album’s central lyrical themes focus on these competing forces of control and chaos; they interrogate “power” as something that is not always exercised with brute force in the modern age (through violence), but more as a society of control where it manifests itself at an individual and autonomous level. ALSO, we can’t wait to hit the road again this year! Starting with a series of dates with our old friends ORIGIN and KING OF WOLVES in North America, leading to festival appearances, a US West Coast tour and an upcoming European headliner later this year. Until then, see you soon and keep driving the nails!
