Misery Index will release their new record Complete Control on May 13, and is now streaming the crushing new single "The Eaters And The Eaten." The record was mixed by Will Putney (Pig Destroyer, Psycroptic, etc.), mastered by Jens Bogren (Amorphis, The Halo Effect, etc.), and given artwork by Matt Lombard. Pre-orders are available here.
Bassist and vocalist Jason Netherton said the record draws heavily on the band's "brutal hardcore and grindcore influences."
"We are super stoked to present our new album Complete Control – a pandemic-spawned 9-track opus of vitriolic death metal which draws heavily on our enduring brutal hardcore and grindcore influences. We tracked the album in September and October of 2021, and it was subsequently mixed by Will Putney prior to being mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street studios. The cover features the visceral, uncanny work of visual artist Matt Lombard, which to us hammers home the contradictory forces of control and chaos which define our modern age.
"The album's central lyrical themes focus on these competing forces of control and chaos; they interrogate 'power' as something that is not always wielded with brute force in the modern age (through violence), but moreso as a control-society where it manifests on a self-governing, individual level.
"ALSO, we are looking very much forward to hitting the road again this year! Starting with a run of dates with our old friends Origin and Wolf King North America, leading into festival appearances, a West Coast US tour and an EU headliner coming later this year. Until then, see you all soon and keep hammering the nails!".Advertisement. Scroll to continue reading.
