Misery Index Premiere “Rituals Of Power” Lyric Video

Misery Index have premiered a lyric video for the title track of their new album “Rituals Of Power.” That effort will be released on March 8. The band commented:

“‘Rituals Of Power‘ represents the album’s title track and most musically dynamic offering. We wanted to create something that captured the tension of this modern era; something that conjures visions of civilizational collapse and lost ideals gone astray and embeds them in riffs as monolithic as they are haunting. It is an anthem of hope as much as it is a cautionary tale; an end times farewell letter from the front lines of history. Turn it up and enjoy the ride…”

Misery Index Tease New Song “Rituals Of Power”

Misery Index have posted a teaser for the title track of their new album “Rituals Of Power” (out March 8). The full song will debut on January 10.

Misery Index Premiere “New Salem” Music Video

Misery Index have premiered a new video for their new song “New Salem.” This track is from the band’s new album “Rituals Of Power,” which will be released on March 8. The group commented:

“‘New Salem’ sums up perfectly the lyrical vitriol and musical dynamics featured across ‘Rituals Of Power’. We wanted to introduce the album not just with a straight-ahead ripping tune, but with a smack to the face; it’s a wake-up call for any concerned citizen and a code red for civilization. Ugly times call for stark and uncomfortable statements, and ‘New Salem’ castigates the faults and ineptitudes of our broken media system and the Crucible-esque, witch-hunt culture it fuels.”

Misery Index Reveal Details For New Album “Rituals Of Power”

Misery Index have revealed the details for their new album “Rituals Of Power.” The effort will be released on March 8 and the cover art and track listing can be seen below:

“Rituals Of Power” Track Listing:

01. “Universal Untruths”
02. “Decline And Fall”
03. “The Choir Invisible”
04. “New Salem”
05. “Hammering The Nails”
06. “Rituals Of Power”
07. “They Always Come Back”
08. “I Disavow”
09. “Naysayer”

The band commented:

“‘Rituals Of Power‘ is a disavowal and warning against the consequences of our so-called ‘post-truth’ age. Each of the 9 songs revolves loosely around this theme, yet each track also stands very much on its own.

It’s roughly 35 minutes of unhinged, yet cohesive, riff-driven aural ballistics. We set out to write the best album we could, based on what we would want to hear first as fans of this music, and we could not be happier.”

“After an extended break, we are absolutely chuffed to get back to European territory! We have been working away for months writing the new album (to be recorded this summer), and now its time to get back out and destroy the stage with the Index hordes. In an era of false-truths and uncertain futures, nothing gets more ‘real’ than seeing some live death metal. See you on the front line!”
