Baltimore death metal savants MISERY INDEX continue to promote their latest album Complete Control, which was released worldwide via Century Media Records earlier this year, by launching a new video for the song Rites of Cruelty’, streaming now.

Created by Chris Joao / Iron Elephant Studio, watch the video to ‘Rites Of Cruelty’ HERE.

On the new single, MISERY INDEX bassist/vocalist Jason Netherton states:
“This video is a sincere shout-out to all the MISERY INDEX fans who made the effort to come and rage with us this past summer on the various Complete Control tours – from festival stages to dive bars, we’ve hit them all, and this video is a tribute to the good times of summer past as we enter the darker months of autumn. We chose the track ‘Rites of Cruelty’ as we feel it embodies all the pissed-off energy of our new album in one bombastic faceripper, from blast beats to tank-like breakdowns, it’s become a staple of our live set, and we hope you all dig it as well.”

MISERY INDEX – ‘Rites of Cruelty’

Furthermore, MISERY INDEX are returning to Europe this weekend for a short run of festival dates.

MISERY INDEX – Live in Europe:
03.11.22 – Malmö (Sweden) – Plan B
04.11.22 – Aalborg (Denmark) – Aalborg Metal Festival
05.11.22 – Manchester (UK) – Damnation Festival

Look out for further international live activity from MISERY INDEX in 2023 to be announced soon.

Upon release, MISERY INDEX’s Complete Control entered the official album sales charts in Germany at #23 and in Switzerland at #35. In the USA it hit Current Hard Music Albums at #7, Heatseekers Albums at #119, Top New Artist Albums at #12, and Current Album Sales at #100.

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 nine 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.

Order the album HERE.

Since the early 2000’s, MISERY INDEX have performed over 1400 concerts in 44 countries, sharing stages with the likes of Napalm Death, Cannibal Corpse, Fear Factory, Dying Fetus, Amon Amarth, Behemoth, Nile, The Black Dahlia Murder, Kataklysm, Decapitated, and EyeHateGod, making them one of the most intense and merciless live-acts of our time. Look out for many more dates across the globe to be announced soon for MISERY INDEX.
