MISERY INDEX Reveal Video And Title Track For ‘COMPLETE CONTROL From Upcoming Album


Two decades into their venerable careers, Baltimore death metal savants MISERY INDEX are back with their new record, “Complete Control”, set for release worldwide via Century Media Records on May 13th, 2022.

Today, MISERY INDEX are launching the next single which also happens to the record’s  title track. You can check it J.T> Ibanez directed video below.

“’Complete Control’ draws equally on our hardcore punk and old school death metal influences. The lyrics describe the awakening of a protagonist; one who becomes acutely aware of the totalizing power structures in everyday society that work not just from “above” – but from within as well,” states MISERY INDEX about the new track.

“Complete Control” follows the release of the band’s previous singles and music videos for “The Eaters and the Eaten” and “Infiltrators”.

“Complete Control”, the 7th studio album and Century Media debut for MISERY INDEX, was mixed by Will Putney, mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street studios and features artwork by Matt Lombard. The album 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.

MISERY INDEX’s ‘Complete Control’ track listing:

1. Administer the Dagger
2. The Eaters and the Eaten
3. Complete Control
4. Necessary Suffering
5. Rites of Cruelty
6. Conspiracy of None
7. Infiltrators
8. Reciprocal Repulsion
9. Now Defied!
