We covered Misery Index working on a new album all the way back in January 2017, so it's pretty exciting to have the band officially announce the fruits of their morbid labors.
Misery Index will release Rituals Of Power on March 8, which was recorded with Ryan Vincent M at Apollo Audio Alternative, Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal, Morbid Angel) at Mana Recording, and Valtteri Kallio at Soundwell Studio. The record was also mixed and mastered by Will Putney (Gojira, Psycroptic, Thy Art Is Murder) for maximum heaviness.
Here's the band's statement on the record.
"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."
Check out the previously released song "I Disavow," which will be featured on Rituals Of Power, and catch the guys on tour in Europe this March with Wormrot and Truth Corroded.
