MISERY INDEX will unleash their anticipated sixth full-length Rituals Of Power March 8th via Season Of Mist. Boasting nine punishing tracks centered around the concept of “truth” and its use throughout history as a means to uphold power, regimes, and ideologies, with Rituals Of Power MISERY INDEX are more furious than ever before. “Rituals Of Power is a disavowal and warning against the consequences of our so-called ‘post-truth’ age,” issues the band. “Each of the nine songs revolves loosely around this theme, yet each track also stands very much on its own. As an album however, they are all brought to life as one ‘reanimated’ monster; it’s roughly thirty-five minutes of unhinged, yet cohesive, riff-driven aural ballistics. We were pissed off and on fire during both the writing and recording, and we think it shows in spades. 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.”
Rituals Of Power will be released in several formats including standard jewel case CD and digitally as well as limited LP, limited cassette, and limited deluxe digibox which includes bonus cover tracks – Nailbomb’s “Wasting Away” and M.O.D.’s “Man Of Your Dreams” – as well as a carabiner with key strap and bottle opener, a patch, and three vinyl stickers.
