Tue, Feb 25 2014: MISERY INDEX
American death grind extremists MISERY INDEX have announced ‘The Killing Gods’ as the title of their forthcoming new full-length. The band’s fifth studio album will hit the stores on May 23rd (May 27th in North America).
Front man Jason Netherton issued the following update: “After an extended writing and recording process we have finally completed ‘The Killing Gods’. It is the longest, most diverse and most complete album we have ever created, and it represents the blood, sweat and beers of four dudes trying to make the best songs they can. We think we have succeeded and we hope you do as well. Look for this metal beast to drop in May!”
‘The Killing Gods’ was recorded at Wright Way Studios in Baltimore, MD and engineered by Steve Wright (DYING FETUS, SLIPKNOT, SOILWORK). The drum parts were tracked with Scott Hull (PIG DESTROYER, AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED, BLACK TUSK, BRUTAL TRUTH) at Visceral Sound in Bethesda, MD.
Having cemented a reputation as one of the most formidable live bands in grindcore and death metal, MISERY INDEX (Jason Netherton – bass guitar, vocals, Mark Kloeppel – guitar, vocals, Adam Jarvis – drums, Darin Morris – guitar) have toured the world over numerous times on the backs of four critically-acclaimed albums. The Baltimore-based quartet has leveled venues in over 40 countries over 1000+ live shows. With albums showcasing a disgust for everyday life and the ills of modern society, MISERY INDEX will continue to push their crushing take on pummeling grind/metal with the release of 'The Killing Gods'.
The band recently announced a special live date as part of this year's Maryland Death Fest pre-show, on May 21.
