Baltimore Death Metal savants MISERY INDEX continue to promote their newest album “Complete Control”, which was released worldwide via Century Media Records earlier this year, by launching a new video for the album-song “Rites of Cruelty” today.

The “Rites of Cruelty” clip was created by Chris Joao / Iron Elephant Studio and can be seen here:

MISERY INDEX bassist/vocalist Jason Netherton checked in with the following comment about the “Rites of Cruelty” clip: “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 hope you all dig it as well.”

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

“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 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.
