Misery Index have revealed the cover artwork and track list of their upcoming album “Rituals of Power”! The new album is slated for release om March 08, 2019 via Season of Mist.
The band comment on the album:
“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. As an album however, they are all brought to life as one “reanimated” monster; it’s roughly 35 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.
The artwork, which is created by Raphael Gabrio, and track details of “Rituals of Power” can be viewed below.
