Baltimore death metal savants MISERY INDEX release their second single and music video for “Infiltrators” today. Watch the video featuring live-footage from their show at the Ottobar in Baltimore, Maryland, which was directed by Chris Joao, HERE. The track is off their new record, Complete Control, to be released worldwide via Century Media Records on May 13th.

MISERY INDEX states about the song, “’Infiltrators’ is certainly the most hardcore-tinged song on the album (as well as the shortest). The lyrics target those who spew divisive, dehumanizing ideologies. It’s an outright rejection (and admittedly a strong one) of those who support and apologize for these people and their anti-social, fascistic worldviews.”

 “Infiltrators” follows the release of the band’s first single off Complete Control, “The Eaters and the Eaten”. Watch the music video, which was directed, filmed and edited by J.T. Ibanez, HERE.

Recently, the new MISERY INDEX (bonus) track “Strategies of Manipulation” was unveiled in an alternate mix version via the Decibel Magazine flexi series. Check it out HERE and order the Decibel issue and the flexi single HERE.

Complete Control, the 7th studio album and Century Media debut for MISERY INDEX, was mixed by Will Putney, mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street studios and features artwork by Matt Lombard. The album 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. 

Complete Control tracklisting:

  1. Administer the Dagger
  2. The Eaters and the Eaten
  3. Complete Control
  4. Necessary Suffering
  5. Rites of Cruelty
  6. Conspiracy of None
  7. Infiltrators
  8. Reciprocal Repulsion
  9. Now Defied!

Next to the jewelcase CD, LP and digital versions of the album, Complete Control will also be available as limited deluxe 2CD box set (see mock image below), containing the studio album as a jewelcase CD, an additional 5-track bonus EP entitled Strategies of Manipulation in a slimline case CD, a black tote bag with artwork print, a button set with 2 buttons and a double-sided mini poster.

  2. Supposed to Rot (Entombed Cover) 
  3. Infiltrators (Instrumental Version)
