Baltimore-based Death Metal band Misery Index released their newest album, Complete Control, via Century Media Records earlier this year, and have now revealed a new video for the album track “Rites of Cruelty”. The “Rites of Cruelty” video was created by Chris Joao / Iron Elephant Studio and is a “shout out to fans” who have been following the band’s tour.

Misery Index bassist/vocalist Jason Netherton checked in with the following comment:

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.

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.

Look out for further international live activity from Misery Index in 2023.
