New Lyric Video From Long-Running Death Metal Unit MISERY INDEX

Rituals Of Power is the imminent new full-length from long-running American death metal powerhouse MISERY INDEX. Set to drop March 8th via Season Of Mist, the record boasts nine crushing tracks centered around the concept of “truth” and its use throughout history as a means to uphold power, regimes, and ideologies.
In advance of the record’s release, Decibel Magazine offers up the official lyric video for Rituals Of Power’s title track noting, “The sixth out of nine songs, ‘Rituals of Power’ is a high-speed chunk of ripping death metal that simultaneously grooves and grinds, showcasing MISERY INDEX at their finest. Oh, and the song is catchy without sacrificing its extremity.”
Offers the band, “‘Rituals Of Power’ represents the album’s title track and most musically dynamic offering. We wanted to create something that captured the tension of this modern era; something that conjures visions of civilizational collapse and lost ideals gone astray and embeds them in riffs as monolithic as they are haunting. It is an anthem of hope as much as it is a cautionary tale; an end times farewell letter from the front lines of history. Turn it up and enjoy the ride…”

View “Rituals Of Power,” below.  Rituals Of Power will be released in several formats including standard jewel case CD and digitally as well as limited LP, limited cassette, and limited deluxe digibox which includes bonus cover tracks – Nailbomb’s “Wasting Away” and M.O.D.’s “Man Of Your Dreams” – as well as a carabiner with key strap and bottle opener, a patch, and three vinyl stickers.

King Diamond launches new video, “Arrival (Live at Graspop)”

On January 25th, King Diamond will release a new DVD/Blu-ray, Songs For The Dead Live, via Metal Blade Records.

There is only one King Diamond, and for more than thirty years the great Dane has been dropping classic albums and putting on shows fans remember for the rest of their lives. Perhaps the only downside to having such a formidable catalogue is that there are just too many great songs to fit into a single set. However, you would be hard-pressed to find a fan who wouldn’t want to hear 1987’s seminal Abigail in its entirety, and Songs For The Dead Live captures this, twice, and in very different locales. Boasting eighteen songs per set, each of the two shows – Belgium’s Graspop Metal Meeting in June 2016 and Philadelphia’s Fillmore in November 2015 – feature a brace of classic King Diamond and Mercyful Fate tracks including “Welcome Home,” “Halloween,” and “Eye Of The Witch” before launching into Abigail. The performances of the all-star lineup of musicians, comprising of guitarists Andy LaRocque and Mike Wead, bassist Pontus Egberg and drummer Matt Thompson, are absolutely ferocious, hammering home every single moment.

For a preview of Songs For The Dead Live, a new video, “Arrival (Live at Graspop)”, can be viewed below.
