“New Salem”: Misery Index Are Back and More Miserable Than Ever

Cover art by Raphael Gabrio at Insane Visions

Misery Index have released “New Salem,” which is technically the first single from their forthcoming album Rituals of Power, but is also kinda the second. Not that it matters when the song was released — it friggin’ rules. At its best, Misery Index’s music sounds at once smooth and destructive, like a lit powder keg rolling towards a downhill target. “New Salem” certainly meets this description. Boom.

Listen below. Rituals of Power is out March 8.
