The official lyric video for the song "The Choir Invisible" from MISERY INDEX can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's new album, "Rituals Of Power", which will be released on March 8 via Season Of Mist.
The band comments: "'The Choir Invisible' is a euphemism for the dead, or those who have passed on. In the context of this song, it is an anthem of the dispossessed and the hopeless.
"Many across the world exist in an 'in-between' state that is often ignored and/or washed over because they lack the power and voice to plead their case as human beings. The song takes up this theme and tells it from the somber view of those who risk their lives, board ships and cross oceans in order to find a better life."
"Rituals Of Power" sees the powerhouse quartet unleash a barrage of ferocious death metal as violent as it is savvy. Their vicious vocals spit venom, laying bare the ills of a dystopian society gone mad. As rampaging new tracks like "New Salem", the title track, and "I Disavow" so brashly prove, "Rituals Of Power" is world-class modern extremity and MISERY INDEX only grows more powerful with time.
"Rituals Of Power" will be released in several formats, including jewel-case CD, limited LP, limited cassette, 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, and digitally.
The artwork for "Rituals Of Power" was created by Raphael Gabrio and can be viewed below.
