MISERY INC. Announce New Bassist, Prepare To Release Sophomore Album

Finnish metallers MISERY INC. have parted ways with longtime bassist Jukka Keisala due to "personal reasons." The group have already acquired a replacement in the shape of Aki Heikinheimo, who appears in the band's latest video, "Fallen Rage". The clip was shot in October-November under the watchful guidance of Jani Saajanaho of Dead Grafix, and will be included on the band's upcoming sophomore album, "Random End". It will also be featured on Inferno magazine's compilation DVD, along with many other Scandinavian metal videos.

The follow-up to 2003's "Yesterday's Grave", "Random End" is scheduled for release in February 2006 via Firebox Records. A demo version of the song "Fallen Rage" can be downloaded at this location.
