About Misery Index

A punishing American death metal crew who season their seismic sonic output with a generous amount of grindcore and punk, Misery Index take their name from the grim indicator that determines how the average citizen is doing economically in relation to the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate. It's also the name of the final album from Florida deathgrind legends Assück, whose aural malevolence helped to inform the group's uncompromising sound. Since debuting in 2003 with the Nuclear Blast-issued Retaliate, Misery Index have gone on to release a string of acclaimed extreme metal tomes including Traitors (2008), The Killing Gods (2014), Rituals of Power (2019), and Complete Control (2022).
