Misery Index release “New Salem” music video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 at 12:48 PM (PST)

Baltimore death metallers Misery Index have released the music video for their newest song “New Salem.”

The song precedes the band’s upcoming album Rituals of Power due out on March 8 via Season of Mist.

“New Salem” seems to echo an idea of there being “very bad people” on both sides: “In a pacified endemic state, it’s another echo-chamber slave // Addicted to extremes of ideologies // Where left and right amalgamate and hang us from their tallest trees.”

If the people are in a “pacified endemic state,” then how is it also that they are hanging people from “their tallest trees”?

Is “New Salem” an anthem for a new violent centrist?

The band says of the track:

“‘New Salem’ sums up perfectly the lyrical vitriol and musical dynamics featured across Rituals Of Power. We wanted to introduce the album, not just with a straight-ahead ripping tune, but with a smack to the face; it’s a wakeup call for any concerned citizen and a code red for civilization. Ugly times call for stark and uncomfortable statements, and ‘New Salem’ castigates the faults and ineptitudes of our broken media system and the Crucible-esque, witch-hunt culture it fuels.”

Of Rituals of Power the band says:

Rituals Of Power is a disavowal and warning against the consequences of our so-called ‘post-truth’ age. Each of the nine songs revolves loosely around this theme, yet each track also stands very much on its own. As an album however, they are all brought to life as one ‘reanimated’ monster; it’s roughly thirty-five minutes of unhinged, yet cohesive, riff-driven aural ballistics. We were pissed off and on fire during both the writing and recording, and we think it shows in spades. We set out to write the best album we could, based on what we would want to hear first as fans of this music, and we could not be happier.”
