Relapse Records has announced the signing of MISERY INDEX. MISERY INDEX is currently recording their as-yet-untitled Relapse debut full-length in Atlanta, GA with producer/engineer Eyal Levi. Some early track titles include "Conquistadores", "Outsourcing Jehovah", "Breathing Pestilence", "Dystopian Nightmares" and "Meet Reality". A May 2006 release is expected.
The Baltimore-based quartet is comprised of founder Jason Netherton (Bass/Vocals/Lyrics), John 'Sparky' Voyles (Guitar), Adam Jarvis (Drummer) and Mark Kloeppel (Guitarist). The band's energetic and articulate music has been pushing the boundaries of metal, hardcore and punk since the its’ spring 2001 inception.
MISERY INDEX has previously released the critically-acclaimed full-length 'Retaliate' via Nuclear Blast/EMI Records as well as several independent releases through their own Anarchos record imprint.
COVENANCE, the new band featuring former MISERY INDEX members Matt Byers (drums) and Bruce Greig (also ex-DYING FETUS), have parted ways with vocalist Vince Matthews (ex-DYING FETUS) due to "professional differences." His replacement in the group is none other than former CRYPTOPSY frontman Martin Lacroix. Martin will make his recording debut with the band in April when the band are scheduled to begin work on a new CD, to be followed by extensive touring.
Formed in March 2005, COVENANCE's first demo was remastered by Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL, MORBID ANGEL) and released as the "Ravaging The Pristine" CD (TCI) and 7" (Emetic Records).
Montreal's Neuraxis have announced the departure of guitarist and founding member, Steven Henry. The move is the result of "personal and musical differences," though the band emphatically states that the split is amicable. The group will continue as a 4-piece with intentions to recruit a live session guitarist for their upcoming tours. For his part, Henry has released the following statement:
"After 13 years as guitarist and founder of Neuraxis, I decided to take a different path. It's simple, the flame of playing Neuraxis is extinct, and gone are the motivation and taste for it. These things happen, especially when I did not expect the band to go as far as it has gone up to now, so it would be ridiculous for me to slow Neuraxis down. I don't want to be a burden, what I want is the band to grow bigger and I don't think I'm part of that equation. I definitely need a break and Neuraxis cannot afford to lose its time waiting for me. There are way too many good things ahead for the band, and I do not worry at all that Neuraxis will do great without me. I wish nothing but the best for the guys, and also that they'll find another talented and dedicated guitar player. I want to thank the guys for their time, friendship and passion for music. I wish them the best! As for me, I'll keep going with my 3 projects: Urban Aliens, Idiopathetics and Empathy Denied."
Meanwhile, Neuraxis have revealed plans to tour Japan in March with Misery Index. The following dates have been confirmed:
3/11 Yotsuya, Tokyo @ Outbreak w/ Woundeep, Defiled, Mad Butcher ABC
3/12 Shibuya, Tokyo @ Cyclone w/ Woundeep, Disconformity, Loyal To The Grave, At One Stroke, Enzweck
