Misery Index Reveals New Album Details

American death metal outfit Misery Index has announced that they will be releasing their new studio album, "Rituals Of Power" through Season Of Mist on March 8th of next year.

The band comment on the album: "'Rituals of Power' is a disavowal and warning against the consequences of our so-called 'post-truth' age. Each of the 9 songs revolves loosely around this theme, yet each track also stands very much on its own. It’s roughly 35 minutes of unhinged, yet cohesive, riff-driven aural ballistics. 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."

Armored Saint Launch Their Own Beer

Decibel Metal & Beer Fest: Los Angeles (December 1st and 2nd), presented by Metal Blade Records, continues its mission of pairing the most extreme minds in music and craft beer with Symbol Of Salvation Belgian Blonde Ale - a collaboration between Armored Saint (who will be performing at the sold-out official festival pre-party) and participating brewery Metal Monkey Brewing (Romeoville, IL).

Brewed with Grains of Paradise and Pacifica hops, Symbol Of Salvation offers a slight twist on the traditional style; the Grains of Paradise add a slightly spicy, woody character, while the Pacifica hops bring to the party an aroma and flavor reminiscent of orange marmalade. The beer will first be tapped at the Decibel Metal & Beer Fest: Los Angeles - where Armored Saint will also be signing at 7 PM on December 1st. Enjoy Symbol Of Salvation with Armored Saint at the festival by purchasing your ticket now at decibelmagazine.com. More...
