Misery Index have released a new video for The Calling on their own YouTube channel. The video was shot by David Hall and the track comes off the new album The Killing Gods, which is out now on Season of Mist.

A ton of releases hit the streets this week.  Here are my winners, losers, and my big surprise.

Winners:

Crowbar – Symmetry In Black (eOne)  Leaving Down last year to focus on Crowbar was definitely a wise move by Kirk Windstein.  His focus for Symmetry in Black is impressive.  The riffs, those mighty riffs.  They are packed into this album like sardines in a can, and while a really enjoyed the Kingdom of Sorrow records, the riffs felt wasted with Jamie Jastas voice.  Not an issue here.

On Misery Index’s last touring cycle I knew going into the show that I was buying a shirt. These days that’s a rarity, but I love this band and was excited to support them. I was on the guest list so I felt obligated to help fund them in some way. Then I got to the show at Satyricon (side note, this is the club where Kurt Cobain met Courtney Love, and it wasn’t out of character to find a junkie passed out in the bath tub that was the urinal/man trough). I walked up to the merch booth with money in hand and that’s when it hit me. At some unbeknownst time, Misery Index turned into a douchey bro band – those of the dayglo logos that cover the entire front of the shirt. The band didn’t disappoint live, but I left empty handed. It was with that in mind that I hesitantly approached The Killing Gods.
