Misery Index's music is best described as death metal with strong hardcore punk and grindcore influences. Its lyrics tend to be highly critical of prevailing power structures in modern culture, everyday life and the ills of modern society, often coinciding with progressive, radical and anarchic aesthetics. Their band name is derived from the economic indicator of the same name. Misery Index have released five studio albums, several EPs and performed over 1200 concerts in 45+ countries. The next full-length will be released in February 2019 on Season of Mist.
