Misery Index

Misery Index

Hometown: Baltimore, MD (USA)


Misery Index is a deathgrind band formed in 2001 in Baltimore, Maryland, United States, by Jason Netherton (bass, vocals), Mike Harrison (guitar, vocals) and Kevin Talley (drums). As of 2006, its line–up consists of Jason Netherton (bass, vocals), Sparky Voyles (guitar), Mark Kloeppel (guitar, vocals) and Adam Jarvis (drums).

Misery Index's music is best described as death metal with strong hardcore punk and grindcore influences. Their vein of music is often said to resemble their fellow Maryland brutal death metal outfit Dying Fetus, as Netherton, Voyles, ex–guitarist Greig and ex–drummer Talley are all former members of that band. Misery Index's lyrical subject matter is quite left–wing, often coinciding with anarcho–punk aesthetic and focusing mostly on the ills of modern society. Their band name is derived from the economic indicator of the same name, which was also the namesake of the last album by Assück, from whom Misery Index draw a significant influence.
