About Misery Index
Misery Index is an American death metal band formed in 2001 in Baltimore, Maryland by Jason Netherton (bass, vocals), Mike Harrison (guitar, vocals) and Kevin Talley (drums). Some say the band is named after Assück's last album of the same name (1996), however the socio-political theme featured in many of the lyrics also point towards the economic term (both increasing inflation and unemployment result in the rise of the misery index). As of 2010, its line-up consists of Jason Netherton (bass, vocals), Darin Morris (guitar), Mark Klöppel (guitar) and Adam Jarvis (drums). Read more about Misery Index on Last.fm.
