MISERY INDEX Guitarist To Debut New Pedal Design At NAMM With Amptweaker

MISERY INDEX guitarist Mark Kloeppel has partnered with Amptweaker to unveil the “Tight Metal” pedal at the annual NAMM conference next weekend (Jan 13-16) in Anaheim, CA. Amptweaker owner James Brown, who is well known for his engineering of Eddie Van Halen and Peavey’s original 5150 guitar amplifier, teamed up with Kloeppel to create the “Tight Metal” high-gain guitar pedal.

The “Tight Metal” pedal tone circuit was devised over the past year through concepts provided by Kloeppel coupled with Brown’s unparalleled engineering expertise. The pedal also features consumer suggested innovations such as an onboard noise gate or “chomp”, a “tight” control, and more. Additional details on the new “Tight Metal” pedal can be found here.

Kloeppel will be appearing at Amptweaker’s booth at NAMM next weekend to demo the “Tight Metal” pedal to industry leaders and music fans. He has also recently posted an online video demonstration of the pedal at this location.

Aside from MISERY INDEX, Kloeppel has performed and recorded with Criminal Element, Cast The Stone, and more. He has been playing guitar professionally for nearly 10 years and has toured the world over as a musician. MISERY INDEX has most recently completed two full North American and European tours in late 2010 in support of their new album ‘Heirs To Thievery’.

‘Heirs To Thievery’, the band’s third album for Relapse Records, is currently streaming in its entirety at HeirsToThievery.info. Learn More

MISERY INDEX set album title and release date, announce further details

MISERY INDEX has set Discordia as the title of their forthcoming Relapse Records debut.

Discordia is scheduled for a May 16th release and will feature ten new tracks from the Baltimore-based quartet. The track listing is "Unmarked Graves", "Conquistadores", "Outsourcing Jehovah", "Breathing Pestilence", "Meet Reality", "Sensory Deprivation", "The Meduse Stare", "Dystopian Nightmares", "Discordia" and "Pandemican". The LP and Japanese CD pressings of Discordia will include as a bonus track a cover of NASUM's Digging In?

The band's energetic and articulate music has been pushing the boundaries of metal, hardcore and punk since the its' spring 2001 inception, and in what has become MISERY INDEX's calling card, Discordia promises to deliver lyrics as weighty and confrontational as their music is deadly.

Bassist/vocalist Jason Netherton (the quartet is rounded out by drummer Adam Jarvis and guitarists John 'Sparky' Voyles and Mark Kloeppel) explains Discordia's general lyrical approach; "The central theme of Discordia revolves around a critical approach to everyday life in our 'modern' world. The lyrics are critical but at the same time hopeful. We hope that in looking at the world as it REALLY is, without painting any happy face on that which aches and suffers for change, we can sing these songs in confidence of something that matters and of something that screams for life in a mediated framework that consistently presents death as "the way of life" in the world outside the comfortable borders of the West, as well as in our own nation."

Additionally, MISERY INDEX is currently set to tour Puerto Rico and Japan in March. A listing of those international appearances can be found in the tour section of Relapse.com.

MISERY INDEX has previously released the critically-acclaimed full-length Retaliate via Nuclear Blast/EMI Records as well as several independent releases through their own Anarchos record imprint.

Updated MISERY INDEX news and tour information will be made available at the Relapse Records website: www.RELAPSE.com and the MISERY INDEX website: www.MISERYINDEX.com.
