MEMORIAM are an old-school death metal band, maintaining the high standards set by their previous bands, focusing on the themes of death, loss and war.

In their 16-year existence, MISERY INDEX have released five studio albums, several EPs and performed well over 1000 concerts in 44 Countries. MISERY INDEX began as a studio project in 2001, when vocalist and bassist Jason Netherton joined together with guitarist / vocalist Mike Harrison and drummer Kevin Talley to record their debut EP “Overthrow”.

During the night of April 26th in 1986, a world-changing accident occurred at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine. Inspired by this catastrophe and its consequences, a highly radiated German band called CYTOTOXIN pulverized the death metal world in 2010.
In 2011, the band released their self produced full-length album PLUTONIUM HEAVEN. Only one year later they entered KOHLEKELLER STUDIOS (Aborted, Benighted) to forge their highly appreciated second record. Since the release of RADIOPHOBIA via UNIQUE LEADER RECORDS in 2012, CYTOTOXIN played Europe-wide club and festival shows. In January 2017, the band recorded their extremely anticipated third album GAMMAGEDDON. After several European tours, the nuclear quintet strikes back with their most versatile yet straight and brutal fourth album NUKLEARTH.
