Die Choking
Die Choking
The debut LP from Philadelphia’s unchained grind trio, DIE CHOKING, sees the band delivering seemingly implausible heaviness delivered at an absolutely unstoppable velocity, the eleven tracks on III deliver even faster BPM-rates and more complicated arrangements than the band’s prior releases, merging more elements of hardcore punk and crust with their blinding speed/grind metal. Socio-political topics as intense as the music itself permeate each blazing anthem, which continue the ongoing theme carrying through from their smoldering self-titled debut and subsequent II 7” releases, with tracks XI through XXI. The impending debut LP from Philly’s most unhinged act promises to be one of the most violent, high-speed releases of 2015.

With an already unfuckwithable track record built through their prior releases and their insatiable need to play their tunes at maximum speed in the live setting as often as possible, DIE CHOKING -- featuring ex and current members of Total Fucking Destruction, Cop problem, and Burden -- is about to take things to the next level with their debut full-length. All in all, III is one of the heaviest grindcore albums ever conceived. Written during the shitty Northeastern Winter months, it is an album stripped of overproduction, performed with devastating efficiency, and dripping with a foul aggression that is frequently absent in today’s extreme music landscape. III was recorded, engineered, and mixed by Will Yip (Lauryn Hill, Circa Survive, Cop Problem) at Studio 4 and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Baptists, From Ashes Rise, Nails). There are no samples, no triggers. The band simply drilled the takes until they hit it.

As with their prior duo of 7” releases, Earsplit-forged DIY label The Compound Recs will release III directly in conjunction with the band. The vinyl is pressed in a run of 500 copies on 180-gram wax in three crazy blue color variants in juxtaposition with the cover art designed by DIE CHOKING guitarist Jeffrey V Daniels -- 200 on Blues Of The Mighty Haze, 200 on Blue & Bone Splatter Milky Clear, and 100 A Side / B Side black base with 2 blue Splatter, exclusive to The Compound.

DIE CHOKING continues their ongoing live rampage -- a killing spree which has not ceased since the band’s inception -- with a plethora of new shows confirmed through the coming months straight through the release of III, including their first invasion of Europe in early 2016.

Issues founding bassist/vocalist Paul Herzog quote on the upcoming album, “DIE CHOKING’s forthcoming album III is a dastardly Americanized reinterpretation of Plato's allegory of the cave. It is a dense work and presents a politicized metaphysical cycle: origin, liberation, corruption, falter, violent degradation, decay, and rebirth. III is a brutal reference to both ancient and modern interpretations of existence, morality, and politics. This album is a short, simple and a delightfully entropic vision. It presents a nihilistic emergence from ignorance that is met not by a joyous embrace of eternal knowledge but is heralded by a vision of an eternal, ever-stretching graveyard. It is here that coffin after coffin and grave upon grave stretches into the forever.”
Organ Dealer
Horror Pain Gore Death Productions welcome northern New Jersey's Grindcore fiends Organ Dealer to the roster with their punishing debut album "Visceral Infection". Formed in a damp basement in June of 2013, Organ Dealer are a a flash point of sound, 100% full speed and relentless mayhem! "Visceral Infection" is 20 intense minutes of pain, frustration and relief... the sum of experiences only brought on by living in a place like NJ. This is REAL Grind with a Death Metal backbone and an honest representation of what fast, heavy music is when crammed into one tight space. Prepare yourself to have the back of your head splattered against the wall!
