Die Choking Kicking Off New Run Of Tour Dates

In the smoldering wake of their “III” LP release through The Compound Recs back in October and widespread U.S. tour actions, the Philly hypergrinders from Die Choking are ready to hit the East Coast with two bursts of tour dates in preparation for their first European tour in February.

Die Choking will take part in this year’s 305 Fest in Miami, Florida on December 12th, the show preceded by a gig in Asheville on the way down and Tallahassee after the fest, completing a three-day raid of the Southeast Coast. January sees the band headed north, with a pair of upstate New York shows in Syracuse and Ithaca with Sulaco on January 8th and 9th.

February will take Die Choking to Europe for the very first time for a two-week tour with France’s Department Of Correction. Additional Die Choking tour dates with Pyrrhon, Organ Dealer and more are also in the works for the Spring of 2016.

New Album “The Red Sect” Detailed By All Hell

After a year of honing its malefic craft, North Carolina’s blackened thrash/punk act All Hell has returned with a new volatile offering. “The Red Sect” marks a crossroads for the band; the straightforward aggression of the debut (“The Devil’s Work,” 2014) blends with a seething, menacing atmosphere – further enhanced by the mixing and mastering skills of Toxic Holocaust mainman Joel Grind – creating an album that is dark, vicious, and compelling. The record’s ten tracks weave a frightful narrative of ritual possession, vengeance, and revolt. The band has further explored and defined their sound, once again drawing influences from a wide array of genres such as thrash, black metal, deathrock, and punk.

Since the debut release, All Hell has been busy sowing chaos through live performances while crafting the sophomore effort. Playing and touring throughout the Southeast, the band has quickly developed a following and earned a reputation as one of the most intense and lethal live acts in the region, having shared the stage with bands like 1349, Black Tusk, Ghoul, Skeletonwitch, and Toxic Holocaust.

With a relentless drive, growing support, and two albums under their belt, All Hell pushes forward, intent on spreading its hellish music and intense live experience to as many people as possible.

“The Red Sect” will be released on October 16th via Horror Pain Gore Death Productoons Records. The track listing for the album is:

1. Crossroads
2. Mass Possession
3. Venomous
4. Blood for the Baron
5. Graveyard Dust
6. In My Command
7. Blackshape
8. The Unseen
9. Funeral Feast
10. The Red Sect

Homewrecker Headed Out On U.S. Tour

Ohio-based Homewrecker is currently headed out to the West Coast, determined to level every city in the band’s way getting there and back on tour over the following two and a half weeks.

The action begins tonight in Milwaukee and then cuts a counter-clockwise scythe of destruction down the West Coast and through the Southeast and Midwest getting back to Ohio. Several shows will see Homewrecker sharing the stage with Malfunction and Black Ice, with local support to appear on each show as well.

Also just in, Homewrecker has been confirmed to head back to the West Coast again just over a month after the current tour ends. This newly-confirmed sixteen-date voyage will see the Homewrecker outfit joining Atlanta powerviolence trio Dead In The Dirt and Chicago’s hardcore innovators Harm’s Way.

Merging crusty crossover and powerviolence elements with contemptuous mid-paced hardcore, Homewrecker continues to tour in support of most recent LP, “Worms & Dirt,” which A389 Recordings released a year ago. Stream the full release below.

Lavatory Inks Deal With Pulverised Records

Pulverised Records is pleased to announce the latest addition to its roster of brutality: Malaysian death metal deviants, Lavatory. The following press release was issued about the band:

“Spawned in 2012, a five-song EP entitled ‘Transgression’ was issued earlier this Summer and showcases the band’s unwavering penchant for raw, Swede-ian death metal as originally conjured by the likes of Entombed, Carcass and Dismember. Lavatory is currently working on their full-length debut. In the meantime, sample their delicious sonic decay below.”

Notes Lavatory throat-slasher Muntah Ke Darah of the union with Pulverised: “It’s a dream come true for Lavatory to sign with Pulverised as we are the first Malaysian band offered with this opportunity.”

Adds Pulverised Records label manager Roy Yeo: “Lavatory caught us by complete surprise when we first heard them, and truth be told, there really aren’t many bands in the Southeast Asia region paying tribute to the elder statesmen of Swedish death metal! This sinister alliance between Lavatory and Pulverised Records will prove to be an interesting yet lethal one indeed. We cannot wait to hear how they will pick up from where they left off with the Transgression EP. Something tells me that a mixture of sick, crushing and rotten death metal is coming our way!”
