Die Choking Meatlocker 3 May 2016 [photo by Paul Buczkowski][photo by Paul Buczkowski]

Philadelphia-based by-the-throat hardcore grinders DIE CHOKING will take their blistering live set to the audiences at Full Terror Assault fest this weekend in Cave-In-Rock, Illinois. The band will storm the main stage of the massive gathering alongside the likes of Lock Up, Rotten Sound, Dying Fetus, Cephalic Carnage, Sacred Reich, Shining, Master, and many others.

DIE CHOKING continues to tour in support of their debut LP, III, which has seen the band decimating audiences across North America and Europe steadily over the past year since the album’s release. The attack of the band’s first European tour early this year alongside Paris-based Department Of Correction will now repeat itself on US shores this Fall. DOC will head into the country mid-October to join up with DIE CHOKING for a week-and-a-half of tour dates down the East Coast, which comes to a finale at the massive The Fest 15 in Gainesville, Florida with the likes of Fucking Invincible, Coke Bust, Braid, Night Birds, and dozens more. The tour is preceded by a rash of DIE CHOKING one-off shows over the coming weeks.

DIE CHOKING’s III is available on limited colored LP and CD via The Compound Recs HERE and the band HERE, and digitally via Bandcamp, iTunes, and all other digital outlets.

Decibel Magazine calls the band, “the energetic, Hellenistic philosophy-obsessed future of grind,” offering, “Just don’t think that DIE CHOKING’s fondness of brevity is another example of 21st Century grind kid ADD… the band takes pride in the arrangements, narrative and atmosphere of whirlwinds…” Stereogum issued, “…III’s not all flying spittle and popping veins. DIE CHOKING channels the intensity with a subtle songwriting intelligence that begins to emerge after the initial shock of their impact wears off.” Noisey notes how DIE CHOKING, “has grown a big reputation in short time for its unrelenting, caustic brand of socio-politically conscious, anti-authoritarian punk/metal played at tempos that come close to breaking the sound barrier, issuing of the LP, “III contains the band’s most confrontational, intense, and crust-fueled sounds yet while exploring heady philosophical concepts.” Bloody Disgusting praised the devastation of the album’s, “pure sensory assault, featuring blistering drums, raging vocals, and a wall of distorted guitars, all combining to ensure maximum face melting power,” and Cvlt Nation exclaims, “An all-out brutality fest will take place in your brain once you hear this album! From the very first to the last moment of this album, this band wants to punish, and they do a pummeling job of just that!”

GRIDFAILURE To Release Teeth Collection Free EP Series; Video And Additional Projects Under Construction

Gridfailure idiothead_spectre_mutant_web

Hostile alchemist GRIDFAILURE will issue a series of free digital EPs over the coming months, bearing the communal title, Teeth Collection.

The sequence of Teeth Collection chapters sees the GRIDFAILURE solo project delivering its unclassified sub-mutation of dark experimentation in collaboration with a wide array of musicians and cohorts, resulting in a noxious barrage of odd tunes to be considered unpredictably volatile and bizarre. The nauseating paranoia and wrath of GRIDFAILURE’s Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here debut sees the project casting speculation upon supremely macabre aspects of our decline, and envisioning humanity’s feeble struggle surviving in the sub-apocalyptic habitat of our impending future days.

The first installation of Teeth Collection will be released shortly, with multiple chapters to follow in succession throughout the upcoming months. Each EP will be made available for free download upon its release; once all chapters are issued, a physical manifestation of the series will take place.

Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here was released in May via the Earsplit DIY label sector, The Compound Recs. Orders for the alluringly economical eco-wallet CD receive free GRIDFAILURE paraphernalia HERE; digitally the album can be found at Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes, and most others.

Stream Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here at Bandcamp HERE and Soundcloud HERE.

GRIDFAILURE is the outfit is the output of David Brenner (ex-Theologian, Heidnik, Dead By Dawn) who here layers unorthodox instrumentation wrought with unhinged vocal exploration and punishing rants, formulating a biomechanical mistake neither man or nature want to claim. Through the abuse of more than a dozen instruments and a library of field recordings, Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here bears eight movements performed, recorded, and produced entirely by Brenner. In addition to the Teeth Collection, several other new collaborations, splits, a video from Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here, a live incarnation of GRIDFAILURE, and more are under construction.

Noisey published, “skeletal compositions take horrifying shape and become dense nightmares of warped instruments, disintegrating static, and shifting tones that more closely resemble howling wind than actual music… Utilizing everything from decaying electronics to violins and harmonica, GRIDFAILURE manages to fuse the familiar and the foreign in a way that is more likely to cause listeners to clench their jaw than to nod their heads.” No Clean Singing talks of, “Wisps of eerie, hypnotic, melodic tones loop beneath the swirling moans and shrieks of phantasms and the cries of lost souls, along with flickering spasms of electronics… The experience is both disturbing and trance-inducing.” Svbterranean says, “The end result is eight sprawling, haunting tracks that will instill paranoia in listeners everywhere.” The Monolith writes, “Ensuring the Bloodline Ends Here sounds like Godflesh trapped down a mine shaft… Drone fans will identify with the atmospheres and the immersive soundscapes; an obvious comparison is Sunn O))), whose followers will find this a little more controlled and precise. Unsettling and confrontational…” And Wonderbox Metal claimed, “Upon pressing play the music takes you off into its dark world of urban blight and catastrophic end times, lulling you with electronic whispers and static cries, urging you to leave the real world behind and delve into the underworld of decaying cities and forgotten industrialization. This, along with the recent monstrous collaboration between Boris and Merzbow, has restored some of my faith in what is, for me, a very hit-or-miss genre.”

GRIDFAILURE: Cvlt Nation Premieres “Self-Exile” As Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here Release Looms

Gridfailure Polaroid 2016-7

As torturous new experimental outfit, GRIDFAILURE, prepares for its Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here for release on Friday the 13th, Cvlt Nation has issued the record’s “Self-Exile” for mutual consumption.

A soundtrack to which the listener may feel driven to podcast their own snuff film live, or explore creative surgery tactics on unsuspecting neighbors, Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here is a curious mutant; an unforeseen entity which was only conceived three months ago. The sole creator of these atrocities generated the GRIDFAILURE classification to embody the Frankensteinian, musical experimentation taking place in random sessions. When these trials went very wrong, instead of burying and denying the project immediately, the confused architect dove headlong into the abyss, creating the perplexing, exploratory attack on the senses, Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here.

Cvlt Nation has premiered GRIDFAILURE’s “Self-Exile,” noting, “Deep underground exists forgotten cities that have become a graveyard for a past that is only alive in our nightmares. GRIDFAILURE is a noise artist who creates morbid soundscapes that can act as a guide into the unknown places that imagination might not want to go.” Listen now at THIS LOCATION.

Also hear the track “Apparitions Revenge” at No Clean Singing RIGHT HERE.

Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here will see release on eco-wallet CD and digital via the Earsplit label faction, The Compound Recs, Friday, May 13th. Preordered physical copies receive free GRIDFAILURE paraphernalia HERE, and digital preorders include an instant download of the track “Apparitions Revenge” HERE.

GRIDFAILURE‘s  Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here bears eight movements performed, recorded, and produced entirely by David Brenner (Theologian, ex-Heidnik), who misuses a variety of guitars, basses, violins, harmonica, keyboards, electronics, chimes, drums, and elements of incineration, physical ailments, weather systems, faunae, and other auditory unpredictability. Layers of unorthodox instrumentation wrought with unhinged waves of vocal exploration and punishing rants formulate a biomechanical mistake neither man or nature want to claim.

GRIDFAILURE will continue to unfold, expand, and deteriorate upon the public in the coming months with the infusion of additional performers, through collaborative recordings, and more, with new material and live inflictions being devised for the coming months.

GRIDFAILURE: Demoralizing New Outfit Completes Debut Album For May Release Via The Compound Recs; Track Streaming At No Clean Singing

Gridfailure Polaroid 2016-3

GRIDFAILURE is the unforeseen, disharmonic outcome of an experiment that rapidly spiraled out of control in very recent weeks. Barely two months old, the solo outfit has completed a full-length album set for release in May via The Compound Recs, and today sheds the track “Apparitions Revenge” from the demoralizing effort through No Clean Singing.

The genesis of GRIDFAILURE unexpectedly took place in February of 2016 when solitary member David Brenner (Theologian, ex-Heidnik, Vise Massacre, etc.) began to conduct disturbing Frankensteinian experimentation on material collected from various solo recording sessions over several months prior. With no forethought plan as to what these sessions were to become, while layering these disturbing and off-kilter recordings, the mutated pieces began cannibalizing each other in an uncontrollable downfall; instead of ending the experiment under acres of hard earth immediately, the confused creator dove headlong into the abyss.

The debut GRIDFAILURE recordings have converged into a perplexing, exploratory attack on the senses, dubbed Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here, which bears eight movements incepted, performed, recorded, produced, and packaged by Brenner. Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here incorporates the abuse of electric and acoustic guitar/bass, violins, harmonica, keyboards, electronics, chimes, drums, bongos, den-den daiko, chains, bells, and more, in addition to the infusion of other components not limited to incineration, bizarre weather systems, tools, and mammals. Layers of unorthodox instrumentation ethereally infested by unhinged waves of unharnessed vocal exploration and punishing rants formulate a biomechanical mistake neither man or nature want to claim.

The chief of trusted portal No Clean Singing is streaming the fourth track from the record, citing, “Listening to ‘Apparitions Revenge’ is akin to parting a dimensional membrane and becoming enveloped by an otherworldly abysscape shrouded in cold mist, buffeted by the movement of dead things. Wisps of eerie, hypnotic, melodic tones loop beneath the swirling moans and shrieks of phantasms and the cries of lost souls, along with flickering spasms of electronics. The volume ebbs and flows as if that horde of ghostly entities were approaching and then retreating. The experience is both disturbing and trance-inducing. You wonder if you will be released from this ominous sphere of frigid spirits before you become one of them. It doesn’t feel right, but you want to stay… and you begin to puzzle over what will happen next.”

Stream GRIDFAILURE’s “Apparitions Revenge” at No Clean Singing RIGHT HERE.

Uncomfortable, unnerving, and paranoia-inducing, Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here will see release on CD and digital via the in-house-owned Earsplit Compound label faction, The Compound Recs, Friday the 13th of May 2016.

Preordered copies of the eco-wallet CD receive free GRIDFAILURE paraphernalia HERE, and digital preorders include an instant download of “Apparitions Revenge” HERE.

GRIDFAILURE will continue to unfold, expand, and deteriorate upon the public in the coming months with the infusion of other performers, through collaborative releases, the mutation into a live entity and more.

The next day they hit New York City for a matinee shredder at ABC No Rio I Manhattan. The band then heads back out next week, their mini-tour with Organ Dealer beginning in Chesapeake, Virginia, next Thursday, April 14th, with shows the following two nights taking place in Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina.

In May, DIE CHOKING heads back out on a four-day mini-tour — three of the dates with Pyrrhon — followed by shows with Rotten Sound, Ramming Speed, Full Of Hell, and others, as well as Earslaughter Fest Vol 1, Blood Rust II Fest, Full Terror Assault Fest, Rotten Fest, and much more through the rest of the year.

DIE CHOKING’s unhinged debut III LP is available on limited edition LP via The Compound Recs, on CD through The Compound and Selfmadegod Records. Physical orders can be placed at Earsplit Distro/The Compound HERE and the band HERE; order digitally via Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and more.

A video for the track “Dead Figurehead” is currently under construction for release in the coming weeks alongside additional new tour dates and more. DIE CHOKING is also currently writing material for the follow-up to III which will be slated for recording late this year.
