GRIDFAILURE: Further Layers Of Societal Collapse Available For Free Download; Drought Stick Confirmed

gridfailure-idiothead_spectre_vomit_web

GRIDFAILURE‘s Further Layers Of Societal Collapse EP has infected the masses through free digital download.

With seven tracks harnessing twenty-six minutes of harrowing dementia, Further Layers Of Societal Collapse meshes the ghostly elements of dark ambient, power electronics, and industrial metal with more percussive elements and guitars than the Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here debut, thundering with confrontational and exploratory vocal wrath, all meeting on a rudderless course where anything goes. Contributions from cohorts BJ Allen (Full Scale Riot) and Pete Tsakiris reflect the first recorded GRIDFAILURE collaborations to see release, all traits that repeat heavily in the act’s other upcoming titles.

Download Further Layers Of Societal Collapse for free at Bandcamp HERE and HERE and Soundcloud HERE.

GRIDFAILURE’s recent collaboration with Walking Bombs – the Tad Doyle-mastered “Demagogue” – is playing HERE.

A limited cassette version of Further Layers Of Societal Collapse will be produced and released through The Compound Recs. shortly.

The haunted works of GRIDFAILURE are the experimental runoff of David Brenner (Earsplit, ex-Theologian, ex-Heidnik), created through the unhinged abuse of countless instruments field recording tactics. Having been incessantly recording and collaborating with an array of henchpersons over recent months, the outfit is currently completing a newly identified release, classified Drought Stick, which explores more spacious, echoing movements fit for intoxicated wasteland somnambulance, and The visionary realms of the cannibalistic Teeth Collection album continue to take shape, as well as a split cassette release with Richmond-based ambient soloist Never Presence Forever, several videos, and even more.

GRIDFAILURE Issues “Digital Crush” At Metal Riot; Further Layers Of Societal Collapse EP Nears Free Samhain Release

gridfailure-idiothead_spectre_vomit_web

Hostile alchemist GRIDFAILURE has completed the Further Layers Of Societal Collapse EP impending its free digital distribution on Samhain 2016, leaking new track “Digital Crush” through Metal Riot.

GRIDFAILURE is the auditory harvest of David Brenner (Earsplit, ex-Theologian, ex-Heidnik), who abuses dozens of instruments, brewing a haunted apocalypse aura. The outfit’s Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here debut was released in May via The Compound Recs. With a second album, Teeth Collection, nearing completion, Further Layers Of Societal Collapse provides some insight of the bizarre directions the unit’s output is taking. The use of field recordings infusing elements of nature and civilization into the mix carries into the new material, which infuses more percussive elements and guitars than the debut. Contributions from cohorts BJ Allen (Full Scale Riot) and Pete Tsakiris reflect the first GRIDFAILURE collaborations to see release, a trait that lies heavily in the upcoming releases.

GRIDFAILURE’s Further Layers Of Societal Collapse delivers nearly a half-hour of unharnessed dementia, infiltrating additional realms of biomechanical madness, meshing ghostly and fractured elements of dark ambient, power electronics, and industrial metal with the confrontational wrath of tectonic hardcore on a rudderless course where anything goes.

This confrontational dementia is depicted in “Digital Crush,” playing at Metal Riot RIGHT HERE.

Hear the EP’s “Woodlands Of Self-Impalement” via Loudwire HERE, and the GRIDFAILURE-infused anti-Trump “Demagogue” by Walking Bombs, mastered by Tad Doyle, at Blow The Scene HERE.

GRIDFAILURE will offer Further Layers Of Societal Collapse as a free download on October 31st through Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and more, with a limited cassette version to follow in November; find your Walkman ASAP.

Orders for GRIDFAILURE‘s Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here eco-wallet CD receive free paraphernalia HERE; digitally the album can be found at Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes, and most others.

Also join the macabre lounge/fight act for the end of everything on GRIDFAILURE’s upcoming Teeth Collection album, split with Never Presence Forever, and multiple other upcoming splits, EPs, and collaborations, all likely to see release by the end of the year.

GRIDFAILURE: Track From Further Layers Of Societal Collapse EP Premiered At Loudwire; Collaborative Track With Walking Bombs Streaming At Blow The Scene

gridfailure-idiothead_spectre_vomit_web

A new track GRIDFAILURE is now playing at Loudwire, as the hostile alchemist announces the impending free digital EP from which the sample has been extracted. The outfit also declares several additional recordings nearing completion, including its second full-length.

The trials initiated as Teeth Collection have since taken a new direction, these recordings now encapsulated in the second GRIDFAILURE full-length album of the same name. Though the title of the series has transformed, the free EP series continues as planned, the first of which is in its final stages. Further Layers Of Societal Collapse presents several random recordings which see the outfit’s works which infiltrate further realms of biomechanical madness, meshing ghostly and fractured elements of dark ambient, power electronics, and industrial metal with the confrontational wrath of tectonic hardcore on a rudderless course where anything goes.

Loudwire unloads an early track from GRIDFAILURE’s Further Layers Of Societal Collapse into the masses through its Rumblings From The Underground column, offering “Woodlands Of Self-Impalement” for your auditory displeasure. The write-up issues, “’Woodlands of Self-Impalement’ is seven-and-a-half minutes of brooding, ominous torture that begs for something catastrophic to happen, but it doesn’t — it just lurks in the shadows as you frantically survey your surroundings, just waiting for the axe to fall, pissing yourself with nervous anticipation. True apocalyptic nihilism at its electronic worst (that means best for all you uninitiated)!”

Stream “Woodlands Of Self-Impalement” through Loudwire at THIS LOCATION.

GRIDFAILURE will offer Further Layers Of Societal Collapse as a free download on October 30th through Bandcamp HERE.

1. A Severing Of Ties
2. Digital Crush
3. Android Infusion

GRIDFAILURE recently collaborated with neighboring upstate New York project Walking Bombs, for the anti-Trump anthem “Demagogue,” which is set to appear on the experimental punk/rock outfit’s impending Peace Quest EP. The EP is mastered by Tad Doyle (Tad, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth) and the new track was premiered at Blow The Scene this week RIGHT HERE.

DIE CHOKING: Intense New Video For “Dead Figurehead” Playing At Clrvynt; Band Confirmed For Maryland Deathfest, 1Fest, And More

die-choking-cohen-full-terror-assault-web-photo-by-sickend-designs[photo by Sickend Designs]

Philadelphia’s unhinged grind squad DIE CHOKING has just issued the first official video from their lauded and unstoppable III LP through an exclusive premiere at Clrvynt, and as always, announces another round of upcoming live actions.

The rapid visual deployment for “Dead Figurehead” is as intense and warped as DIE CHOKING’s auditory explosiveness on the track. A whirlwind of international leaders and political propaganda is delivered through a white-knuckled ride through a world of radical dementia, the video directed by Mitchell Luna (Maruta, Noisear) and Josh Mahesh (Heikousen, Fraud).

DIE CHOKING issues, “‘Dead Figurehead’ is a fuck-off to intolerance and pushes against the rising neo-fascism we are seeing in the US right now. There is a transparency and widespread popular criticism of American politics that we haven’t really seen since the 1960’s. The current candidacy has been an eye-opening mirror for Americans. In the end, it seems elected politicians are frequently not the leaders we want or need. Unfortunately, they may be the leaders we deserve.”

Heavy music portal Clrvynt has hosted the premiere of the new “Dead Figurehead” video, stating, “Despite the ample gross-outs, DIE CHOKING‘s latest video isn’t about shock value — it’s about waking the hell up and smelling the sweet, rancid fumes emanating from our collective dumpster fire, which grows stronger by the day.”

See DIE CHOKING’s “Dead Figurehead” at Clrvynt RIGHT HERE.

Following DIE CHOKING’s first European tour early this year alongside Paris-based Department Of Correction, the tour will now repeat itself on US shores. 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 surrounded by and includes a rash of shows with the likes of Noisear, Gadget, Pyrrhon, Trap Them, Yautja, Cloud Rat, and many others. DIE CHOKING will also take part in the multi-state 1Fest in January, including successive shows with Cloud Rat in New York City, Syracuse, and Boston. The band has also been confirmed for Maryland Deathfest 2017, set to appear with the likes of Autopsy, Insect Warefare, Siege, Warmaster, PLF, Iron Lung, and more.

One of 2015’s most unstoppable albums, DIE CHOKING’s III was initially released on limited vinyl through New York City-area-based The Compound Recs. after which it was licensed for release on CD through Poland’s Selfmadegod Records. Brand new merch designs and more are available through DIE CHOKING right HERE, vinyl and CDs can be ordered through The Compound HERE, and the CD is available in Europe through Selfmadegod HERE.

Writing for DIE CHOKING’s second full-length IV is underway with album pre-production currently happening. Additional info will be released in the weeks ahead.

DIE CHOKING: Philadelphia Hypergrind Trio To Storm Full Terror Assault Fest This Weekend; Summer/Fall Tour Dates Expanded

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!”

DIE CHOKING Tour Dates:
8/26/2016 Moody’s Point – Bloomington, IL w/Kelut
8/27/2016 Full Terror Assault – Cave-In-Rock, IL w/ Rotten Sound, Dying Fetus, Cephalic Carnage, Organ Dealer [info]

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.”

The music is suicidal, destructive nonchalance writhing in pain and apathy, all trapped in the same moment. CLASSHOLE have made a soundtrack to a descent into despair.” – New Noise

“…sick, dirty, anarchic, caustic….” – The Examiner

“…pure, unadulterated anger….” – Rock Shock Pop

 “…fifteen tracks of angry, fast-paced punk laced with old-school hardcore breakdowns… There is no poetry, no pomp and certainly no circumstance. Merely an album of raw anthems replete with sing-along aspects and curb stomping brutality. The revolution is now and the soundtrack to the black bandana faced throwing of molotov cocktails will be CLASSHOLE.” – Nine Circles

DIE CHOKING will forge their way into Canada on their maiden live excursion in the country this weekend, confirmed to take part in Earslaughter Fest Vol 1 in Montreal alongside Macabre, Birdflesh, Malignant Tumor, and many others this Saturday, June 4th. Their performance at the fest on Saturday will be preceded by a show in Worcester on Friday evening, and followed by a set in Binghamton on Sunday.

Following their European tour together in February, the dates for DIE CHOKING’s upcoming US Fall tour with Paris-based Department Of Correction have also been announced. The shredding will begin on October 20th and storm down the entire East Coast, with the final show taking place October 30th at The Fest 15 in Gainesville alongside Fucking Invincible, Coke Bust, Braid, and tons more.

Additional one-off shows around the Fall tour and more are in the works, so as always, stand by for a further barrage of DIE CHOKING tour dates in the weeks ahead.

DIE CHOKING’s III is available on limited edition colored wax via The Compound Recs, and on CD through The Compound and Selfmadegod Records available HERE, and digitally via Bandcamp, iTunes, and more.

A recent interrogation with the band was recently published in the Philly Voice HERE.
