Pennsylvania's Die Choking have returned with a new album continuing the mixture of grind, crust, power violence and thrash of previous recordings and this is a review of their album "III" which was released by the Compound.
A very fast and brutal grindcore sound starts off the album along with somr blast beats before adding in aggressive vocals that mix thrash and crust together and you can also hear a great amount of power violence elements throughout the recording along with all of the musical instruments all having a very powerful sound to them.
Some of the riffs bring in a small amount of melody and all of the songs are very short in length and none even get close to 2 minutes and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are very technical sounding and as the album progresses the music starts bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some songs also bring in a small amount of growls and the music remains very heavy and brutal throughout the recording.
Die Choking creates another album that takes the fastest and rawest styles of crust, grind and power violence and mix them in with some thrash influences and technical guitar playing which makes the music stand out a bit more, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover social political themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Die Choking and if you are a fan of grind, crust and power violence, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dwell" "The Prince Of Population" "Dead Figurehead" and "Telos". 8 out of 10.
