Die Choking are a band from Pennsylvania that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of grindcore, power violence and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2014 ep "II" which will be released in September by The Compound.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some blast beats and a good mixture of growls and screams which also takes the music into a more fast and brutal musical direction and the music mixes thrash metal, old school grindcore and power violence together along with a modern touch with all of the songs being very short in length and the ep is only 6 minutes long.
Die Choking remain true to their mixture of grind, power violence and thrash keeping everything in mostly a fast and brutal musical direction, the production sound s very professional and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording while the lyrics cover violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Die Choking and if you are a fan of grindcore, power violence and thrash metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "People Like You" and "Tonsil". 8 out of 10.
