Peaceville, 180gm vinyl edition in single sleeve packaging., Violation Wound’s 2019 studio album of Hardcore Punk savagery (fronted by Autopsy’s Chris Riefert). Californian act Violation Wound was born in a beer and whiskey soaked basement in June of 2013 and driven to create 100% real punk rock. Nothing trendy, nothing wimpy, nothing pretentious, just fuelled by aggression and kick ass riffs. Violation Wound is not interested in modern, plastic or safe crap, instead honoring the raw, dirty and pissed off ways of the original innovators, while carving out a path all of their own. Continuing on from 2018s With Man in Charge, the returning line-up of Autopsy (& former Abscess) mastermind Chris Reifert on guitars and vocals, alongside Bassist Joe Orterry & drummer Matt O’Connell, indulge in a ferocious attack of violent and head-pounding Punk, rupturing the eardrums with Reifert’s trademark rabid delivery . Recorded at Hyde St. Studios in San Francisco, Ca, in July 2019 & engineered by Sam Zuerner, Dying to Live, Living to Die is a sneering and unrelenting assault on the current world climate amid its demise, and the continuing deterioration of minds & societies. The artwork was created once more by Wes Benscoter (Autopsy, Slayer, Nile), with another stellar dark & morbid classic.
