ALL OUT WAR is in the process of completing their new LP, the follow-up to their monstrous Dying Gods EP, with details on the record to be issued in the coming weeks. The band will also support Obituary and Gruesome at Amityville Music Hall in Long Island on May 19th, with additional shows to be announced shortly. Veteran New York metal/hardcore outfit ALL OUT WAR headlined a special one-off show in Brooklyn on Friday, March 24th – the event dubbed Bozzfest, as a benefit for longtime Decibel contributor David Shawn Bosler. If you want to contribute, please consider donating to the Bosler family’s GoFundMe campaign HERE.
Over the Christmas holiday, Bosler, also of black metal act Kosmodemonic, was in a serious car accident that left him with a horrific list of broken bones and injuries, requiring multiple surgeries and putting him on a long road to full rehabilitation. The writer’s friends and cohorts now unite for Bozzfest, to help with his rehabilitative medical bills. On March 24th, 2017, Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn hosted a benefit show, with 100 percent of the money raised going to Bosler’s recovery fund. Decibel has assembled a true, once-in-a-lifetime bill for the cause, topped by a rare live appearance from savage metalcore stalwarts ALL OUT WAR. They were joined by local black metal philosophers Anicon, brutal Philly grinders Die Choking, and the hypnotic soundscapes of Insect Ark.
Engineered and produced by Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Hatebreed, Turmoil) at West West Side Studios and mastered by Alan Douches from West West Side, ALL OUT WAR‘s acclaimed Dying was released in June 2015 through Organized Crime, the record proving that the bandremains one of the leaders of the underground hardcore/metal scene. The record saw the band’s patented groove-laden brutality infused into the searing metal leads and merciless breakdowns they’ve been known for since inception, lyrically focusing on steady downfall of humanity.
ALL OUT WAR will be hitting Europe for a couple of Summer dates in July:
