Long-running New York-based hardcore/metal stalwarts, ALL OUT WAR, declare 2015 as the year of the Dying Gods, as the quintet prepares its latest set of recordings for release this Summer.
Since 1991, ALL OUT WAR has assaulted the masses with their punishing metallic hardcore aggression, and through a multitude of recordings, including a pile of singles and EPs, their 1997 debut LP, Truth In The Age Of Lies on Germany’s Gain Ground Records, and four subsequent LPs on Chicago’s Victory Records — For Those Who Were Crucified(1998), Condemned To Suffer (2003), Assassins In The House Of God (2007) and Into The Killing Fields (2010). Their arsenal of recorded misanthropy and waves of worldwide touring, has led the band to become a respected staple act for metal and hardcore fans everywhere. In 2013, after several years off the grid, ALL OUT WAR came crushing back with the reunited For Those Who Were Crucified-era line up and laid waste at both This Is Hardcore Fest and 2014’s A389 Records Bash. The momentum has been growing ever since.
Now nearing the band’s two-and-a-half decade mark, ALL OUT WAR proves that age has only refined the band’s killing capabilities on Dying Gods, a brand new EP which the band is about to unleash upon humanity early this Summer. Dying Gods sees the band return to the sound of For Those Who Were Crucified, and just like that timelessly brutal album, Dying Gods was engineered and produced by Steve Evetts (Hatebreed, Turmoil, Buried Alive, Suicide Silence) at West West Side Studios in New Windsor, New York. The record sees the band bringing five decimating new original tracks and covers of two iconic underground anthems.
In 2015, ALL OUT WAR returns with Dying Gods. You have been warned. Stand by for additional details on the carnivorous sounds of Dying Gods to arise in the coming days.
The crew will continue to bring their malice to the stage in the coming months surrounding the release of Dying Gods, with several high profile festival appearances confirmed on both American and European soil, including a European tour in August. At press time, ALL OUT WAR is confirmed to perform at the 2015 edition of Rain Fest in Seattle, Washington the weekend of May 22nd alongside the likes of Judge, Chain Of Strength, Angel Du$T, Baptists, Rotting Out, Turnstile, Code Orange, Expire and countless others. Then in August, the band hits Europe for a nine-city tour. The Dying Gods Europe Tour 2015 runs from August 7th through 15th, and includes performances at Still Cold Fest in Germany with Nasty, No Turning Back, Lifeless, Naysayer and more, a set at Ieperfest in Belgium with the likes of Biohazard, Caliban, Entombed AD, Judge, Pentagram, Touche Amore, Cryptopsy, GBH and Poison Idea, and the massive Motocultor Fest in France alongside Sepultura, Tankard, Six Feet Under, Trouble, Pentagram, Agalloch, The Ocean and countless others.

ALL OUT WAR’s musical style is an unrelenting metal assault of the mid-‘80s German thrash scene colliding head-on with the crossover sound of Carnivore and the Cro-Mags. The two styles are as different as they come, yet the band seamlessly unites them into a purely seething, tension-filled alloy rife with divebomber leads and merciless breakdowns, unmatched by today’s standards. Featured is their trademark social commentary on such subjects as political and religious hypocrisy as well as social apathy of a materialistic population. They attack the relevant subjects of corruption of organized religion, ecocide, and the degradation and exploitation of the weak, set to a soundtrack appropriate for the end of days.
