THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM OF VIOLENT PUNK ROCK FROM AUTOPSY MASTERMIND CHRIS REIFERT
Californian act Violation Wound was born in a beer and whiskey-soaked basement in June of 2013, 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 honouring the raw, dirty and pissed off ways of the original innovators, while carving out a path all their own.
Featuring Autopsy (& former Abscess) mastermind Chris Reifert on guitars and vocals, alongside Bassist Joe Orterry & drummer Matt O'Connell, With Man In Charge is the band's first release for Peaceville Records, offering psychotic blasts of punk injected madness over 20 tracks. Joining Violation Wound on 'With Man in Charge' are guest appearances including Athenar of US act Midnight, Dennis Dread, plus Dave Hill, having recently collaborated with Chris in the rock act, Painted Doll.
Including themes surrounding society's decline, global corruption and the current destruction of the world including such thought-provoking tracks as 'God's Plan' & 'Humanity Burning', this is "insane music for insane times by insane people".
With Man In Charge was recorded at Earhammer Studios in Oakland, California with Greg Wilkinson (Autopsy), with cover artwork created by Wes Benscoter (Autopsy, Slayer, Nile).
Violation Wound is set to appear at the revered Maryland Deathfest, in May 2018.
