Tricks of the trade come easy for Die Choking, as the expected grindcore traits roar out without blinking. Blast beats and maniacal riffs flutter around like a flock of startled birds, quickly shifting from one section to the next within the time it takes cognitive processes to adapt. Hardcore themes are more palpable during "Non-Yielder," whereas "People Like You" makes a seamless shift to lands more associated with hardcore punk before it launches back to full-blooded grindcore madness within its thirty seconds of existence. "Civilian" breaks out of the blast-laden mold the most by turning the vessel on a mid-paced stomp. Die Choking's link between the sounds and influences of grindcore remain key to the musical charge, never once putting their feet on the brake.
Split that up for six minutes, and try not to die choking.
