CHRIS REIFERT's VIOLATION WOUND: 'Fearmonger' And 'State Of Alarm' Songs Streaming

April 25, 2018

VIOLATION WOUND, the punk rock/metal band formed by Chris Reifert (DEATH, ABSCESS, AUTOPSY) on guitar and vocals, will release its new album, "With Man In Charge", on April 27 via Peaceville Records.

Two songs from the disc, "Fearmonger" and "State Of Alarm", can be streamed below.

VIOLATION WOUND was born in a beer- and whiskey-soaked basement in June of 2013, driven to create 100 percent 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 their own.

Featuring Reifert alongside bassist Joe Orterry and drummer Matt O'Connell, "With Man In Charge" is VIOLATION WOUND's first release for Peaceville, offering psychotic blasts of punk-injected madness over 20 tracks. Joining VIOLATION WOUND on "With Man In Charge" are guests Athenar of U.S. act MIDNIGHT and Dave Hill, having recently collaborated with Chris in the rock act PAINTED DOLL. The disc was recorded at Earhammer Studios in Oakland, California with Greg Wilkinson (AUTOPSY),featuring cover artwork created by Wes Benscoter (AUTOPSY, SLAYER, NILE).

Reifert states: "We at VIOLATION WOUND headquarters are really fucking psyched to be working with Peaceville Records.

"We poured a lot of outrage, madness, aggression, and just plain ass-kicking into our new album, 'With Man In Charge', and we think our intentions will be heard loud and clear for anyone who gets their eardrums wrapped around this quickfire distorted assault. This isn't just an attempt to relive old punk days gone by or to latch on to whatever the hell people are calling hardcore these days. It's insane music for insane times by insane people."

The first track to be released is "Stalemate Suicide". Reifert states about the song: "Ah, humans. If only we could learn to deal with each other intelligently instead of putting ourselves on the brink of potential nuclear war over toxic egos and playground insults. Should we build a bigger bomb? What could possibly go wrong?"
