Chokehold update

British based metallers Chokehold have issued the following update regarding their sophomore effort ‘Sweet Sense of Genocide’:

“Just a quick update to let you know that we’re approaching the end of the writing process for our new album, which we have decided to title ‘Sweet Sense of Genocide’. The sessions have gone incredibly well, and with Dave ‘Love Hammer’ Andrews joining us on guitar we really feel we’ve begun to unlock a whole new dimension of the Chokehold sound. The band is a tighter, more determined unit than ever before, and we’re chomping at the bit to get this thing out there.

We hit Warehouse Studios in February for the recording and can’t wait lay down what is sure to be a monster of a record. Steve ‘Geezer’ Watkins will be in the hot seat and we’re delighted to have him on board. If anybody can maximise the full potential of this beast, it’s undoubtedly him. Rest assured that it shall represent a huge step forward both musically and personally as we push into the new year and beyond.”

Chokehold’s debut full-length ‘The Killing Has Begun’ was released in April 2006 via Casket Records. Produced by Nick Hemingway (Cancer, Fony, Desecration) the album received a string of sterling reviews both at home and abroad, with the song ‘Faith of Fear’ and its subsequent video receiving airplay on Total Rock Radio and Scuzz TV alike. Kerrang! Magazine also awarded the band a favourable 4K review for their role as headline act on 2006’s Casket Lullabies Tour alongside labelmates Sinocence and Sandstone.
