After years of angst-ridden anticipation from a ravenous fanbase, Denver's grindcore gargantuans CATHETER are preparing to unleash their first full-length album since 2005, celebrating 15 years of perpetuating their brutal 303-style grind.
The follow-up to their 2005-released sophomore album, Dimension 303, amidst an incredible arsenal of split releases, EPs and demos over the years, CATHETER's new opus is so obliteratingly heavy that upon first listen you'll quickly forgive them for the delay since the last album, and immediately tear your own head off in utter joy. As always appropriately entitled, Southwest Doom Violence surges with CATHETER's pissed-off style, wrangling 17 cataclysmic tunes in only twice as many minutes, an immediate adrenaline-booster for fans of classic, ripping grindcore in the tradition of Repulsion, Terrorizer, Phobia, early Napalm Death, with crust and doom metal infiltrating the mix.
Southwest Doom Violence is confirmed for North American release this May 1st, once again via Selfmadegod Records, who released CATHETER's Preamable To Oblivion and Dimension 303albums. The cover art was created by Adam Azeris/Milk and Gasoline.
