Chelsea Grin vocalist and co-founder Alex Koehler chooses Six Songs To Die With.
We have neither the budget nor the imagination of BBC Radio, so we've borrowed from their Desert Island Discs program to bring you our own scaled down version, dubbed Six Songs To Die With. We ask a noteworthy musical guest to select the six songs they'd be stranded with on an obligatory desert island. Hypothetically, said guest will be dying on this island, so they've been advised to choose wisely. Selections appear in no particular order.
Since forming in 2007, Utah deathcore band Chelsea Grin has methodically risen the ranks from small tour opener to frequent headliner with their last album cracking the U.S. Top 30 albums. As such, it seemed like a good idea to ask Chelsea Grin frontman and founding member Alex Koehler to choose Six Songs To Die With.

It Dies Today
"Severed Ties Yield Severed Heads"
: This was my favorite band for years growing up. I'd pick the whole album if I could.
