Official press release: Alpha Ghoul is the impending new full-length from Deny The Cross, the punishing powerviolence collaboration uniting current and past members of Spazz, Black Army Jacket, Agents Of Satan, Municipal Waste, and Discordance Axis. Paying its respects to the likes of Assück, Napalm Death, Raw Deal, Crossed Out and Gauze, Deny The Cross' Alpha Ghoul is appropriately short, fast and loud and will see release via the ear assassins at Tankcrimes later this month. As a precursor to its release, today Decibel Magazine premieres sixth cut, "Teens In The Graveyard," issuing of the record, "Alpha Ghoul is an unsettling, dark, and energetic concoction of various elements of death metal, punk, and hardcore. This mix allows for a sound that is both consistent, and yet contains several shades of heaviness beyond the usual blast-and-destroy you'd expect from a powerviolence." Adds vocalist Carlos Ramirez of the latest track on deck: "'Teens In The Graveyard' was inspired by a story I read about how high the teen suicide rates amongst gay teenagers in the US. I was lucky enough to be born and raised in New York City, a place that has been more progressive about these kinds of things compared to the rest of the country, but it's still an issue the US needs to address better."
