Forced Asphyxiation / Bio

Hailing from Boston, MA, Forced Asphyxiation is bringing back old school death metal with new school grind edge. With lyrical themes personifying their imagination from horror inducing pot plants and deep seeded trauma, the four-piece has made a name for themselves with both their brutal music and innovative horror ganja-themed merchandise.

The band has a new full-length titled ‘Terrifying Hydroponic Carnage’ due out spring 2014, which will feature 9 new tracks. This will be the band’s first full-length and comes on the heels of two successful demos from 2011.

Formed in 2007, the gruesome foursome has become tour veterans throughout the east coast and Midwest. Forced Asphyxiation have come up in the Boston metal scene along with bands such as Abnormality, Dysentery, and Sexcrement, among others, playing numerous music festivals together including: New Jersey Death Fest 4, New York Death Fest 1, Brutality Reigns Death Fest 2 & 3, Delaware Death Fest 1, and Long Island Crust Fest 2.

In the past three years Forced Asphyxiation has had the opportunity to share the stage with such acts as Cephalic Carnage, Cannabis Corpse, Ghoul, Phobia, Gorgasm, Internal Bleeding, Deceased, Putrid Pile, Mortal Decay, Dehumanized, Visceral Disgorge, Shawn Whitaker of Viral Load/Insidious Decrepancy, & Criminal Element and show no signs of slowing down in 2014.
