After their Summer 2014 US tour with BUDD DWYER, our friends of DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTION are returning to the European stages still in support of their 2014 “Monsters!” split with TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION, C.O.A.G, MISERABLE FAILURE, UNSU and INFECTED SOCIETY.

With Relapse records’ PYRRHON invited to headline the tour, this will be DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTION’s fifth European road trip, bringing both bands to five European countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland, United Kingdom) in sixteen days from April 10 to 25.

On a sidenote, DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTION have also recently been confirmed for the OBSCENE EXTREME AMERICA festival in Montreal, Canada, on August 2015. An accompanying August 2015 tour of the US East Coast will be announced later this year.

Kaotoxin is proud to announce that CinC (formerly known as Carnival in Coal) has signed to the French label. CinC is the live band put together and fronted by ex-Carnival In Coal singer Arno Strobl (We All Die [laughing], 6:33 & Arno Strobl…) to pay homage to his former act.

CinC, which features past and present members of 6:33, Infected Society, Yyrkoon, John Makay, Mercyless, Orakle, Gorod, and Fleshdoll, toured throughout 2014 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Carnival In Coal’s debut full-length, Vivalavida. The album was performed in its entirety on the tour.

The tour took the band to two great festivals (the Czech Republic’s Brutal Assault and France’s Motocultor Fest),  as well as many French cities. One of those cities, Amiens, is where it all began for the group several years earlier, and the show was filmed with seven cameras.  The resulting DVD, VivaLIVEvida (a tribute to the music of Carnival in Coal), will be released in advance at the farewell gig, which will take place at Kaotoxin’s second annual festival, KaotoxinFest#II, on December 5th, 2015 in Lille, France. The date for the Kaotoxin DVD release will be announced later in the year.

VivaLIVEvida DVD line-up:

Arno Strobl – vocals (We All Die (laughing), ex-6:33 & Arno Strobl)

Fabien Desgardins (Infected Society, ex-Yyrkoon) – guitars

Romain Caron (John Makay) – guitars

Matthieu Merklen (Mercyless) – bass

Emmanuel Rousseau (6:33, Orakle) – keyboards and samples)

Samuel Santiago (ex-Gorod, Fleshdoll) – drums

DEEP IN HATE – Signs With Kaotoxin Records

Kaotoxin records is proud to announce the inking of a multi-album deal with French Deathcore masters DEEP IN HATE.

Born in 2004 and having released two full-lengths before signing to Kaotoxin, Deep In Hate, who features Nicolas Basto (ex-Aborted / L’Esprit du Clan) on drums, evolved from a technical Deathcore outfit to a much more personal brand of melodic and catchy, yet still technical, brand of Deathcore. The band’s focus is on writing catchy tunes and developing an oppressive atmosphere by blending dark melodic hooks with technical leads and wall-crushing breakdowns in a very dark, suffocating and yet utterly efficient way.

Touring with the likes of Black Dahlia Murder, appearances at Sonisphere and other European festivals and an inherent desire to push the boundaries of brutality to unimagined levels have all lead Deep In Hate down an evolutionary path that plateaus this June with their Kaotoxin Records debut, Chronicles of Oblivion.

With a massive production and artwork by Above Chaos (Hellfest, Bethlehem, Nightfall), Chronicles of Oblivion features nine heavy and intense, yet melodic song-oriented tracks. Rooted less in tech-metal than previous efforts, Deep In Hate seek to develop a more hook-laden approach to Deathcore. This shift is demonstrated in the new music video they’ve unleashed in support of Chronicles of Oblivion. Recorded live at Sonisphere 2013, the video for “New Republic” can be seen below:


Chronicles of Oblivion – Track Listing:


Genesis of Void

The Cattle Procession

Altars of Lies

New Republic

The Unheard Prayers

The Divide

Wingless Gods*


*features guest vocals by Sven de Caluwé (Aborted)


With this brilliant new release Deep In Hate morphs influences from bands like Whitechapel, Despised Icon, Aborted, Gojira and Decapitated into a sound that’s all their own. The band aims to conquer new territories and enlarge an already impressive following by touring as much as they can everywhere in support of this massive new album.

Available as a limited edition (1,000 copies at first press) deluxe DigiSleeve CD, Chronicles of Oblivion will be available worldwide on June 3.

Pre-orders for the album and exclusive bundle deals with brand new merch will start on May 6, at the Kaotoxin Web
