Composed between and throughout bouts of physical and mental duress Desire is a story told in four parts. Desire thematically revolves around realisation and acceptance and is a glimpse into the often complicated and challenging process of personal growth.
Desire is musically more metallic and heavier than previous Choke releases. Tinges of death and thrash metal combine with the band's previous powerviolence and punk influences to form an even bleaker and grinding musical landscape than the one found on 2016's ‘Left With Nothing’ LP.
To achieve the desired audio assault the band enlisted Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues, Xibalba) to mix, Dan Randall (Left For Dead, Magrudergrind, 86 Mentality) to master and Luke Dolan (The Dead Walk!, Life.Love.Regret, Arms Reach) to provide a guest vocal appearance.
Desire brings to a close almost two years of trying to get better. Getting better by accepting the past, letting go and moving forward.
