Southern Lord asks you all to rise and give praise to the almighty ASSCHAPEL, as the label honors the legacy of this defunct throng of Southern thrash prophets, today releasing the cult’s collected discography with Total Destruction (1999-2006).
Behold the only remaining relic of ASSCHAPEL‘s existence: the band’s thirty-one wretched tracks of total destruction captured during their lifespan are collected with Total Destruction (1999-2006). This compiled works collection beholds the scriptures found on the band’s Fire And Destruction full-length, the Live Through Destruction video, and more, the works to be bound in a double-LP gatefold-jacketed package with a poster insert, and DVD.
ASSCHAPEL’s Total Destruction (1999-2006) is out today; stream the entire record and take part in its consumption right HERE.
Physical orders for Total Destruction (1999-2006) can be placed HERE.
At turn of the 21st Century a Chapel of Ass arose from the buckle of shit known as the Bible Belt, Nashville, Tennessee. Built upon the crushed dreams of many aspiring country singers off music row, some local dudes accidentally formed the Satanic thrash rock juggernaut ASSCHAPEL, only to find themselves self-destructing into hell seven years later without a trace… Yet over the course of seven years this sect played all over the Western world, leaving in their wake crippled vans with wheels flying off, shattered heels, broken noses, torn out nipple rings, maxed out credit cards, on-stage arguments, collapsed house show ceilings, everyone’s clothes falling off at the show, and more, while impressively avoiding search and arrest from the authorities due to shear body odor coming straight from the dirty south.
Posthumously, members have moved on to the ranks of Pelican, The Swan King, Tijuana Goat Ride, Hans Condor, and others, and one of ASSCHAPEL‘s hymns was even featured in a Mazda commercial. This is the legacy which was ASSCHAPEL… Amen.
