about

CHOKEHOLD initially formed in 1991 as a straight-edge hardcore band. Over their brief yet prolific existence, the band evolved into one of most outspoken political bands of the 90’s underground scene: tackling topics as veganism, gay rights, sexism, institutionalized racism and police violence years before it became commonplace in the modern hardcore scene.

This is CHOKEHOLD’s classic 1994 EP 'Instilled’ completely restored and re-mastered.

RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF: Culture / Earth Crisis / Raid
