Over the Christmas holiday, Bosler, also of black metal act Kosmodemonic, was in a serious car accident that left him with a horrific list of broken bones and injuries, requiring multiple surgeries and putting him on a long road to full rehabilitation. The writer's friends and cohorts now unite for Bozzfest, to help with his rehabilitative medical bills. On March 24th, 2017, Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn is hosting a benefit show, with 100 percent of the money raised going to Bosler's recovery fund. Decibel has assembled a true, once-in-a-lifetime bill for the cause, topped by a rare live appearance from savage metalcore stalwarts ALL OUT WAR. They're joined by local black metal philosophers Anicon, brutal Philly grinders Die Choking, and the hypnotic soundscapes of Insect Ark.
There will also be some one-of-a-kind items up for raffle to help Bosler and his family. The collective range and power of the bands who have generously donated their time and support to this fund is a testament to Shawn's reach in the world of extreme metal and beyond, and we hope locals will join us at Saint Vitus Bar to support him by taking in an amazing show! Tickets are just $15 and available at THIS LOCATION.
If you can't make it, but still want to contribute, please consider donating to the Bosler family's GoFundMe campaign HERE.
ALL OUT WAR is in the process of completing their new LP, the follow-up to their monstrous Dying Gods EP, with details on the record to be issued in the coming weeks. The band will also support Obituary and Gruesome on Long Island on May 19th, with additional shows to be announced shortly.

Engineered and produced by Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Hatebreed, Turmoil) at West West Side Studios and mastered by Alan Douches from West West Side, ALL OUT WAR's acclaimed Dying was released in June 2015 through Organized Crime, the record proving that the bandremains one of the leaders of the underground hardcore/metal scene. The record saw the band's patented groove-laden brutality infused into the searing metal leads and merciless breakdowns they've been known for since inception, lyrically focusing on steady downfall of humanity.
