"My Damnation is coming! We are excited to announce the preorder of our new record on MerchNow. We asked our fans on Facebook what they'd want and we got a lot of great feedback, so we wanted to make sure there was something for everyone," said guitarist Jaek Harmond.

Produced by Zeuss (The Acacia Strain, Hatebreed, The Red Chord), My Damnation is a more direct and diverse assault featuring Chelsea Grin's signature guttural vocals, whiplash-inducing breakdowns, and Middle Eastern-flavored melodies. Guitar-wise, the team of three have upped the chops and widened their palette. Nowhere is this more evident than on the meditative classical acoustic guitar piece "Kharon." "It's completely crazy," Dan says enthusiastically, "No one expects that but our guitarists love classical guitar." The album's final track, "All Hail the Fallen King," is a special track for the band as it features Whitechapel vocalist Phil Bozeman trading verses with Alex. The 10 track album has a conceptual bend to it, based loosely on being condemned to hell and finding your way out to salvation. The band recently filmed a music video for "My Damnation" with director Ramon Boutviseth (All That Remains, Trivium) that will premiere soon.

Chelsea Grin has received numerous accolades from fans and press alike including acoveted Alternative Press "AP Recommends" column and a #2 spot in the September 2010 AP Readers Chart.
