Graf Orlock's new EP, Los Angeles, is out April 10 on Vitriol Records. Of Graf Orlock's Hollywood-obsessed hardcore, sometimes referred to as "cinema-grind", MetalSucks has declared, "Not only is their music as mercilessly murderous as you'd want it to be, but their incorporation of elements from action films is brilliant."

Known for their next-level artwork as well as their music - last year's Doombox EP was housed in a full-size fold-out "boombox" and was named "Packaging of the Century" by Revolver Magazine - Graf Orlock continue to amaze with Los Angeles whose three collectible covers are "shooting range targets" shot up with actual bullets.
