THE CONVALESCENCE will release their This Is Hell full-length September 1st. The ten-track offering was produced by John Burke (Forever In Terror, Captain Kid, etc.), at Vibe Studios, mixed and mastered by Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy, Despised Icon, Beyond Creation, etc.) at The Grid and comes wrapped in the macabre cover art of Coki Greenway.
