Captured at Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida and produced by MORBID ANGEL with Erik Rutan, the record delivers eleven pieces of devastatingly dynamic death metal. Rolling Stone hailed a, “cyclone of blastbeat-driven fury punctuated with Azagthoth’s signature heaving, lunging grooves and Eddie Van Halen-on-a-bad-trip solos,” while Metal Injection crowned the record, “one of the band’s most essential efforts,” adding, “the record contains almost wall to wall instant classics, and is not only Steve Tucker’s best album as MORBID ANGEL frontman, but by extension the group’s most genre-defining effort since 1995’s iconic Domination.”

Tankcrimes Takeover:
2/02/2019 Oakland Metro – Oakland, CA [info]
 
GHOUL  Creepsylvania’s favorite masked miscreants released their Dungeon Bastards studio offering in 2016. Standing as Tankcrimes’ first-ever charting record, Dungeon Bastards infectious splatterthrashconsumed Billboard Charts upon its first week of release debuting at #11 on the Heatseekers Chart, #13 on the Top Vinyl Albums Chart, #13 on the Hard Rock Chart, and #27 on the Independent Albums Chart. Most recently, GHOUL united with Brooklyn-based MC/Uncle Howie Records owner, Ill Bill (Non Phixion, Heavy Metal Kings) with Goretex (Non Phixion), for a two-song split seven-inch. 
 
NECROT – Bay Area death practitioners NECROT – founded by current and former members of Acephalix, Vastum, Saviours, Watch Them Die, Atrament, and more – released their critically-adored Blood Offerings full-length last year. Packed with killer riffs, thunderous blast beats and the death-defying leads of Saviours guitarist Sonny Reinhardt,” (Revolver), the record earned the #29 spot on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart and #52 on Billboard’s New Artist Chart upon its first week of release in addition to earning year-end accolades from the likes of Decibel and Revolver magazines among so many others. The band’s appearance at this year’s Tankcrimes Takeover comes in advance of their spot on the eighth annual Decibel Magazine Tour featuring Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, Immolation, and Blood Incantation.
 
BRAINOIL – The Oakland sludge alchemists in BRAINOIL – featuring current and past members of Deathgrave, Laudanum, Graves At Sea, Stormcrow, Grimple, and Watch Them Die, among others – released their long-awaited Singularity To Extinction LP last October. Captured at Earhammer Studios by bassist/vocalist Greg Wilkinson (Deathgrave, ex-Laudanum, ex-Graves At Sea) and mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatright (Tragedy, Necrot) the record stands as BRAINOIL‘s fastest, crustiest, and most monolithic offering to date. “Describing Singularity To Extinction as misanthropic would be an understatement,” wrote Decibel Magazine, “abrasive guitar tones and vocals combined with glacially slow tempos put BRAINOIL‘s latest in the same league as Dystopia, Grief, and Noothgrush.”
 
KICKER  Featuring Pete the Roadie backed by members of Operation Ivy, Dystopia, and Neurosis, KICKER plays UK meets East Bay punk rock inspired by the output of Crass, Bluurg, Mystic, and early Dischord and SST releases. The band’s Pure Drivel full-length will see release next month with further details to be unveiled in the coming days.
 
MORTUOUS – Featuring past and present members of Exhumed, Repulsion, Necrot, and Atrament, MORTUOUS released their Through Wilderness debut last summer. Crowned, “…filthy death metal of the highest order…,” by Decibel, the record includes guest appearances by Chris Reifert and Danny Coralles of Autopsy, Derrel Houdashelt, formerly of Exhumed, and Teresa Wallace of Dreaming Dead, and comes swathed in the cover art of Marald Van Haasteren (Bolt Thrower, Baroness, Necrot). 
 
CONNOISSEUR – Sludge punk/stoner violence trio CONNOISSEUR released their Over The Edge full-length via Tankcrimes in 2017. Boasting fourteen resin-coated burners, Over The Edge is twenty-four minutes of East Coast brutality combined with West Coast mentality, all rolled up with cosmic weed grown in outer space, delivered by an alien race known as The Doctors. 
 
DEATHGRAVE – San Jose deathgrind/punk practitioners DEATHGRAVE – featuring members of Brainoil and Amber Asylum among others – unleashed their So Real, It’s Now full-length last year. Hailed by Decibel for being a, “kaleidoscopic and engrossing mix of traditional brutality and audacious weirdness,” the fourteen-track production was tracked at Earhammer Studiosby guitarist/renowned sound engineer Greg Wilkinson and will burn your ears clear off your face. Proclaimed Metal Wanderlust, “You can smell the bile, taste the puke, and love every second of it.”
 
LOS HUAYCOS  LOS HUAYCOS features ex-members of ’90s Peruvian outfits Asmereir and Metamorphosis with members of Experimental Dental School playing a raucous brand of psychedelic hardcore thrash punk. The word “huayco” comes from the Quechua, which means “depth/valley” and refers to landslides caused by torrential rains in the Andes. You will occasionally find these guys skating a curb in Oakland. LOS HUAYCOS will release their Savage Monstrosities full-length via Tankcrimes next month. Stand by for details.

NECROT unleashed their critically-adored Blood Offerings full-length via Tankcrimes in 2017. Captured by Greg Wilkinson (Vastum, Graves At Sea) and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Gatecreeper), the record earned the #29 spot on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart and #52 on Billboard’s New Artist Chart upon its first week of release. Additionally, Blood Offerings earned year-end accolades from the likes of Decibel Magazine and Revolver and continues to reap the praise of fans and critics globally.
 
NECROT‘s Blood Offerings is out now on CD, digital, and vinyl formats and well a newly-issued deluxe cassette edition. Additionally, Tankcrimes recently repressed the LP (now available on limited-edition splatter or olive vinyl). Find physical orders at THIS LOCATION. Stream Blood Offerings in full at THIS LOCATION where you can also purchase the record digitally.
 
Forged in 2011, NECROT – founded by current and former members of Acephalix, Vastum, Saviours, Watch Them Die, Atrament, and more – unleashed their The Labyrinth full-length in 2016 via Tankcrimes. Spewing forth eight tracks amassed from three hard-to-find and long out-of-print demo tapes, the record reaped critical acclaim from fans and media alike compelled by the band’s unrepentant Autopsy, Bolt Thrower, and Sacrilege worship.
 
“Blood Offerings is all old ground, but it is hallowed earth. We’ve heard everything played on this album before, but we’ve never heard it played quite like this. If you’re that curmudgeon who keeps saying nothing can displace your aging death metal album collection, it might be finally time to buy a new record.” – Decibel
 
“Packed with killer riffs, thunderous blast beats and the death-defying leads of Saviours guitarist Sonny Reinhardt, the debut album from this hotly touted Oakland death metal trio bristles with a raw intensity that’s frequently lost in the modern era of triggered, overproduced extremity. By keeping it real, NECROT keep it awesome.” – Revolver
 
“Metaphorically, it’s like putting your ear up to the chest of a rotting corpse and listening to the parasites eat it from the inside out. NECROT has recorded an album so putrescent you can almost smell it.” – Paste Magazine
