Necrot Releasing “Blood Offerings” Album

This June, Oakland, California-based classic death metal band Necrot will unleash the fetid fruits of the “Blood Offerings” full-length album.

Set for release on June 9th, 2017 on CD, LP, and digitally via Tankcrimes (and on cassette in partnership with Sentient Ruin Laboratories), the eight tracks comprising “Blood Offerings” were captured by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer (Vastum, Graves At Sea), mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Gatecreeper), and will come sheathed in the unholy cover craftings of Marald Van Haasteren (Bolt Thrower, Baroness).

“‘Blood Offerings’ is the result of six years of hard work and is our first full-length record to be released by Tankcrimes,” relays drummer Chad Gailey. “The songwriting and performance on these eight songs is a step up from what people have heard previously. We feel that with this album, we have accomplished what we intended to create many years ago. It is always a great experience working with Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer and Scotty Heath at Tankcrimes because of the hard work and care they both put into each project they are a part of. We are thankful to everyone who has supported Necrot to get to this point.”

Guitarist Sonny Reinhardt agrees, “We made the best album ever made and can’t wait to hit the road and kill you all.” Adds guitarist Luca Indrio, “This is a death metal classic and you should fucking have it!”

1. The Blade
2. Rather Be Dead
3. Shadow And Light
4. Blood Offerings
5. Empty Hands
6. Beneath
7. Breathing Machine
8. Layers Of Darkness

CANNABIS CORPSE & GHOUL – SPLATTERHASH (SPLIT)

Releases January 7 through Tankcrimes Records. Ah, Cannabis Corpse and Ghoul: one, a weed-themed classic death metal worship band, the other, a Giallo-obsessed thrashing group of gorehounds. Whoever thought to marry these two bands in split-record matrimony should be applauded. At least, that’s what I thought before I heard the songs. Cannabis Corpse perform the […]

Necroven To Release “Descent Into The Cryptic Chasm” EP

Blood Harvest has announced November 8th as the international release date for Necroven’s “Descent Into The Cryptic Chasm” 7″ EP. The label comments:

“The sole work of Jonathan Reina, Necroven was formed in Spain during the summer of 2011. Created with the desire to play the most putrid and heaviest death metal, influenced by the most wicked sounds and without regrets, Necroven lives to spread terror and pestilence through his music.

“Thus far, Necroven has released two demo tapes – Perpetual Scorn and Hidden Blasphemies, both in 2011 – and a full-length entitled Worship Of Humiliation, in 2012, all building a sick ‘n’ solid reputation for Reina in the international underground. Now, Necroven continues that onward ‘n’ downward onslaught with the brand-new Descent Into The Cryptic Chasm 7”.

“Featuring two new songs exclusive to this EP, Descent Into The Cryptic Chasm sounds very much like its title: twisting and throbbing, forever churning and always grinding, seemingly from the darkest depths, Classic Death Metal Sickness by the very definition.”

The track listing is:

1. Descent Into The Cryptic Chasm
2. Weapons of Degration
