Scotty over at TankCrimes has some really killer stuff coming out. First up is the new LP / CD from weed obsessed rockers CANNIBAS CORPSE entitled 'Beneath Grow Lights Thou Shall Rise' which promises to follow in the tradition laid down by their earlier releases where each song is inspired by a classic Death Metal track. This time around they puff bong smoke in the face of MORBID ANGEL and DEICIDE. Look for the LP and CD on July 12th.
Also from TankCrimes comes OBSESSOR a new thrash metal / punk band that claims influences in the ENGLISH DOGS and CELTIC FROST. Both bands are easily detected in OBSESSOR's thrashing punkcore as is ANIHILATED and even PARASYTIC. All the instruments and vocals are done TOXIC HOLOCAUST style by one dude, Brandon "The Obsessor" Ferrall who's name may ring a bell from his time with GOVERNMENT WARNING, MUNICIPAL WASTE, and the Vinyl Conflict Record Store in Richmond VA. There is a cassette coming out in a couple of weeks and many more releases planned for OBSESSOR through TankCrimes. You can listen to a couple of sneak peak tracks and even download them here; I did and am cranking OBSESSOR now!
If hardcore is more your cup of tea TankCrimes has you covered here as well with a Denmark's NIGHT FEVER. NIGHT FEVER play catchy, yet rage filled hardcore. Their 'New Blood' record will be available on LP and cassette and they have US shows coming up the east coast.
