NECROT: Bay Area Death Cult Announces First Ever European Tour This Fall

by Peyote Gutierrez

“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

Bay Area death cult NECROT will kick off their first ever European tour this fall. Set to commence September 8th at Kill-Town Death Feast, the trek will rumble the stages of nearly three-dozen cities upon its conclusion October 14th. See all confirmed dates below.

NECROT continues to tour in support of their critically-adored Blood Offerings full-length released via Tankcrimes. 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 and continues to reap critical accolades from fans and critics globally.

Decibel Magazine placed Blood Offerings at the #4 spot of their Top 40 Albums Of 2017 hailing a record, “pure and brilliant enough in its relentless, multifaceted attack to resonate across subgenres and serve as one of the true unifying heavy metal records of 2017.” Revolver awarded the record the #18 position of their 20 Best Albums of 2017 writing, “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.”

Blood Offerings comes shrouded in the unhallowed cover art of Marald Van Haasteren (Bolt Thrower, Baroness) and is out now on CD, LP, and digitally on Tankcrimes and on cassette through Sentient Ruin Laboratories.

Forged in 2011, NECROT — founded by current and former members of Acephalix, Vastum, Saviours, Watch Them Die, Atrament, and more — unleashed the audio bone-crush of 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.

“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

 “Fans of genre forefathers Bolt Thrower, Carcass, Benediction, and Master will be in familiar territory with NECROT’s back-to-basics brutality and the relentless hammering of solid, headbanging groove and trademark brutal yet articulate vocal style of masters Ingram, Willets and Greenway.” — Team Rock

“With an ear for old-school death metal aesthetics and blood-curdling extremes, NECROT rarely ease off the throttle, letting their tremolo riffs and percussive gallop do much of the talking. Still, amid all the hack-and-slash ferocity are some excellent songs. This exercise in aesthetic destruction is too much fun not to revisit repeatedly.” — Treble

“Blood Offerings offers enough simplicity and succinctness, delivered with the potency of a knife to the chest, to find its way into the collections of heavy music fans who are typically unfamiliar with death metal, a genre that’s an acquired taste, to be sure.” — Blabbermouth
