Oakland-based old-school death metal merchants NECROT will return to the road next month on a two-week tour alongside Danish death dealers Phrenelith. The US/Canadian West Coast journey will commence on February 3rd in Los Angeles, California and run through February 18th in Oakland, California, where they will support Marduk and Incantation, with an included stop at Famine Fest in Portland, Oregon.
NECROT – featuring within its ranks current and former members of Acephalix, Vastum, Saviours, Watch Them Die, and Atrament – will be touring in support of their The Labyrinth full-length released on CD, digitally, and deluxe, foil-stamped LP via Tankcrimes Records, and on cassette via Sentient Ruin Laboratories in the US and Extremely Rotten in Europe last Summer. Spewing forth eight devious tracks amassed from three hard-to-find and long out-of-print demo tapes, The Labyrinth was tracked at Lennon Studios by the late great Jef “Leppard” Davis (Abscess, Acephalix, Vastum) and at Earhammer Studios with Greg Wilkinson (Brainoil, Annihilation Time, Noothgrush), and mastered at Mammoth Sound by Dan Randall (Ghoul, Toxic Holocaust). Fans of the audio bone-crush of bands like Autopsy, Bolt Thrower, Sacrilege, and the like pay heed.
NECROT recently finished tracking their debut again with Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios. The as-yet-untitled full-length is slated for a Summer release via Tankcrimes. Stand by for further details.

“…the classic bursting-at-the-seams, crawling-from-the-grave-still-decaying sound meets the ripping, memorable songs to create something that doesn’t redefine the genre, but nails that new old-school vibe we all crave.” – Decibel
“…a non-stop vicious killing machine that is must have for any death metal fan.” – Cvlt Nation
“NECROT are as old-school death metal as old-school death metal gets. Their songs would have been welcome presences on early classics by Master, Bolt Thrower and Autopsy and yet, NECROT has a punk rock soul that refuses to die.” – Invisible Oranges
“Death by pitiless decimation is the principle mandate here…” – Last Rites
“This is death metal for those of us who like and can’t get enough of Autopsy and Nihilist. If you like your death metal dark and murky with a sound right out of a new and fresh grave then this is the stuff for you.” – Battle Helm
