The first CD release from Hartford, Connecticut crust punks OILTANKER is out now via Southern Lord. Combining their Shadow of Greed LP and Crusades 7″, the limited edition numbered CD release combines both vinyl releases forming one 16-track socio/political d-beat killing spree. A sure-thing for circle-pit ragers and diehard fans of Wolfbrigade, Doom, DropDead, State of Fear and Hellshock.
Cvlt Nation is hosting a stream of Shadow of Greed/Crusades in its entirety RIGHT HERE.
Next week the OILTANKER brigade will storm the alleyways and off-the-grid local/D.I.Y. venues across a good hung of the continent on their latest self-booked live excursion. Stay tuned for further live updates in the coming weeks.
