Blood Offerings is the imminent new full-length from Oakland, California-based classic death dealers NECROT.
Slated to drop June 9th, 2017 on CD, LP, and digitally via Tankcrimes and on cassette in partnership with Sentient Ruin Laboratories, the eight-tracks comprising NECROT's 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).
In advance of its release, today the brutality-bringers at Decibel Magazine are offering up the fetid sounds of "Shadows And Light" for public inebriation, the band issuing of the tune, "This track will make you put your head in the oven and throw your phone in the microwave. Grab some knives out of the drawer and live through DEATH!"

And if you missed it, check out first single "Empty Hands," at the Tankcrimes Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION where you can nab a digital copy of the record for $6.66.

NECROT will bring their coffin-coated chaos to stages across the US for the month-long Make America Death Again Tour with Denmark-based death metal tyrants, Undergang. Set to commence on June 30th and conclude on July 29th, the trek follows a one-off show later this month with Exhumed. The band will also make their way to Europe this fall for a journey that will include stops at Bloodshed and Graveland Fests. Further details to be unveiled in the coming weeks.

Forged in 2011, NECROT features current and past members of Acephalix, Vastum, Saviours, Watch Them Die, and Atrament. The band unleashed the audio bone-crush of their The Labyrinth full-length last year via Tankcrimes Records. 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.Decibel Magazine hailed NECROT's, "classic, bursting-at-the-seams, crawling-from-the-grave-still-
decaying sound," while Invisible Oranges wrote, "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." Last Rites concurred noting, "Death by pitiless decimation is the principle mandate here."
