Tank: Demo 2006 cassette

Black Dots


Re-release of the 2006 demo tape from this band out of Buffalo, NY. It seems weird to re-release a long-defunct band's demo 8 years after the fact, but I can see why this got dug back up... it's a really interesting genre-bender, sort of akin to the great Gas Chamber tape that came out of Buffalo a few months back. There are elements of power violence, technical metal, and doom here, but it doesn't feel spastic or overwrought... it's just a weird, raging demo with production strong enough that it would have been more than appropriate for vinyl. Definitely something of a museum piece, but if you're into, say, the heavier stuff that Iron Lung Records puts out I have a feeling you'll really, really like this.
