Tankcrimes to Re-release BRAINOIL’s Debut Album

On September 14, 2014, Tankcrimes will reissue the debut full-length from Oakland-born punishing sludge power trio, BRAINOIL.

BRAINOIL‘s sludge style is chock full of up-tempo crust-inspired breaks and monstrously baked breakdowns undoubtedly suited for diehards of IRON MONKEY, DYSTOPIA, BUZZOV*EN and EL DOPA. Originally released on Life Is Abuse Records in 2003 but sold out for over five years, the monolithic Brainoil was recorded by Dan Rathburn at Polymorph Studios.

Brainoil will be released on CD and vinyl limited to500 copies in two color variants: 150 – gold, bone, brown mashed vinyl and 350 – bone vinyl. All vinyl orders come with a download card to satiate your digital listening pleasures.
