THE TANKS - midwest / east coast TOUR

The Tanks are a Punk Trio from Iowa City
and they are touring to the east coast this November...
Help fill in the gaps and/or go see them LIVE!!!

About The Tanks:
Adam Luksetich their bass player shreds punk and metal riffs
through his distortion drenched speakers while drummer Joe Ross
(Swing By Seven/Eclipse of Eden) pummels his drums into submission
with the brutality and persistence of an A.D.D. stricken youth....

all the while vocalist Kevin Koppes kicks and screams his way across
the stage with the demeanor of a clincally insane inmate....
Always an awesome and interesting live show!

Their new album "Keep Breaking Down" is out on CD/LP

on Iowa City based label Scenester Credentials.

* The Tanks's SPB Profile

With only two studio albums thus far, I'm not really comfortable referring to The Future of the Left has an influential band, but only a few seconds into The Tanks Keep Breaking Down and I'm thinking clearly of the Welsh band. The guitars aren't quite as interesting, and singer Kevin Koppes doesn't accentuate as much, but the speak-sing, monologue-style vocals are easily comparable, as is the high energy, short attention span attitude.

It's rock music with a definite metal influence, but they keep a pop structure that relies on melody and driving energy instead of solos and headbangs. At times the guitars make me thing of mid-era Faith No More, but mostly its heavy rock with an arrogant swagger and less pretention. More than any stylistic innovations, The Tanks want you to have fun while they play. It's clever and well executed - just not really my thing. “Action Delay” gets rolling with some catchy hooks and “Kingdom of Spite” has some nice rhythms, but there just aren't enough memorable hooks on the record - it tends to drone instead of drive.

A problem is that Koppes' voice gets a little tiresome, as it never changes pitch and all of the songs are generally structured the same. The record is only eight songs, but it still begins to feel a little too long once you get about half way through. Similarly, the longer the song is, the less interesting I tend to find them. The Tanks strength is in working their way succinctly through melodies instead of trying to stretch them out.

Keep Breaking Down comes in a gato pak, which is somewhat unique, but I find to be even more annoying than a digipak even if the liner notes are more accessible. The art, however, is screen printed and different on CD and vinyl, which is cool.

OUT NOW - SC020 Aseethe / Shores of the Tundra - split 12"


SC020 – Aseethe / Shores of the Tundra – split 12”

Scenester Credentials is pleased to present a split 12" featuring Aseethe and Shores of the Tundra. This record has been a long time in the making and just made sense to us as both bands have toured together across the country multiple times. 3 dudes, 2 bands, 1 record.

Aseethe brings his most expansive work to date to the A side, with two new doom drenched electronic masterpieces, "Black Heart" and "Fire to Flames". Heavy pounding guitar riffs meet delicately layered synths and electronics to create a sound that is powerful and beautiful. "Fire to Flames" was featured in the Vice Magazine TV film "Inside Underground Gaza".

Shores of the Tundra brings 3 of their heaviest tracks to the S side of the record, with "Cities End Times", "Everything", and "This World Breaks Like Glass". Taking a darker more industrial path with this recording the band really delves into the world of heavy electronics mixed with heavier guitars. Crushing drums meet harsh vocals all sandwiched in thick guitars. Always a band of concepts, if you start this new 12" with 30 seconds left to play on their previous 12" (Heart of the Beckoning) both records will blend together to give the illusion of one continuous song.

300 copies pressed on black vinyl with tri-colored screened covers. First 100 copies come with tour posters!

SC021 Yakuza – Transmutations 2xLP
SC019 The Tanks – Keep Breaking Down LP+CD / CD (on tour NOW!)
SC018 Shores of the Tundra – Heart of the Beckoning 12”
SC017 In Defence / Black Market Fetus – split 7” (In Defence on tour NOW!)
SC012 Get Rad / Call Me Lightning – split 7” (very few copies left)
SC010 The Spectacle – I, Fail 2xLP (only 5 color vinyl left!)

We have a bunch of new stuff in-stock from Relapse, Robotic Empire, Hex, Vendetta, and many more rad labels. We are also running a HUGE sale on a bunch of items in the distro! Time to pick up some new music.

The Horde "From Empire to Ashes" CD review

The Horde - From Empire To Ashes (Scenester Credentials )
By Chris Barnes
July 21, 2009

This is so up my alley, that I feel violated. From Empire To Ashes is friggin’ unrelenting Battle Metal that oscillates between Maiden-esque twin axe melodies and teeth-rattling, skull smashing, neck-snapping blasts of rhythmic fury.

The Horde and ex-Burnout (plus a bunch of other bands) guitar player Tim Matthews and I have kept in touch sporadically over the years since meeting at the Stoner Hands of Doom fest in Dallas in the early ‘00’s. He’s a good guy and a lot of the times it takes me awhile to get to reviewing a band’s music. In Tim’s case, the bands seem to breakup before I can get to them – luckily for me and everyone else this wasn’t the case this one. As far as I know, anyway.

For this band, Tim is joined by fellow ex-Burnout brutha John Hopkins on guitar, Bass Player/Vokillist Duncan and Drummer Paul. Tim and John have forsaken the groove-laden Stoner Rock of Burnout for a vicious Crust-laden version of True Metal. Close yer peepers and imagine a crossbreed of Slough Feg melodic sensibilities and Lair of the Minotaur , early Bolt Thrower or the sadly departed Sanctum’s raw, relentless aural punishment as a touchstone for The Horde’s sound.

All the songs are great, but the two best songs on this half-hour n’ change of sword-clashing, spell-chanting and halberd-smashing roiling rock n’ roll are the refined filth of opener “Dogs Of War” and the stadium-chant of “Battle Cry”. The latter, especially, will give you goosebumps if you’re a fan of the pre Post-Metal nonsense bouncing around these days. These are songs that will leave an indelible imprint upon your noggin as they roll right over you like a runaway Panzer.

Singer Duncan utilizes an ‘extreme metal’ voice, but one you can live with both because you can clearly understand the lyrics and second, because no other style would suit the rawness of the songs. It’d be like Dickinson singing Bolt Thrower… it just wouldn’t sound right. Both Tim and John have the twin guitar thing mastered and seamlessly transition from the melodic leads to the crushing rhythms. The result is a cohesive style that I can’t recall hearing before. They take pirate-shirted power metal and plunge it screaming into a vat of mud, blood and flame – the elements of war.

Great collection of songs and very cool cover art by the talented Alan Lathwell . Hope to get these in stock at Hellride sooner than later, I think you guys will really like this. Hope I’m not wrong.
