Encrust / Bio

Formerly known as HUNTERS (Chicago).

Our debut full length record "From Birth To Soil" will be released via Density Records on September 25th, 2012.

Recorded with producer and long time friend Andrew Ragin (the Atlas Moth) and co-mixed and mastered by James Murphy (Testament, Death, Obituary).

This record has been turning some heads amongst the sludge, doom, stoner, & death metal scenes.

Shows and weekend tours in and around the midwest the past year with bands like; Exhumed, Goatwhore, Dragged Into Sunlight, Havok, Sweet Cobra, The Atlas Moth, Red Fang, Coliseum, Corrosion of Conformity, Indian, Earthride, Howl, Coffinworm, Lazarus A.D., Enabler, The Swan King, Wolvhammer, Antietam 1862, Millions, Lord Mantis, Backwoods Payback, Rue, Rebreather, Black Skies, and many more.

The ever entertaining onstage antics have built a buzz with members spitting, pushing, playing pranks and at times even throwing punches at each other during the set, to truly visually represent the dark nature of our sound.

We even strongly pride ourselves on keeping the DIY attitude and lifestyle we were raised on by designing, printing & promoting our own merch and music. Something that is very rare these days with the saturated viral marketing monster that has now become the internet.

But, like every intelligent creature we are adapting to our surroundings and have been utilizing the evolution of media with our website and social media outlets. To better our communication with fans and even network with good friends in other bands and labels.

Be prepared for alot from us in, as we are always writing music and creating art. It's our life... and without it... we are dirt.
