Chicago metal band Encrust today announces that they have signed to Density Records and will release their debut album, 'From Birth To Soil' on September 25, 2012. Formerly known as Hunters, Encrust is Chris Angelucci (vocals), Luke Tobias (guitar), Ryan Kasparian (guitar), Jeremy Pyrzynski (bass), and Brian Kutanovski (drums). The lineup came together in mid-2010 just as the band began to record their debut full-length with producer Andrew Ragin (The Atlas Moth) in Highland Park, IL at Phase Media Studios.
"We’ve been extremely fortunate to be asked to work with Density on the release of 'From Birth To Soil,'" said Pyrzynski. "We've put a TON of time and effort into this album and we are excited to get this record out to everybody and get on the road!"
Encrust has been performing in and around Chicago with bands like Sweet Cobra, Red Fang, Coliseum, Corrosion of Conformity, Indian, Earthride, Howl, and many more. The band has already been lauded in the press including Decibel magazine saying: "The monstrous sound this bunch churn out is part-bearded mountain man raping a billy goat, part-loogie of chaw running down your chin, part-NYC crossover and pretty much all awesome."
