If ever there were a point in history that demanded angry, scathing, explosive music then this is it. With eerie but exhilarating echoes Reagans 80s and the bilious, hyper-aggressive hardcore punk scene that erupted in response, the world of 2018 is more than ready for the blistering return of Septic Tank. This band of weather-beaten underground veterans have existed since the early 90s, more as a whispered enigma than a full-time band, but the decisive moment of deafening reality has arrived with the unveiling of Rotting Civilisation, the first full-length Septic Tank record and the ugly, rampaging rebirth of the subversive hardcore spirit.
Originally formed in 1994 as a low-key outlet for doom metal standard bearers Cathedrals love for Discharge, Siege, Septic Death, G.I.S.M. and other pioneering hardcore luminaries, Septic Tanks original line-up featured Cathedral vocalist Lee Dorrian, guitarist Gaz Jennings and drummer Barry Stern (ex-Trouble) alongside Repulsions Scott Carlson on bass. With Esteemed producer Jamie Gomez Arellano replacing Barry Stern in the 2018 line up, Septic Tank are no longer a shadowy side-project that existed more in the minds of its participants than in the ears of the masses, Rotting Civilisation is the perfect soundtrack to the collapse of society
