We here at Decibel are all over Chicago's Encrust. We've been all over the metallic ragers and their new album From Birth to Soil with reviews, blog posts, track previews; in fact, we've been swinging off their nuts when they were known as Hunters and were recently forced to change their name. Now, you can see, hear and experience what's all the hubbub, bub. The band are serving as opening act on the Carnival of Death tour featuring headliners Obituary along with Broken Hope, Decripit Birth and Jungle Rot and the kind folks at their label want to send two lucky motherfuckers to one of the shows on the tour (winner's choice). As well, you'll get a copy of the record we've been all goo-ga-ga over and a limited edition t-shirt. All you have to do is email your name, rank and serial number to firstname.lastname@example.org, sit back and let their random selector do its selecting.
