DOWNLOAD: The Minus Tide - Anakuklosis

Following the release of their debut EP The Rock Autopsy Has Begun, The Minus Tide put out a pair of split releases on vinyl - one with Morgantown's Turn Around Norman and one with Pankration. Before the band went on hiatus in 2005 to pursue other projects, they released this exceptional 10-song album on Action Driver Records.

The album is currently being re-mixed by the band, who are considering options for re-releasing it.

"Weird, scary, heavy, brutal and awesome. If only every other crappy metal/hardcore hybrid band could look toward The Minus Tide for inspiration. " - Punk Planet

"Genre-defining. This sonic monster is merciless." - Bettawreckonize.com

"A monster of a concept album... Anakuklosis is a balls-out testimony of the digital age." - The Emory Wheel

"Complex, brutal and expertly played, Anakuklosis is a solid collection of precision-tuned chaos." - Splendid E-Zine

"A short and sweet romp through the fields of ambitious, challenging metalcore." - Deep Fry Bonanza

"I'm not really sure what Anakuklosis means, but I'm going to guess it's something along the lines of 'if you thought our last record was awesome, prepare to have your face melted.' ...The new standard for bands creating this kind controlled chaos." - Smother.net
