Bringing A unique mixture of Rap, Industrial, Metal since 2005, Colorado-based entertainer SickTanicK has been a staple of the underground hip-hop genre "Horrorcore" originally hailing from Albuquerque New Mexico, he is the founder of SKR - Serial Killin Records, one of the most prominent and popular labels in the Hip-Hop Sub-Genre. Accumulating a "Cult" like following and coining the term for his own style called "Occult Rap". SickTanicK has been an instrumental figure in shaping the genre as a whole by being one of the most prominent and sought after producers by some of the most elite and popular names in it.
Early in 2017, Serial Killin Records was officially dismantled as a multi-artist record label and now only features SickTanicK as it's a primary and facilitating artist. In 2018 he released what has become his most popular and highest-selling record to date, "Oculus Omnia" released to multiple positive reviews including one two years after its official release from the Legendary Alternative Press Magazine alongside artists like $uicide Boy$, Tyler The Creator, Twiztid & Many More (including albums he had production and engineering features on), saying about the album; "SickTanicK takes you to places horrorcore rarely, if ever, goes.".
In late 2017 SickTanicK was diagnosed with Stage 3 Cancer and other serious health issues that forced him to take a prolonged hiatus from music but now, nearly two years in official remission SickTanicK has returned and is currently working on his Magnum Opus "Underground Pariah" in 2020, releasing the first single accompanied by the highly controversial music video for "American Satan", he anticipates releasing the full album in early to mid-2021. It has been a long road, and a lot has changed over the years but make no mistake, SickTanicK is back, and he has a lot to say.
