It is the year 1997. Some British youngsters are about to found one of the most extreme metal bands of the whole empire. Their sound contains Grindcore, Death Metal and Punk. Their lyrics contain murder, death and horror. Their name is Gorerotted. Nowadays, 11 years later, the guys have become older. Older and wiser. They are no longer writing lyrics about third class horror movies, but about their experiences and their personal horror. Gone are the simple cliches, now there’s more brain. Because gore is no longer a part of the bands philosophy, the name had to be changed. And here we are: The Rotted! Luckily the music changed only a little bit. You can really feel the punch in your face when vocalist Ben McCrow opens the first track with the words „Nothing but a nose bleed“. After that, a real Death Metal thunderstorm, combined with a little portion of punk und grindcore, follows. A thunderstorm, which is so heavy that it, blasts most of the genre colleagues down on the ground. This is no new stuff, but really effective. This is definitely one of the best Death Metal releases of the year!
