German death metallers LAY DOWN ROTTEN will release their new album, "Deathspell Catharsis", on January 24, 2014 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland; January 27 in the rest of Europe; and on February 11 in North America via Apostasy Records. The CD was once again produced by the band's collaborator Thilo Krieger in his Desert Inn Studio. The artwork was created by Toshihiro Egewa (CRYPTOPSY, DEFEATED SANITY, KRISIUN).For nearly 15 years, LAY DOWN ROTTEN has stood for energetic top-notch death metal. Their haunting live-shows at festivals like With Full Force, Rock Harz, Extremefest, Death Feast and Summer Breeze, and shows alongside the likes of CANNIBAL CORPSE, BOLT THROWER and ABORTED, have always captivated the audience. Albums like "Breeding Insanity" (Remission Records), "Gospel Of The Wretched" (Metal Blade Records) and last year's "Mask Of Malice" (Metal Blade Records) have been well-received within the whole scene and the press. Now, it is time for the first sign of life from the band via their new label home, Apostasy Records.
