U.K. death metal punks THE ROTTED have released a video for their latest single, "Rotted Fucking Earth". Check it out below.
In another move to keep things in the family, the whole thing was self-funded and released on THE ROTTED's own Anarchogram Industries label, with the video being directed by vocalist Ben McCrow's brother, Tom McCrow, and the audio being produced by Joe Thompson at Sonic Forge Music in Cardiff, a great studio co-owned by long time friend of the band Mic Hourinhan (DESECRATION, ONSLAUGHT, ex-EXTREME NOISE TERROR).
Says the band: "The track itself is about throw away culture and the acceleration of just about everything in modern society. We decided that in a world of eight-string guitars, 12-string basses and drumkits from hell 'shredding' in weird scat-jazz time signatures that we wanted a stripped down song with lots of shouting, and where the verse and chorus are the same chords. It's the most knuckle-dragging, drunken-swaggering, punk-rocking song we've ever written."
THE ROTTED's second album, "Ad Nauseam", was released in 2011 to high critical acclaim from reviewers and listeners alike. The CD featured 11 tracks of fast, aggressive, honest and in-your-face punk-infused death metal sure to strike a chord with fans of NAPALM DEATH, ENTOMBED, EXTREME NOISE TERROR, MOTÖRHEAD and DISCHARGE. Since then, THE ROTTED has also released a seven-inch vinyl single, "Apathy In The UK", through Hammerheart Records.
