The Rotted are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of death metal and crust/punk and this is a review of their 2011 album "Ad Nauseam" which was released by Candlelight Records.
Drums range from mid paced to fast drumming with alot of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown in, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with riffing that combines death metal and punk rock.
Rhythm guitars range from mid paced to fast riffs thaat combine death metal,, thrash, crust and punk rock , while the lead guitars when they are utilized bring a Motorhead/punk rock feeling to the music.
Vocals are a mixture of death metal growls, high pitched screams, crust punk style growling and shouted gang style vocals in addition the last song utilizes some black metal screams, while the lyrics cover hateful, occult and anti christian themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion The Rotted are a very good sounding death metal/punk rock sounding and if you are a fan of this hybrid, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Anarchogram Sun" "Non Serviam" "The Hammer Of Witches" and "Put Me Out Of Your Misery". RECEMMONDED BUY.
