THE ROTTED
AD NAUSEUM
CANDLELIGHT

Hailing from the UK, The Rotted combine Entombed’s caustic tones and Dismember’s decimating use of the D-beat as a template for their 11-track excursion AD NAUSEUM. Laden with lightning fast rhythms and downtuned guitar chug aplenty (“Rex Oblivione”, “Entering the Arena of the Unwell”), this band provides sizzling short sharp shocks (“Apathy in the UK”) as well as a few longer pieces with discernibly doomier atmospheres (“Put Me Out of Your Misery”). The Rotted are far from original, yet they do a fine job of recreating the buzzing beginnings of the death metal era with a winning balance of speed and aggression. –Mike SOS
