18/03/2013 - 'Rotted Fucking Earth' music video online now!
The music video for our latest single Rotted Fucking Earth is now available to view in the video section.
In another move to keep things in the family, the whole thing was self-funded and released on our 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, a great studio co-owned by our good friend Mic Hourinhan (Desecration, Onslaught, ex-Extreme Noise Terror)
20/02/2013 - ‘Rotted Fucking Earth’: The Rotted’s anti-pledge new single!
Over the last few years, we’ve watched with interest bands that have been using this new “pledge” system off the internet of making records, where people pay for the finished product before it’s even been recorded. But in typical Rotted fashion, we’ve done it all arse-over-tit and recorded the song first, and now ask that you “pledge” money toward owning it. You won’t have to wait, simply “download” the track from “iTunes," "CD Baby" or “The Amazon” today and it’s yours instantly. (Personally, I reckon our revolutionary new way of making music is going to take off big time, and more bands will follow suit soon. Watch this space!)
We self-funded 'Rotted Fucking Earth' and it will be released on our own Anarchogram Industries label. It’s about throw away culture and the acceleration of just about everything in modern society. We decided that in a world of 8 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.
We have over 4700 'likes' on Facebook alone. If 100% of those people buy the track for only 79p, we’ll make a new album. If 50% buy it, we’ll make a new EP or 7" Vinyl and a new video. If 20% buy the track, we’ll have covered our costs. If none of you buy it, we promise to fuck off forever.

25/01/2013 - First two shows of 2013 announced
We'll be playing MetalDays Open Air in Slovenia on 25th July and Barther Metal Open Air in Germany on 16th or 17th August. We had a mental night playing our only ever other Slovenian show in 2010 and can't wait to get back there, and being the only Death Metal/Punk band on what looks like an all Black Metal bill in Germany will be interesting for us, and hopefully the audience. More show announcements coming soon, so keep checking back.
