“Surrounded By Skulls”, the new video from U.K. death metallers THE ROTTED, can be seen below. The song comes off the band’s second album, “Ad Nauseam”, which was released last Halloween to high critical acclaim from reviewers and listeners alike. The CD features 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.
In other news, THE ROTTED has announced Scottish and Irish dates for September, with a cheeky one-off N.W. England show thrown into the bargain for good measure. In keeping with the band’s old-school values and ethics, entry to each show will be as low cost as possible, and in many cases, the support bands have been hand-picked by the band themselves to showcase the wealth of hard working, home grown talent in the U.K. extreme metal scene.
