08/11/2012 - The Rotted's "AD Nauseam" released in South East Asia on cassette!
"Dead Beat Media is proud to be releasing an exclusive version of The Rotted's "Ad Nauseam" album on cassette format in South East Asia. Fans who already have the CD album on Candlelight can also pick up this ultra-special tape version to complete their collections!"
Comments Tim Carley "I've known Jill from Dead Beat Media for many many years, so its great to finally work together on THE ROTTED. We go way back to my days of running a label and distro in the UK when Jill was working at Razorback Records in the USA. Now shes based in Malaysia and doing it all again with Dead Beat Media! Also this is the first time THE ROTTED has been available on cassette format and its a great thing to do, proper old school"
07/06/2012 - The Rotted announce world tour of Scotland in September
In our quest for touring ever more new and exotic places, we've decided to book some dates in a country very close to our hearts that most bands neglect to visit: Scotland! Having only ever played Glasgow, we figured it was time to hit a few more cities up there, so we've filled in the necessary paperwork, got our visas and will be crossing the border to hit Elgin, Dundee and Glasgow. The tour centres around the third annual Hordes Of Belial festival, which we'll be headlining the main stage of on 22nd September. Other bands set to appear are Achren, Firebrand Super Rock, Threshold Sicks, Zillah and 8 more TBC. The night before this we'll be up in Elgin and the night after, Glasgow. For both of these shows, we've handpicked 2 fucking cool bands to play with us, Bonesaw and Filthpact, Scotland's finest Old Skool Death Metallers and Crust bastards respectively. Info:
21st Sept: Flanagans Bar, Elgin (w/ Bonesaw & Filthpact)
22d Sept: Hordes Of Belial Festival @ Beat Generator Live, Dundee (w/ Achren, Firebrand Super Rock and more)
!!!STOP PRESS!!! We have just confirmed a show in Liverpool on the 20th for the way up, and will also be hitting Filth Fest in Ireland. Check Live Dates for more info
24/04/2012 - A blast from our past!
Hammerheart Records are to reissue Gorerotted’s classic debut album ‘Mutilated In Minutes’ on both CD and picture disc vinyl, complete with bonus tracks. The currently out of print album was originally released in 2000 by Dead Again Records, then licensed for all territories outside of Europe by Relapse Records and was declared one of the Top 10 Gore albums of all time by Terrorizer Magazine. The ...album, which features such heart melting classics as ‘Gagged, Shagged, Bodybagged’ and ‘Put Your Bits In A Concrete Mix’ will also feature additional tracks ‘Limb By Limb’ and ‘Carrion Smelling’, both taken from the long out of print Deepsend Records 3-way split CD ‘Split Your Guts Vol. 1’ and a live recording of 'Cut, Beaten, Eaten' from a 2002 show in Wermeskirchen, Germany. The CD version of the album will also feature additional liner notes about the recording session by vocalist Ben ‘Goreskin’ McCrow, who along with Gorerotted founding member Tim “Fluffy” Carley currently performs in D-Beat Death Metal beast The Rotted.
The Rotted to headline free ‘Offenders Of The Faith’ show!
British D-Beat Death Metallers The Rotted are to headline ‘Offenders Of The Faith’ on 1st June, a free-entry show at the Camden Unicorn in London. Support comes from Grindcore/Sludge/Crusties The Atrocity Exhibit, Doomy-Death Metallers Detrimentum and London nutters Pure Negative!
Says the band: “Gigs these days are often package tours ran by agencies, sponsored by energy drinks and have overblown ticket prices, so we decided it was time for us to return to our grass routes and put on a show featuring a line-up of quality UK bands that work hard to do things for themselves, in an independently owned venue that genuinely supports underground, extreme music. Going one better than the ‘£3 entry with this flyer’ gigs we used to do in the late ‘90s, entrance to this show –like all shows at the Unicorn- will be totally free! All are welcome and we look forward to getting hammered with as many of you as possible!”
1st June: ‘Offenders Of The Faith’ feat. The Rotted + The Atrocity Exhibit + Detrimentum + TPure Negative @ The Unicorn, 227 Camden Road, London, NW1 9AA. Doors: 7pm. Nearest Tube: Camden Town Station. Nearest train: Camden Road Station. Buses: 29, 279, 253
