The Rotted was formed from the ashes of Death Metal / Grindcore ensemble Gorerotted by ex-members Ben McCrow, Tim Carley, and Phil Wilson, along with Gian Pyres (ex-Cradle Of Filth, Christian Death, Screamin' Daemon) and Nate Gould (Ex-Screamin' Daemon) due to a musical progression and a desire for less limiting lyrical themes: the band themselves say that The Rotted and Gorerotted are two entirely different entities, with The Rotted incorporating more of a Punk/D-beat style into their brand of Death Metal.

It’s that time of the year again. No we don’t mean turning the heating back on – we are talking about Candlefest, the annual showcases organised by those awesome chaps over at Candlelight Records. This year’s lineup boasts no more than eight bands (well nine actually if you live near Manchester) for the recession smashing price of £15 and quite frankly, you’d be barking mad to miss it.

Chances are if you are reading this you will have a good idea of what heavy metal is. You may have noticed how many bands out there describe themselves as “F**K-OFF HEAVY”…and yet when you hear their music this is far from the case. The Rotted are a band that actually do live up to expectation, and we’ll bet anyone you know that has seen them will testify the very same.

You could say that Thrash Hits was plagued with more than a few technical glitches during the festival season this year. At Download, our entire website stopped working almost as soon as we arrived onsite. At Sonisphere, our microphone packed in and took the audio from a half-dozen amazing interviews with it. And at Bloodstock, our camera batteries fizzled out part way through our chat with the Reverend Trudgill from UK death metallers, The Rotted.

Photos + Live: Hellfire Festival @ London Islington Academy – 21 February 2009

February 26th, 2009

The disparity between the upper echelons and the grassroots of UK metal has never been more apparent than today. While thousands upon thousands of metalheads have poured into North London to catch Judas Priest, Megadeth and Testament tear up Wembley at the Priest Feast, a scant few hundred have made there way to Islington for the inaugural Hellfire Festival.
