ROTTEN CASKET – “First Nail In The Casket” MC
ROTTEN CASKET returns with a powerful release of pure death metal domination. 19 minutes of a classic sounding and without the slightest hint of pretension, “First Nail In The Casket” represents a masterclass in ancient death metal songcraft that is imperatively worth a praise.
Four tracks in length, these rotten-obsessed people distinguish themselves from other extreme bands with clever guitarwork and huge amounts of unique hooks that keep heavy things moving with a pleasing. Take “Bonetomb Residents“ and „Coffin Birth” for some highlights, the guitar solo and song structure sounds utterly poetic. Those two songwriting freshly unearthed from six feet underground with otherworldly charm and solid foundation. The other two tracks that also heavily incorporate more melodicism while still maintaining filthy buzzsaw aggression will trap you into a sonic maelstrom of punishing death metal riffs.
The rotten death metal quintet has undergone a slight change in line-up since their first release “Simply Rotten Death” back in the year 2015. But with recent addition of vocalist Martin van Drunen and drummer Stefan Hüskens whom also playing with legendary ASPHYX, two amazing shredders Yorck Segatz from thrash metal icon SODOM, Patrick van der Beek on bass and remaining original member Frank Bergesson, this certainly pave the way for ROTTEN CASKET to an all new level towards masterpiece.
Now, come our way, let your death metal be rotten and dark, and most of all, let them blow you away!
