It’s not all prog that comes from the land down under! EARTH ROT
is Australia’s blackened death metal machine, with an old-school undercurrent and a sense of grim relentless groove. It is hateful, harmful, sinister and melancholy noise, shaped by the world around you.
Since the inception in 2014, EARTH ROT have pulled no punches, recording, releasing and touring heavily across Australia, Asia and Europe with no intent of settling for anything less. Their debut album ‘Follow The Black Smoke’ was released in the same year, quickly followed by the ‘Chthonian Virtues’ EP (2016) and a second full length ‘Renascentia’ in 2017.
In the years after, the band embarked on heavy tours together with acts like FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, PSYCROPTIC, VADER and MARDUK, cultivating their sound in direct support of legends in the realms of black and death metal, around the world. The past five years has seen EARTH ROT quickly develop into a complex beast, dwelling in the deepest of pits. And this beast is ready to be released upon the masses.
With ‘Black Tides of Obscurity,’ EARTH ROT portray the absurdity of life and reflects life’s journey which is often loaded with uncomfortable discoveries and unexplored drives & desires, contorting into spiraling madness. The new offering is letting you explore the reality of the new cosmic horror of human insignificance and the fragility of the mind…
