Rotten Casket - Emerged From Beyond Award winner

Rotten Casket
Emerged From Beyond
by Andrej Romić (Nekrst Fanzine) at 12 March 2017, 9:22 PM

We, humans, spent too much time without listening to music. That’s why so many bands are doing what they do in the first place; and they might list some less valuable factors, but in reality, musicians mostly play for fans. That’s exactly what the Netherlands-based act ROTTEN CASKET are doing. Although a pretty expectable combination of music, it still deserves a try.

I am presenting you their newest material, a compilation entitled “Emerged From Beyond”, which is pretty much a bit of a longer and more complex compilation of their previous two releases; their debut “Simply Rotten Death” and “Consumed by Filth”. This compilation contains 9 tracks of pretty swift and brutal, Dutch old school Death Metal straight out of the 90’s.

Being that the band have been active since 2013, which isn’t a long time, they hadn’t been noticed by a label until they signed for Underground Movement; and it’s pretty obvious what they specialise in. This is some pretty aggressive, old but still new-sounding mix of classic Death Metal right from the heart of Scandinavia! “Vortex Insanity” is a track of pure madness and aggression with loud drums, horrifying vocals, brutal, deep-toned guitar riffs, and some even pretty audible bass too! The lyrics too appear to be pretty understandable; of course that may be because I’ve listened to this record a lot. So yeah, this track is amazing! The next one: “Falling Skies”, sounds already better than the first one; it has a mini melodic part, brutal vocals, and some cool screams also. I like how the instruments are more dominant in this song, and being that it even has a solo, all those tiny pieces make this song really enjoyable, and one of my favourites on this compilation.

If you like DISMEMBER, ENTOMBED or ENTRAILS, the band ROTTEN CASKET was literally made for your ears! Blast their music with anger and joy.
