“And it’s all captured with the volatile tonality of an especially nasty Peel Session. This is a perfectly nauseating listen, friends. Go forth and be mortified.” – Decibel Magazine
“Putrefaction (Eternal Decay)” is the latest gory decimation from Seattle death metal outfit, CEREBRAL ROT, and their impending debut LP, Odious Descent Into Decay. The LP is oozing towards its worldwide release through the deathmongers at 20 Buck Spin in mid-August, after which the band will trek across the US with labelmates Fetid on the Odious Mess Of Seeping Decay tour. Continuing to extract the deadliest beings from the dankest corners of the Northwest, 20 Buck Spin summons from the festering swamp-soaked murk the revolting mutation that is CEREBRAL ROT. Like sewage winding its way through tunnels below the street, the band’s music reeks with the stench of vulgarity and noxious body fumes. The band shares members with other acts from across the region including, Fetid, Crurifragium, Cauterized, Caustic Wound, Excarnated Entity, and others. Stream CEREBRAL ROT’s “Putrefaction (Eternal Decay)” RIGHT HERE. Odious Descent Into Decay will see release on LP, CD, cassette, and all digital platforms via 20 Buck Spin on August 16th. Fans of Fetid, Undergang, early-Carcass, and huffing embalming fluid, CEREBRAL ROT is for you. Preorders are available at the label webshop HERE and Bandcamp where “Repulsive Infestation Of Cadaver” and “Swamped In Festering Excrementia” are also streaming HERE.

The new LP melts the skin with radioactive brutality and gurgling bursts of punishing cruelty. Virulent subterranean death metal glistening with pustular fallout and obscure rotten air left too long on the morgue table, the skin peels off and the last gasp of life echoes terrifyingly within. A rank abomination of disgust, Odious Descent Into Decay relies not on over technicality but disfiguring physical violence and battering submission in its quest for the true embodiment of sub-underground death as it morphs from one wet distorted monstrosity to another. Like the miserable mess of decayed forms on the cover, the septic sickness of CEREBRAL ROT has only just begun to spread.
