Immortal Rotting…

Well, the band is from the USA and they are releasing demos, EPS, singles, one split, live albums, and albums since 2019. For a band that only started in 2019, they are very productive.

And doing too many covers, for example, Cannibal Corpse, Venom, Slayer, Mortician, Black Sabbath, Autopsy, Death, and Deicide.

Well, with the bands covered, maybe you already have an idea of their sound.

But I will give you some more tips too…

Not so brutal as Mortician or Cannibal Corpse, not so technical as Death, not so Heavy Metal as Venom, nor so Thrash Metal as Slayer, not related with Deicide too… So, only left…

Yes, Autopsy and Black Sabbath.

Autopsy is the rotten Death Metal part. Black Sabbath the Doom Metal.

The mix… Well… To be honest, is simple. And? Anything against it? Nop. Not, me. It looks like I’m listening to the old albums of Autopsy mixed with some Black Sabbath riffs here and there. The voice… Well, in my opinion, is more related to Funeral Doom, with a strong voice.

It was boring? Not at all, besides the simple riffs of the songs. It is necessary technical riffs and having plenty of notes to do something pleasant to listen to? Well, in my opinion is not needed, but at the same time, depends on the music style played by the band.

In the case of Immortal Rotting… No need.

The band managed to create an album that you can listen to, with a good atmosphere, simple, as I said, pleasant to listen to, not boring, positive things… But…

At the same time, I can’t deny that some details in the songs could be better and the band should pay attention to some things. For example, the change between the clean guitar sound and the distortion sound, some beginnings in the songs, they start, as a BUM, looked like they started to record the song with the notes already doing the fade in, or on the end of the songs sometimes look cut off, well, that means that there was not so much careful doing the mastering or production.

I understand if the band doesn’t want to do a big production, they want to sound on record as they sound at the rehearsal place, but some details sometimes should be done.

Even so… The album is ok. I did enjoy it, cause I remind the old days when everything was simple, or at least more simple than nowadays, but, was missing something…

The time listening to was not “lost” and I decide to check more releases in order to know a bit more about the band. But… Even so… I can’t give more. 6/10 The Key Keeper 666
