Staff Picks: Cerebral Rot - Odious Descent Into Decay

For fans of: Classic death metal sounds.

What they're saying: Decibel naturally gets technical about what sets Cerebral Rot apart from the recent spate of death metal revivalists, honing in on Cerebral Rot’s primitive and natural drum sound. And from Patrick Lyons’ review naming it Bandcamps album of the day: “Their debut LP seems optimized for one thing, and one thing alone: making music that’s as foul and disgusting as possible.”

What we say: Another killer record released on the always excellent 20 Buck Spin label. This Seattle group is one of the realist and most brutal in the game.
