Rotting Flesh are a a band from Greece that plays an atmospheric form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album Infected Purity" which was re-issued in 2015 as a joint effort between Symbol Of Domination productions and Murdher Records.
Ritualistic sounding synths and thunder noises start off the album giving the music and epic feeling and after the intro and after the intro melodic guitar leads, heavy riffs and death metal growls are added into the music along with the faster sections utilizing a great amount of blast beats and the synths also mix in with the heavier parts.
Black metal screams can be heard in the music at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the growls also getting guttural in some parts of the recording and some of the riffs also bring in a touch of thrash and some tracks also bring in ritualistic chants and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when female vocals are utilized they give the music an operatic feeling while a alter track also brings in elements of electronic music.
Rotting Flesh plays a style of death metal that is very similar to Septic Flesh but adds in more of a black metal influence and faster riffs to make their music stand out a bit more, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, violent and anti christian themes.
In my opinion Rotting Flesh are a very great sounding atmospheric mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Terrorscope" "Withdraw Christianity" 'Life And Torment" and "Mental State". 8 out of 10.
