Eternal Rot sign with Memento Mori

In their endless quest to push and support current underground acts that perpetuate the odor of vintage death metal, Memento Mori are extremely thrilled to announce a new signing: Eternal Rot, from U.K./Poland.

Eternal Rot crawled out of a musty dungeon in London in 2012, born out of a passion for death metal by Mayer and Grindak. Their 2013 Promo Tape demo (released as Grave Grooves on 7″ EP through Fallen Temple Productions a year after), featured two swampy and deadly tracks that attracted vigilant zombies who began to spread the word about a new sonic disease. A few years of disgusting excavations later, they joined forces with Godz Ov War Productions and spewed out the debut album Cadaverine, which was adorned with the artwork of Mark Riddick, who would ultimately become the band’s artist of choice from then on. Shortly after, the duo were joined by Radek Pierściński (Meat Spreader, Neuropathia, The Dead Goats) on drums, and the result was the band’s second album, Putridarium, which featured an improved formula of their already trademark purulent and über-crushing death metal. The band’s latest chapter of filth up to date was the 2021 split with death/doom metal powerhouse Coffins, on Behind the Mountain Records.

What we’re dealing with here is organ-crushing, mind-blowing, and sickening death metal that’s stripped to the very bone and insanely catchy, showcasing gnarly and slightly distorted vocals, downtuned guitars, a gut-wrenching rhythm section, and a horror-drenched atmosphere that’s utterly recommended to fans of Autopsy, Undergang, Hooded Menace, Rippikoulu, Anatomia, Disma, Coffins, Grave, Incantation, and Funebrarum.

Memento Mori (CD) and Godz Ov War Productions (LP, tape, and digital) will team up to unleash the band’s third full-length on July 24th. Further details to follow in the coming months. For more info, consult the links below.
