    Event details: Born out of the dingy London back streets, The Rotted have risen up and established themselves as one of the UK's leading extreme metal acts.

    Though proud to be spawned in the death and extreme metal scene, the boys' influences aren't just the ones normally associated with the style of music they create. The Rotted's take on the genre comes from a completely different angle; It's not the genre or style, it's the attitude and delivery. As fans of classic rock, hardcore, punk, death, thrash and black metal, musical inspiration for ‘Get Dead Or Die Trying' can be found in pretty much any decent guitar-based band of the last 30 years.

    The line-up reads like the role call at an alcoholics meeting, Ben McCrow on vocals, Tim Carley on guitar, Gian Pyres on lead guitar, Wilson on bass and former IDF tank unit sergeant Nate Gould on drums.

    Since starting life in 1997 under the name ‘Gorerotted', the band have always done things their way and let the music write itself. They do what they want, when they want to do it. Nothing contrived, no gimmicks, they're music is honest and from the heart.

    Having released 3 albums on Metal Blade and Relapse Records the boys felt it was time for fresh blood and a fresh approach. It was decided, partly as a mark of respect to previous members and for the original idea and motives behind ‘Gorerotted' that the name should change. The band has been known for many years by friends and fans as "The ‘Rotted" so it was right to choose that as the name.
