Earth Rot – Follow The Black Smoke


Earth Rot is a black/death metal band from Perth, Australia. The band consists of four members. On August 29 they released ”Follow the Black Smoke”. This release is their first full length album. Ten tracks are included in this album. There is so much richness in this album. It starts with two great songs which are ”Frostitute” and ”A Dark III”, to be followed by an insanely, absolutely fantastic black metal song which is ”The Pact” of course. In the first two songs you can find some Swedish influences. I’m talking of course about Entombed and Dismember. ”Hunger” is a great song also. Loved the blastbeats and those beatdown parts in the end of it. ”Sleep Paralysis” has some sort of an old school vibe. Loved it also. And then ”Witch Vomit” comes. What a title for a song this is! It prepares you for the next song which is ”Black Tears”. This song has some excellent black metal riffs. ”The Serpent Tongue” might remind you a bit of Mayhem. I believe it’s the drums. ”Stares of Sempiternity” is a cool song. The album’s last song is ”Oblivion”. A nice one as well with a cool guitar solo. Clearly one of the best albums i’ ve listen to since months. I don’t know if it’s a bold statement but i think this album is easily one of the best albums of 2014. Just listen to their amazing vocals and their perfect album production. Specially recommended for fans of Entombed, Dismember, Misery Index, Nile, Rotten Sound, Mayhem, Satyricon.
