Australian blackened death metal outfit Earth Rot are now unveiling the cover artwork and album details of their upcoming opus ‘Black Tides of Obscurity’ which will be released on March 06, 2020 via Season of Mist.
Earth Rot comment: “A morbid hallucination of the inevitable end. Heralded by titanic black waves, monstrous tentacles spill forth from the abyss, accompanied by a total fracturing of the mind. Hanging black in the heavens, an all-seeing spectre of the adversary confirms our darkest fear: doom is coming for us all. It is with much excitement we reveal the title and artwork for our upcoming Season of Mist debut release, Black Tides of Obscurity with artwork by the exceptional Khaos Diktator Design. To celebrate the album release, we’ve handpicked lineups of the best that Australia’s underground metal scene has to offer. Direct support comes from South Australia’s most blasphemous sons: Christ Dismembered.”

It’s not all prog that comes from the land down under! Earth Rot; Australia’s blackened death metal machine, with an old-school undercurrent and a sense of grim relentless groove. It is hateful, harmful, sinister and melancholy noise shaped by the world around you.
Since the inception in 2014, Earth Rot have pulled no punches, recording, releasing and touring heavily across Australia, Asia and Europe with no intent of settling for anything less. Their debut album ‘Follow The Black Smoke’ was released in the same year, quickly followed by the ‘Chthonian Virtues’ EP (2016) and the second full length ‘Renascentia’ in 2017.
Cultivating their sound in direct support of legends in the realms of black metal and death metal, around the world. The band embarked on heavy tours together with acts like FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, PSYCROPTIC, VADER and MARDUK.
The past five years has seen Earth Rot quickly develop into a complex beast, dwelling in the deepest of pits. And this beast is ready to be released upon the masses…
