Odious Descent Into Decay, the debut full-length excursion into the grimy depths of death metal from Seattle death metal outfit, CEREBRAL ROT, is out now and streaming in its putrid entirety through the deathmongers at 20 Buck Spin. The album is expulsed into the public domain just over two weeks before the band’s trek across the US with labelmates Fetid begins, with the Odious Mess Of Seeping Decay tour.
Continuing to extract the deadliest beings from the dankest corners of the Northwest, 20 Buck Spin summons from the festering swamp-soaked murk the revolting mutation that is CEREBRAL ROT. Like sewage winding its way through tunnels below the street, the band’s music reeks with the stench of vulgarity and noxious body fumes. The band shares members with other acts from across the region including, Fetid, Crurifragium, Cauterized, Caustic Wound, Excarnated Entity, and others. Fans of Fetid, Undergang, early-Carcass, and huffing embalming fluid tune in.

Embalmed in an analog toxic dump, the debut CEREBRAL ROT LP Odious Descent Into Decay follows the well-received Cessation Of Life demo, released in 2018. The new LP melts the skin with radioactive brutality and gurgling bursts of punishing cruelty. Virulent subterranean death metal glistening with pustular fallout and obscure rotten air left too long on the morgue table, the skin peels off and the last gasp of life echoes terrifyingly within. A rank abomination of disgust, Odious Descent Into Decay relies not on over technicality but disfiguring physical violence and battering submission in its quest for the true embodiment of sub-underground death as it morphs from one wet distorted monstrosity to another. Like the miserable mess of decayed forms on the cover, the septic sickness of CEREBRAL ROT has only just begun to spread.
“And it’s all captured with the volatile tonality of an especially nasty Peel Session. This is a perfectly nauseating listen, friends. Go forth and be mortified.” – Decibel Magazine
“With disgustingly organic instrumental textures and cavernous guttural vocals, CEREBRAL ROT have returned to death metal’s most primordial mission of disemboweling the listener before stomping our brains out of our ears.
“The momentum, technical flare and tuneful swing are distributed evenly across the album in ensuring the experience does nothing less than please and exceed expectations… Odious Descent Into Decay is extravagant, circumspect-fully crafted and grotesquely romanticized. 9.8/10” – Metal Bite
“…CEREBRAL ROT might be your new go-to band anytime you want to visit abomination and depravity in ways that won’t land you in prison. This is a sickening, lurching serving of death metal that won’t taste good in the classic sense but will leave you full and strangely nauseous.” – Meat Mead Metal
“CEREBRAL ROT‘s debut full-length is dark and putrid, a disgusting splatter of prose that’d worship filth and shit as they narrate human decay and they’ve thankfully created an exemplar ‘classic’ death metal sound that recalls the blurred line between death and grind enjoyed in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s.” – Grizzly Butts
