Rotting Kingdom 2

A blend of melodic doom and death metal, the three tracks that make up this EP are a bleak but addictive listen. Adrift in a Sea Of Souls’ wailing guitars & depth-heavy vocals licks around the mind like flames that are threatening to engulf everything.

The twin-guitar attack results in some really rich & detailed sound as The Castle of Decay wakes up & stretches its melodic doom muscles. The weight of Rotting Kingdom’s heaviness bears down before Demons in Stained Glass piles on an extra layer.

The roaring heat of this final offering is enough to melt steel as Rotting Kingdom throw their all into it. Delivering a vocally violent but rhythmic track that alternates between crushing doom & post-metal like melody.

The strength in this EP comes from the guitars but alongside the deep bass & bludgeoning vocals, perfection is nearly achieved.
