"DRAGGED DOWN TO HELL"
NIHILISTIC HOLOCAUST RECORDS
"DRAGGED DOWN TO HELL" is the first demo release, on cassette from Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania's very own TRENCH ROT. These guys play a monstrous style of old
school Death Metal music. The style they play is more in the form of European Death
Metal from the early '90's. They have a thick raw and aggressive sound that is brutal as
shit. They add in some Doom Metal elements in the slower more dragging and chugging
parts. The vocals are done in a thick and groggy low ended Death Metal growl style that is
almost understandable. The dark, cold vibe sometimes gives them a bit of a Black Metal
feel as well. The production of their album takes me back to the late '80's and early '90's
when I was doing a lot of tape trading with bands all over the world. This is an absolute
must for fans of early BOLT THROWER, DISMEMBER, ASPHYX, CARNAGE &
PESTILENCE. TRENCH ROT is yet another great underground Death Metal band that
can be added to the long list that Philadelphia has birthed!
