It’s been a good 8 months since The Rotted released Ad Nauseam, but thankfully that hasn’t stopped the band from pushing the material from it. ‘Surrounded By Skulls‘ was, by far, one of my favourite tracks from the album, it seemed the perfect mission statement for the bands self-proclaimed ‘d-beat death metal’ and clearly revels in the warty simplicity of it all. As for the video, it shows the band in their natural setting by splicing stock footage of skeletons and other atrocities with some crusty black and white video of a live performance – it’s exactly the kind of no-frills approach that we’ve come to expect from the band and I wouldn’t want anything else.
