When one death/doom trio wasn’t enough, Rotted Life Records spanned the Atlantic to double the disgust, bringing together Virginia’s NIGHT HAG, and Germany’s CRYPTIC BROOD for one foul smelling split LP. The result is 7 putrid excretions of death, decay, and doom, complete with all the oozing and gooey accoutrements you’d expect from these two bands. You’re not going to come away smarter, but the layer of skin that sloughs off is going to give you a radiant glow.

Releases 8th January 2021. Available for pre-order from our shop.

You can listen to the split on the product page.

Our album „Outcome Of Obnoxious Science“ will see a re-release on tape format by the South American label Burning Coffin Records. Release is set to December 2020. We will have copies available soon.

Get your brain vaporised in a vortex of filth and watch the music video for the title track:

This one was brewing for some time but will finally be released in December 2020. Three exclusive tracks by NIGHT HAG and four by CRYPTIC BROOD.

We recorded our music in December 2019 in our rehearsal room at s.v. Jugendhaus Ost in Wolfsburg. Vocals were recorded in the Lycanthropic Chants dungeon in February 2020. Marco Brinkmann at Hellforge Studio mixed our tracks in May 2020 and the mastering was handled by Bob Quirk in June 2020. Artwork by Caleb Dickenson. The LP was layouted by FINAdesigns.

Next week we would inhale the ancient stench of Scandinavia. Due to the current circumstances we’re not able to do so. Cross fingers we will be able to make this tour happen in 2021.

New merch from the brood is out now. T-shirts and longlseeves are available from sizes S to XXL.

T-shirts are printed on Fruit Of The Loom Super Premium (205g/m²) and longsleeves on Gildan Ultra Cotton (200 g/m²).

Order from our shop.

We spread our filth on a mini tour on Japanese soil in 2017. Low Fidelity Assaults released a tape that contains two different sets fron this trip: An old school set with songs from the early demo, EP and split recordings and a “Brain Eater” setlist with songs from the first album only.

There are two different versions available: white edition and black edition. For more info and to purchase this live album go to our shop.

The “Brain Eater” set was also recorded with several cameras and is online on YouTube:

We’ll team up with CARNAL TOMB for a four days mini tour at the end of February 2020:
