Exclusive full stream of the new Tortorum offering Rotten.Dead.Forgotten
ZT have teamed up with WTC to bring you a full stream of the new release from Tortorum, who return with Rotten. Dead. Forgotten. It’s been two years since the release of the band’s critically acclaimed second album, Katabasis, and in that time, ubiquitous drummer Dirge Rep has amicably departed TORTORUM’s ranks. Bloodied but unbowed, the trio saw fit to record an all-new mini-album, bearing the ominous title Rotten. Dead. Forgotten.
This title is prescient, and wholly descriptive of the six-track record’s contents. Moving at a slower, more methodical pace, Rotten. Dead. Forgotten. stomps forward with a hideous energy that literally feels DEAD. Like a reanimated corpse or malignant specter, the TORTORUM of Rotten. Dead. Forgotten. has turned a new and no-less-harrowing page here, largely leaving behind the orthodox speed of their massive first two albums and striking upon largely unexplored terrain where space and shade are blackened to a crisp and are patiently pushed forward with a palatable sense of maturity.
