The UK's Gorerotted have decided to take the big step of changing their name to THE ROTTED! Having worked so hard on their new album "Get Dead Or Die Trying", the lads felt that due to the huge progression they've made from previous releases musically and lyrically and after frequent line-up changes that this was the only right thing to do.

Says frontman Ben McCrow: "The motives behind what we were doing with Gorerotted have changed over the years, and as a mark of respect for what we achieved, for previous band members and for fans, we didn't feel it was right to continue under our previous monicker. This album is gonna blow people away, I couldn't even classify it for you if I tried, all I can say is its heavy as fuck, catchy as hell and a piece of work we're all incredibly proud of. People have been affectionally referring to us as The Rotted for some time now, so it seemed like a decent change to us."

wow, that's really bizarre...
Cryptopsy should have changed their name because of the huge style change.. I don't expect Gorerotted to change that much really..

I really liked the name Gorerotted.. "The Rotted" will take time to get used to

Changing their name to "The Rotted"? What the hell.. I thought Gorerotted was a really cool name, and now they change it..

I hope progression means progression and not the "Let's use loads of breakdowns" progression.
