Skyler Isaac Very sad that I missed out on the cassette version of this one. But I'll just have to make do with these three brilliant and addictive tracks. Pure metal fun. Favorite track: Laid to Rot.

FETID ZOMBIE Leesburg, Virginia

FETID ZOMBIE, the blasphemous and death-obsessed, solo effort of reputable underground death metal illustrator Mark Riddick, was born in January 2007. Riddick makes no apologies or compromises for his unique vision, offering a myriad of influences from hard rock/heavy metal to technical death metal. Prepare for an unruly onslaught of anti-faith sentiment and old school death metal worship! ... more

Track Name: Nymph of Tartarus
Oh, chthonic dweller of the deep, Oh, loyal servant of the grand Titan
Oh, guardian of the deep abyss, Oh, mother of monstrosities
Serpent jailoress of the blackest torturous pit
Black wings spread, venomous tail ascends
Arise writhing to your contender—mighty Zeus
Monstrous heads howling and venomous serpents spew
Slithering about gates of the deep
Viper, scorpion, woman, and beast
Imprisoner of the hundred-handed ones
Oh, nymph of Tartarus
Roaming about portals of the deep
Viper, scorpion, woman, and beast
Rouse the tempests, arm the gales
Scaly war-godess from the beyond
Track Name: Oracle of Death
Celebrants gather to summon the dead, peering into Acheronian waters
Through dark tunnels and remote corridors
They journey in darkness to witness the dead
Sacrifice the lamb, chant the prayer, Nekyomanteia rises into the air
Underground ritual, onward to Ephyra
Visions await, enter through the gate of Hades
Follow the waters through the fog and mist
Spiritual passage, deep into the abyss
Track Name: Laid to Rot
Pale rider, steed of doom, reaping life, spreading gloom
Ashen eyes gazing down on the living, cold stare—unforgiving
Sunken eyes, face afright, all-consuming, black as night
Laid to rot in the tomb, gone now forever, from flesh to bone
Laid to rot in the ground, forever rotting 'neath the burial mound
Unholy passage into the depths, inhale the scent of Death's rotten breath
Into the realm of the dead, all of Hades teeming with red
Eternal unrest, place of dread, forever dwelling with the dead
