Boris Records Announce Official Vinyl Release for ROT's Diabolus (The Unholy Rot): Demo #1 1990!

Way back in 1990, a quartet by the name of ROT released a demo tape entitled, Diabolus (The Unholy Rot): Demo #1 1990, one of the most strikingly raw and guttural death metal recordings to ever come from the Atlanta scene. That tape has lain obscurity for more than 33 years, existing only as a grainy video buried deep on the Internet.

Now, Boris Records is proud to announce the first official vinyl release of Diabolus (The Unholy Rot): Demo #1 1990 on October 6. The album includes ROT’s original four-song demo EP remastered, along with two previously unreleased cuts, “Baphomet” and “Violent Beast” (rehearsal), as well as a live show from 1991.

The album also includes a recently unearthed live recording, and an in-depth biography from John Mincemoyer (printed on 11x11 insert), packed with dozens of never-seen-before photos, illustrating the countless hurdles and seemingly insurmountable odds the group faced during their short but fiery existence.

The remastered title track is available to stream now at:
