Doom Rot Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?

Before this project I played in many bands. But my problem of communicating with people made itself felt. Six months ago I started playing music in my home Studio. I had the idea to start a one man project. I originally planned to play Groove/Death Metal. But when I started writing music, there were a lot of Black Metal elements in it. I really liked how it all blends and I decided to act. And so the story of my project began.

2.Can you tell us a little bit more about the musical style you have went for on your recordings so far?

I'm a big fan of Swedish school of Melodic Death Metal and Black Metal. I liked the way they blends, I also liked the addition of Groove elements. Groove riffs that "rocks", melancholy of Melodic Death Metal, anger and darkness of Black Metal. In addition, I listen to a lot of different music and each in its own way influenced all this.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with your music?

Of course death and destruction! (Joke.) In the lyrics most often I write about my misanthropy, human lust, the loss of people that were close to me, and about feelings of loneliness. Also sometimes about the mythical and mystical themes. In the lyrics I most often write "as is", without hidden meanings. I want to communicate my thoughts and feelings to the audience more clearly.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Doom Rot'/

The meaning of the most banal. Doom represents the destructive activities of people. Rot - that people are just soulless meat that will die and rot. And I'm also a fan of game Doom.

5.With this project you record everything by yourself, are you open to working with other musicians or do you prefer to work solo?

I am ready to work with other people in the recording and production of other musicians. I have two dreams and one of them is to work with sound and help others with it. I get wild pleasure from it, ready to sit in the Studio all day and night. As part of my project, I don't want to work with anyone. It is only mine and only I can Express my thoughts correctly.

6.You have also done an 'Immortal' cover, what was the decision behind doing your own version of one of their songs?

Immortal once pushed me to make music alone. I was very inspired by them. And just recently, I decided to cover the song "Tyrants", thereby paying tribute to them. If it wasn't for them, maybe my project wouldn't have happened.

7.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?

You know, before I didn't see the point in subscribing to the label, because I could solve all my problems and questions myself. But now I'm open to suggestions. I have more work, less time to do other things. For example: to make CDs, organize concerts and so on. It's getting harder to do everything alone. So yeah, I wouldn't mind working with someone on that.

8.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of extreme metal?

Honestly, I was surprised how well people perceived my work. I haven't heard any negative reviews yet, which is strange nowadays. I am eternally grateful to all of them, I wish them only good from the bottom of my heart.

9.Where do you see yourself heading into as a musician during the future?

I rush from one thought to another, but it would be a pleasure for me to sit in the Studio and work with my music, to work with other musicians. Engage in sound engineering. Sometimes to give concerts. I just want to make music as much, as good, and as long as possible. I'll do it until I die.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays/

From Black Metal: Immortal, Burzum, Darkthrone, Watain. Of Melodic/Death Metal: Death, In Flames, Dark Tranquillity, The Duskfall, At The Gates, Insomnium, Amon Amarth, Helltrain. From Groove/Death: Feared, Machine Head, DevilDriver. Currently I often listen to Sylosis, In Flames, Celldweller, The Prodigy, Strapping Young Lad, Hypocrisy, Children Of Bodom. So many things, I am always with music.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?

I love to take pictures, to cook, I also love computer games. But all this is given little time due to the heavy workload.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Yes. Thank you very much for the interview!
I want to say that I will continue to try to please people with my creativity.
And a couple of off-topic thoughts: happiness is doing what you really like. And when it is estimated by people, it is doubly happiness.

Doom Rot/Territory Of Solitude/2019 Single Review


  This  is  a  review  of  another  recording  from  Russia's  Doom  Rot  which  continues  his  melodic  mixture  of  black,  doom,  death  and  groove  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  self  released  2019  single   "Territory  Of  Solitude".

  Clean  playing  starts  off  the  single  along  with  some  whispered  vocals  a  few  seconds  alter  which  also  evolve  into  blackened  screams  once  the  music  goes  into  a  heavier  direction.  The  riffs  also  add  in  a  great  amount  of  melody  along  with  the  solos  and  leads  being  done  in  a  very  melodic  style.

  The  music  also  adds  in  elements  of  death,  doom  and  groove  metal  along  with  all  of  the  musical  instruments  also  having  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.  The  second  track  is  a  cover  of  Immortal's  "Tyrants"  and  all  of  the  music  sticks  to  either  a  slow  or  mid  tempo  direction.

  On  this  recording  Doom  Rot  remains  true  to  his  melodic  mixture  of   black,  doom,  death  and  groove  metal.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  for  being  a  self  released  recording  while  the  lyrics  cover  human  isolation,  fear,  loss  and  cruelty  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Doom  Rot  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  melodic  black,  doom,  death  and  groove  emtal,  you  should  check  out  this  single.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Territory  Of  Solitude".  8  out  of  10.

Doom Rot/Portrait Of A Deadman/2019 Full Length Review


  Doom  Rot  are  a  solo  project  from  Russia  that  plays  a  melodic  mixture  of  black,  doom,  death  and  groove  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  self  released  2019  album  Portrait  Of  A  Deadman".

  A  very  heavy  sound  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  aggressive  blackened  metal  screams  a  few  seconds  later.  Elements  of  groove  metal  can  also  be  heard  in  some  of  the  guitar  riffing  along  with  the  solos  and  leads  being  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  and  you  can  also  hear  some  doom  metal  influences  in  the  slower  sections  of  the  songs.

  A  lot of  the  music  also  shows  an  influence  of  melodic  death  metal   while  the  riffs  also  utilize  a  great  amount  of  melody.  All  of  the  musical  instruments  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  as  well  as  a  couple  of  tracks  also  adding  in  a  brief  use  of  clean  playing  and  synths,  clean  vocals  can  also  be  heard  briefly  and  the  music  sticks  to  mostly  a  slow  or  mid  tempo  direction.

  Doom  Rot  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  black,  melodic  death,  doom  and  groove  metal  and  mixes  them  together  to  create  a  sound  of  his  own. The  production  sounds  very  professional  for  being  a s elf  released  recording  while  the  lyrics  cover  human  isolation,  fear,  lust  and  cruelty  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Doom  Rot  is  a  very  great  sounding  melodic  mixture  of  black,  doom,  death  and  groove  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out t his  solo  project.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Incessant  Loss  Of  Lives"  and  "Wild  Lust  Pt.  2".  8  out  of  10.
