  1. Rotting

    Rotting is the second album by the Brazilian extreme metal band Sarcófago. It was released in August 1989. Prior to recording, drummer D. D. Crazy left the band to join Sextrash, and M. Joker took over on drums. After a short tour, the band headed for the studios. The LP was licensed to Music for Nations in Europe, and in the US the cover was censored. Later, the CD was seized by the authorities from European importers and distributors, once again because of its cover. The album features a much more technical approach to their previous effort, I.N.R.I., and as opposed to a mass of short songs features minimal lengthy songs - the album features 4 tracks on the album over 6 minutes in length. Tracy nearly reaches the 9 minute mark. The guitar recording has a peculiar method where the one guitar recording is played in both speakers with one having a slightly altered pitch to give the impression that two different guitars are playing precisely the same thing. The album stays akin to death metal, featuring several tempo changes throughout and constant riff changes in odd song structures - Tracy has approximately 20 riffs, and the tempo can be clocked at around 260 beats per minute for most of them.
