Las Vegas-based metal band Semi-Rotted — which boasts a collective pedigree that also impressively spans multiplatinum chart-topping heavyweights Five Finger Death Punch and Gemini Syndrome and have tallied over five million views and streams independently — have added veteran extreme metal drummer Tim Yeung (Morbid Angel, Divine Heresy, Vital Remains) to their lineup.
Watch the video featuring George CorpseGrinder Fisher from Cannibal Corpse below:
Frontman Jeremy Spencer has known Yeung since 2007, when the drummer was a member of Divine Heresy.
“Getting a drummer the caliber of Tim Yeung really allows freedom when creating because you know he’s gonna add the bad ass chops to push the material over the top,” Spencer shares. “There’s nobody I wanted more than Tim, so I thought I’d reach out by chance he might be available and he was! He instantly starting taking the songs to another level when he started drumming on them.”
The band has been hard at work finishing 25 songs.
One result is a breakneck slaughter-fest called “Bloodbath,” which features Corpsegrinder of Cannibal Corpse as a guest vocalist.
