“One circle closes only for another to begin anew. This is the logical conclusion to ‘Impetus of Death’ where the limits of human existence give us a push to even do things in life (art being the pinnacle) – ‘Succumb to Rot’ is the inevitable end where all things must eventually die and give in to the relentless forces of entropy, and disintegrate into nothingness,” reflects guitarist M.M.
The mentally distressing artwork by Vladimir ‘Smerdulak’ Chebakov also continues a tradition of exceptional CORPSESSED album covers. Succumb to Rot was produced, recorded, and mixed by M.M. At Furnace 5034 from October 2020 to January 2021. The album was mastered by D. Lowndes at Resonance Sound Studio. Analog synths on Succumb to Rot were performed by L.Lindqvist
