The darkness is ever present on Rotten Minds third album "Fading Into Oblivion." Ten tracks of eccentric punk expressions that clashes with a cold and nihilistic atmosphere and creates a soulful and personal album. Tracks as Years of Decay and the title track Fading Into Oblivion' got an almost gothic approach to its gloominess at the same time as a bright light of hope is tangible. The album also contains classic songwriting with songs as Restless Souls, Aspiration and Trouble Child that gets stuck in your head. A huge amount of integrity surrounding the melancholy melodies of the ten tracks that bring to mind a modern Scandinavian sound. The album finds its greatness in its stripped-down sound and its simplicity. "Fading Into Oblivion" was just like the debut album Im Alone Even With You recorded by Mattias Kennhed at the Communichaos Media Clay Station. The new album gives you everything you expected from Rotten Mind, and so much more. It´s a combination of the band's debut Im Alone Even With You and their second same titled album. Its an explosion of sounds from the post-punk and garage rock world. Rotten Mind can be found somewhere in a modernized 80´s versatility between UK-acts as The Vibrators, The Adverts, and US-bands as Christian Death and T.S.O.L. It´s a band that at the same time perhaps is best to set side by side with contemporary acts as Crusades, Iceage, Radioactivty, Metz or High Tension Wires.
