Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of German death metallers LAY DOWN ROTTEN.

Commented the band: "LAY DOWN ROTTEN are nothing but happy about the signing to one of the most respected and most active labels in the world. We are looking forward to a successful and creative collaboration and hope that this new deal helps to spread the word across the borders of Germany. The band has never been more motivated and is about to deliver their best album to date. Be prepared."

LAY DOWN ROTTEN is in the middle of the songwriting process for their upcoming album. The working title is "Reconquering the Pit", and studio time is booked for this summer. The album is scheduled to be released in November 2007. "We have stayed true to our death metal roots and added a bit more brutality," states the band.

LAY DOWN ROTTEN has created quite a buzz in Germany over the last few years, having been described as the most talented and powerful newcomer in death metal in a very long time. The band was formed in 1999, but it was not until 2003 they released their debut album, "Paralyzed by Fear".

Influenced by the brutality of American death and thrash metal acts and the melody lines of Swedish death metal masters, the band released two more albums on Remission Records, "Cold Constructed" and "Breeding Insanity".
