LAY DOWN ROTTEN Parts Ways With Guitarist, Announces Replacement

Guitarist Daniel Jakobi has left German death metallers LAY DOWN ROTTEN for "personal reasons" and has been replaced by the band's "old buddy" Daniel "Kensington" Seifert.

LAY DOWN ROTTEN released its fifth album, "Gospel Of The Wretched", in May 2009 via Metal Blade Records (May 8 in Germany). The CD was recorded at the Desert Inn studios in Germany and was mixed by Dan Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY, BLOODBATH) at Unisound studios in Örebro, Sweden.

According to a press release, "'Gospel Of The Wretched' not only features nine songs of supreme death metal but also guest appearances by three of the most legendary death metal singers in history: Martin van Drunen (HAIL OF BULLETS, ASPHYX, PESTILENCE), Marc Grewe (MORGOTH) and Dan Swanö.
