Rotting Earth started in 2005 as a one man project by founder Lord Diablo (vocals/guitar). The music was produced by programming the drums while Lord Diablo laid down the rhythm, lead guitars, bass, and vocals manually. After a few compositions, 'Infest Productions' from Peru was interested in the works.
Lord Diablo and new recruit Loki had known each other for years and Lord Diablo was currently helping Loki in a project he was working on. Loki decided to join Rotting Earth to combine their music projects together in one versatile project, but neither he or his replacement Master Fire worked out, leaving Lord Diablo alone again to try out other musicians. Diskery has no details as to the success of this project at time of writing.
