<![CDATA[Scene Magazine CD Review: Shred Rot 12-28-12]]> by

With lyrics that make you want to shield the ears of any close-by babes, you'd never picture the band as the young, seemingly innocent, high school trio they are. For three Cleveland guys who got together a little over two years ago, Nuthing Extra Special is a hell of a way to come out of the gate. — Nikki Hunt

<![CDATA[I Am Entertainment Magazine's Review of Shred Rot's 1st Album]]> Shred Rot is utterly - ridiculously - insanely - awesomely rockadocious, and their new
album release, Nuthin Extra Special is truly an extra special project!
 Who the h-e-double-
hockey-stix left the gate open and let these madmen into the yard?!
The first time I heard Shred Rot's single "Scars From Mars" in 2011 I knew they'd eventually release an album full of hot music!

 The lead vocalist (Matt Miller) has one of the most uniquely incredible singing voices I've in
the rock music in a long time and you can't ever mistake him for anyone else. The
drummer (Scott Drazdik) is ridiculously amazing and Nick Reinmann can slapa-da-bayass
man! Overall, Shred Rot's project 'Nuthin Extra Special' is one of the best alternative grit rock
albums I've heard in 2012. Review by: Senseitional
