Three musicians that shared the same vision of bringing a distinctive band to the underground metal community conceived Her Rotting Ways in Niles, MI during the fall of 2004. Influenced by Death/Black/Thrash and Doom Metal, Her Rotting Ways combines these and a melodic sense of violence to construct one of the more original sounding bands within their genre. The ever-changing riff exchange between guitar, bass and drums keeps the listeners busy before the onslaught of sheer vocal terror rings the ears. Intermittent melodies and soaring guitar solos share center stage with the darkened shroud Her Rotting Ways casts abroad, seducing the audience with its succubus-like tendencies. The bands name symbolizes the positive and negative sides of what some say to be the most powerful and influential being known to man.Woman. The demise of Liberty standing on the New York Harbor, the wicked winds of change redesigning our landscape compliments of Mother Nature, the scars left behind from a love once lost, or the simple seduction from the innocent beauty all women possess can describe what we now call Her Rotting Ways.

With their first EP "Germination = Alienation" debuting in February of 2005 and showing their diversity and imagination, their second EP "Let The Suffering Commence" released June 2005,is a little more chained to the wall of pure Death/Doom Metal really showcasing the bands melodic yet violent traits.
