WORMROT POSTS SOUTH EAST ASIA TOUR BLOG

January 20th, 2011

Singapore grindcore trio WORMROT have just finished a mini-tour of South East Asia, which included the band’s first ever time visiting Thailand and Vietnam – where the band was forced to play two songs for permit officers prior to the show, in order to be approved and allowed to perform.

Following their return home, WORMROT have written a tour blog to detail their unique experience, including being one of the first and only grindcore bands to play in Vietnam.

Some excerpts from the tour blog follow:

14 Jan 2011 – Johor Bahru, Malaysia
“The show in Embrace Hall was fucking awesome.  There were some guys from Penang who took a 12 hours train ride just to see Wormrot!  That was really touching and we really appreciate their support.  Everyone seemed to have fun; moshing, dancing, stage dive, etc…”

15 Jan 2011 – Bangkok, Thailand
“It is our first time in Thailand so we didn’t know what to expect from the crowd… Turns out to be a killer!  Crazy, crazy Thai crowd!!!  There were about 70+ people in total but it seemed like there were 100 people in there.  Stomping the stage and dancing like they’ve been possessed!  It was like a Thai Boxing competition!”

16 Jan 2011 – Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
“When we reached Ho Chi Minh City Airport at around 9.40am, the Security Police Officers checked our luggage.  They would not let us through as we were carrying merchandise, especially CDs.  One of them told me that he can let us go IF we gave them 3 of our Abuse CDs as there were 3 officers.  We gave them the CDs and that settled everything.  Hope they are into Grind coz I figured they might get heart attack when they listen to it.

“Again we did not expect anything much as it was also our 1st time in Vietnam.  So, when the crowd went crazy during Wormrot’s set, it was really mind-blowing for us as most of them were not Metalheads.  Some even brought their kids for goodness sake!  But all ended well with everyone being so supportive that there’s nothing more we could ask for.”

WORMROT – NEW TRACK, NEW ALBUM ART, NEW TOUR

January 12th, 2011

Singapore’s #1 grindcore export, WORMROT have released a brand new track from their forthcoming album, DIRGE. The track, entitled “Manipulation,” is a minute-long burst of ferocity, terror and outright aggression. It hits all of the marks that have endeared WORMROT to the worldwide metal underground.

“Manipulation,” along with the rest of DIRGE was completed less than 10 days ago. Drums were completed on January 4th, guitars, vocals, mixing and mastering were completed in various days ending on January 10th. In many ways, “Manipulation” is as raw as WORMROT gets — a hell of a way to raise the already high expectations for DIRGE.

Check out “Manipulation,” the debut track from WORMROT‘s forthcoming album, DIRGE, as well as a  first look at the album’s cover art, created by Andrei Bouzikov (MUNICIPAL WASTE, SKELETONWITCH, CANNABIS CORPSE) below:

DIRGE arrives in North America on May 3rd.

The rumors are true! WORMROT will be grinding up the audience at the Scion Rock Fest. It takes place in Pomona, CA on March 5th at the Fox Theater and The Glass House.. While the wait is on to announce whom WORMROT will be playing with, we can also now confirm that Scion will not be their only US gig. The band has a full scale US tour that will take WORMROT from coast to coast in March and April, including a stop at SXSW. Dates will be announced soon.

WORMROT‘s debut album, ABUSE, is available now worldwide featuring 23 tracks of pure grindcore. Get the album now in North America along with several exclusive mercy and vinyl combos at http://earache.com/uswebstore/index.php/cPath/667_674_733.

WORMROT ENTERING THE STUDIO IN JANUARY TO RECORD NEW ALBUM, “DIRGE”

December 17th, 2010

The critically acclaimed grind act, WORMROT will be heading into Singapore’s TNT Music Productions this January to record a brand new album entitled DIRGE. With this being the full-length followup to ABUSE, the band promises to bring their breakneck grind tones to grim new lows. Frontman, Arif Rot is highly excited about the band’s new material and wants the world to know about it:

“We are definitely stoked to get this album out. We are working extra hard on this one. EXTRA FUCKING HARDER THAN ABUSE. We are currently in the rehearsal studio still writing songs and making some minor adjustments and what not. If you are digging Abuse and also from our latest split with I ABHOR, then u might dig the new album. We’ll be in the studio for “DIRGE” first week of January. NEW YEAR WITH A NEW DOSAGE OF GRIND!”

WORMROT‘s new album, DIRGE is due out in Spring 2011.

MetalSucks
Axl Rosenberg called ABUSE one of his top 15 metal albums of 2010. “There were other awesome grind albums this year which easily could have made this list” says Axl, “but nothing felt quite as furious as Abuse.”

WOMROT‘s own Arif Rot also created his own 2010 best-of list for MetalSucks. Read it here: http://www.metalsucks.net/2010/12/15/the-best-metal-albums-of-2010-as-chosen-by-metal-musicians-themselves-part-iv/

WORMROT CONTINUES TO ABUSE NORTH AMERICA IN BLOG FORM

September 28th, 2010

As Singapore’s underground grind sensations, WORMROT have been steadily touring North America for the first time, they’ve been blogging about their experiences for the seminal extreme music resource, Invisible Oranges. On their 2nd exclusive piece for the site, WORMROT talks about eating pizza every day, their love for Wal-Mart and Denny’s as well as their first encounter with a Texas-sized flood:

“The next morning, we left the place at around 8:30am. Had our usual snappy Starbucks coffee with breakfast from Arby’s and head off to Oklahoma City for a gig at The Conservatory. Another long ass drive! What was supposed to be a 10 hours drive became 12 hours due to some complications on the highway in Amarillo, Texas. For the 1st time in our lives, we experienced real flood!!! The flood was so bad that some cars were covered in water. That totally sucks big time, man! We were damn lucky not to get stuck in the flood coz all the Wormrot boys can’t swim, for goodness sake!! Traffic was slow coz they had to block some parts of the road. And so we arrived late while the 1st band was playing. No bullshit, just load in and fucking play! Another small turnout for us considering the size of the place. LOL… But it was a fun gig. Sound system was good and the crowd was crazy, too. There was no place for us to sleep that night. so Mike h ad to drive to a hotel so that we can all have our beauty sleep. Oh yeah, the promoter did get us some food though. Pizzas.”
