Rottrevore... a 4-piece band hailing from Pittsburg, USA, made themselves known by a raw and low-tuned Death Metal during the late ´80s - all the way up to the early ´90s by releasing a demo (THE EPITOME OF PANTALGIA in 1990), a couple of 7-inch EPs (COPULATION OF THE VIRTUOUS AND VICIOUS on Relapse´s so-called "Single Series" in 1991 and FORCINATION IN DELIRIUM on the Dutch Cenotaph Records in 1992), a few songs for some compilations and sort of a last crown of their career, one full-lenght album was recorded for the Spanish Drowned Productions in 1993, titled INIQUITOUS (which seems to such a hard item to find nowadays; even from eBay!). The band gained lots of status as one of the heaviest and most brutal underground Death Metal bands back in the day and they indeed enjoyed a pretty large following through all those years when they existed.

However, Rottrevore neither appealed me that much nor I liked them that much for some strange reason the way like I honored so many other underground Death Metal acts at that time; now I´m referring with this to such bands as Pyrexia, Suffocation, Funebre, Carnage, Nihilist/Entombed, Necrovore, Gorguts, etc. For me Rottrevore was basically a bit too "noisy Death Metal act (just like a band like Mortician has always been)" that never caused any THAT big reactions in me after all. They were probably just a bit too monotous, cold and kind of a teensy-weensy uninspirational band for me music-wise that never got my blood boiling in a sheer excitement or anything alike. Just never... :=/

Anyway, for the true fans of the band Necroharmonic Productions has done quite a remarable cultural thing by putting together all their rare demo/EP/compilation songs and releasing them all in one CD. So if you feel you have missed something from Rottrevore for all these years, then here´s your chance to make an investment for.
