Wormrot Is "Fallen Into Disuse" With New Video

Grindcore outfit Wormrot has just released a brand new music video for the track "Fallen Into Disuse" taken from the forthcoming album "Voices," which will be released on October 14th via Earache Records.

The band had this to say this about the song: "Unconscious abandonment from reality. Desperately trying to be accepted into the norm. At the very least. Failed miserably."

Living in a country that executes more of its citizens than any other in the world helps to maintain the rage and anxiety that fuels the best grind. After a 4 year hiatus the hottest name in grindcore is back with a much awaited third studio album. "Voices" offers up 20 ferocious slabs of punk-fueled grind of the highest calibre. Feral grindcore in the grand tradition of early Earache releases like Napalm Death, Brutal Truth and Terrorizer.

Hailing from Singapore, Wormrot are Earache’s first ever signing from the East, having risen to prominence via series of primitive underground releases.

The track list for the album is: More...

Wormrot Clarifies Plans To Go On Hiatus

Singaporean grindcore trio Wormrot recently wrapped up a six-week tour of Europe, which culminated in a performance at Obscene Extreme festival in the Czech Republic.

Following the tour, the band revealed plans for taking a break from touring for a few years to attend to personal commitments. Contrary to rumours however, Wormrot is not currently disbanding and plans to return with a new album in 2013 or 2014, with plans to tour again in 2015.

Wormrot vocalist Arif Rof has issued the following statement:

"In regards to our post about taking a break on Facebook, some people misunderstood that we have broken up right after the recent tour. But that is definitely false information. We are taking a break from TOURING as we have other personal commitments to attend this time around. It's definitely not because of what happened to us during the tour (ripped off, abandoned etc.). That was part and parcel of touring. No big deal and it's probably a dead fucking issue now anyway. NONE of these relate to why we are taking a break.

"We played a couple of new songs on the tour from the next album. And still writing as we speak. So calm down, get your facts straight. All you need to know is that we are still very much alive and still writing new material for the upcoming album. We have been touring four years straight, every year. So we need a breather before we rage again across the globe. I said it before and I will say it again: WORMROT IS NOT DEAD. PERIOD."

Earache Releases "World's Shortest Album"

Earache Records is celebrating 25 years of bringing extreme metal to the masses and, as part of the celebrations, has released the "World's Shortest Album," striking fear into the hearts of radio DJs everywhere.

Earache is no stranger to world records, having previously claimed two official Guinness World Records, for the world's shortest single with Napalm Death's "You Suffer," as well as the world's shortest music video with Brutal Truth's "Collateral Damage."

Now, Earache is taking the idea of "shorter, faster, louder" to the extreme, with the shortest, fastest and loudest album around. "Earache: World's Shortest Album" celebrates brevity as an art form, featuring 13 extreme, straight-to-the-point tracks totalling just 87 seconds, smashing the previous 121-second record held by Canadian dance group Chromeo.

The attempt at setting the new record for the world's shortest album has been rejected by Guinness however, which no longer recognizes "world's shortest" records, explaining:

"The nature of competing to make something the 'shortest' by its very nature trivialises the activity being carried out, and Guinness World Records has been forced to reject many claims of this kind. As such, we have been forced to cease listing records for the shortest song, shortest poem and indeed the shortest concert."

"Earache: World's Shortest Album" is still available to the public however, and is out now on iTunes at this location.

The full track listing and times for the album are as follows:

01. Napalm Death - You Suffer (00:04)
02. Napalm Death - Dead (00:05)
03. Napalm Death - Your Achievement (00:06)
04. Wormrot - False Grind Sodomy (00:04)
05. Wormrot - You Suffer But Why Is It My Problem (00:04)
06. Brutal Truth - Collateral Damage (00:04)
07. A.C. - Howard Wulkan's Bald (00:09)
08. Lawnmower Deth - Be Scene Not Heard (00:07)
09. Painkiller - Trailmarker (00:08)
10. Brutal Truth - Blockhead (00:07)
11. Morbid Angel - Bil Ur-Sag #2 Lava (00:06)
12. A.C. - Windchimes Are Gay (00:10)
13. Insect Warfare - Street Sweeper (00:13)

Total running time - 01:27

OpEd

The Ultimate Sacrifice

To the diehard music fan, there is hardly an act more inconceivable than parting with The Collection. Most metal heads, those of us who still buy CDs, records, and even tapes, anyway, will pawn everything of value when times get tough, move back in with our parents, beg, borrow, steal, and take just about any form of mind numbing and depraved work imaginable to keep The Collection in our grubby, greasy little hands. Sadly, even this isn’t always enough, and in these economically turbulent and uncertain times, the hour inevitably comes when hard decisions must be made, and priorities must be put in order.
