Rot are a band from Brazil that plays a mixture of grindcore and power violence and this is a review of t heir double compilation album "Old Dirty Grindcores 2007-1991" which was released by Give Praise Records.
A very fast and brutal grindcore sound starts off the album a long with a great amount of blast beats and growling vocals and you can also hear elements of crust and power violence in t he bands musical style and some of the riffs bring in a small amount of melody and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
Most of the tracks are very short in length and the songs also mix in a lot of old school punk influences and as the compilation progresses more high pitched screams are added into the music and some tracks also mix in elements of noisecore and some tracks also bring in a small amount of clean playing while some songs add in a touch of hardcore and some of the songs are recorded live and their is also a few seconds of spoken word parts and a couple of the songs also brings in a brief use of guitar leads .
Rot played a style of power violence and grindcore that was very brutal, heavy and r aw throughout the years while also having a touch of noisecore and also show why they had a huge influence on the genre, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover gore and real life themes.
In my opinion Rot are a very great sounding mixture of grindcore and power violence and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should c heck out this band. 8/2 out of 10.
