The cover of this album is quite striking. It is a shattered line drawing of a mentally shattered face, and is an apt representation of the music contained within.

Wormrot has always dealt in stripped back, no nonsense grindcore, and that is exactly what “Voices” delivers. Twenty songs, 26 minutes, it is an incredibly intense mindfuck. “Voices” will seem like white noise to many metal fans. Thanks for listening, but this is not for you. This one is for the grinders, the noise freaks, the explorers of sounds at the extreme edge of music. And for devotees of the extreme, it doesn’t get much better than this. The sound is clear and sharp, or at least as sharp as it is supposed to be. Being signed to Earache means the band has a recording budget and access to a decent studio. The distortion and filth is all meant to be there, and isn’t the result of recording in a garage with a wobbly old tape on an ancient Walkman.

And so, riff after meaty riff comes blasting out of the speakers, backed by frenetic, pinpoint accurate drumming, along with throat shredding, hyper-intense shriek/growl vocals.

Yes, there are songs here, and lyrics, obviously, but does it really matter? “Voices” is short, and should be listened to in one sitting. Music as violent and fierce as this is to be actively absorbed, not passively listened to.

"Noise" is a digital EP release by Singapore based grindcore act Wormrot. The EP was released for free through Scion A/V in September 2011. We´re talking a five track, 5:11 minutes long release, so if you´re not already familiar with the band´s music, this is a fast way of getting aquainted.

The music on "Noise" is aggressive crusty grindcore with occassional deeper growling brutal death metal leanings. The musicianship is excellent. We´re talking furiously fast-paced precision playing. Blastbeats but also D-beats and more rythmically challenging parts. The vocals vary between high pitched hardcore screaming and brutal growling and the combination works really well. The well sounding production where all instruments and vocals are audible, brings out the best in the music.

Considering the limitations of grindcore and the fact that this is a very short release, "Noise" features quite a few stylistic changes and successfully display what a great band Wormrot is. A 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is fully deserved.

Released the same year as their full-length album Dirge, Singaporean act Wormrot have also released a short, five-minute EP in the form of Noise. A "noisy" effort indeed, this short blast of grindcore is over before you even know what hit you, and the relentless blast beats and muddy guitar riffs make this a prime example of grindcore in its rawest form. I wouldn't label Noise as a particularly noteworthy release - it's far too short to leave a lasting impression on the listener and the music itself isn't anything particularly new - but it's another solid effort from Wormrot for sure. People who enjoyed Dirge should surely take advantage of this EP's free availability.

The music here is exactly what we've heard from Wormrot on Dirge. Expect angst-ridden, pissed-off, and just plain brutal grindcore with frequent hardcore tendencies. Frantic drumming, eclectic harsh vocal styles, and filthy guitar riffs make up this short EP, and Wormrot doesn't ever allow the listener to catch their breath. When I say that this EP is "like a punch in the face", I say that with complete seriousness - Noise is an extremely fast-paced and heavy adventure that isn't for anyone even remotely faint of heart. The raw, extremely unpolished production makes this EP even filthier, and I think it suits the music perfectly.

Noise may not be a revolutionary statement for the grindcore genre, but it's a decent EP that fans of Wormrot will definitely want to check out. I really wish that there were an additional ten minutes or so on this EP; at this current five-minute length it doesn't have nearly enough time to become a memorable experience. Especially when the music is this fast-paced, five minutes just doesn't give me enough of an adrenaline rush to make this EP particularly noteworthy. All things considered, 2.5 stars seems like a fair score for Noise. It is available for free download, though, so fans and skeptics alike should check it out - after all, one listen will only take up five minutes of your life.

WORMROT Dirge

Wormrot are Singapore's most well-known grindcore act, and their music has been raping people's ears since their formation back in 2007. Dirge, the band's most recent effort for prestigious metal label Earache Records, is an album that will completely annihilate your ears with fast blastbeats, thick riffs, and frantic vocals. This isn't an album for the faint of heart, but anyone searching for music so inaccessible that it initially seems like just a massive wall of "noise" will definitely want to check out Dirge. What the album lacks in originality it makes up for with sheer energy, and Wormrot should not go unnoticed by grindcore fans.

Dirge sounds like it came straight from the garage of angry teenagers - the album's hardcore punk attitude and relentless grindcore atmosphere make this album absolutely just reek with anger and frustration. Song titles like "No One Gives a Shit", "Semiconcious Godsize Dumbass", and "You Suffer But Why Is It My Problem" (I love the Napalm Death reference there) confirm this statement even more definitely. This album isn't easy listening by any stretch, and instead is 18 minutes (yes, you read that correctly) of some of the most brutal grindcore/hardcore punk on the planet. Stretched out over the course of 25 songs, ranging from 4 seconds to around a minute-and-a-half, none of the tracks here are substantially more than short bursts of anger. The music does lack a bit of variation, but for such a short playing time, it never becomes problematic. This isn't the type of music that is meant to be analytically listened to while sitting - this is meant to be experienced live, with mosh pits and the entire ordeal. I can only imagine what a Wormrot concert would be like! The raw, unpolished production further emphasizes Dirge's energetic atmosphere.

All in all, Dirge is a fairly impressive effort from Wormrot with enough adrenaline to shock even the biggest grindcore fans! I can't say that the band is terribly original, and they could still benefit from stronger compositions, but this still currently stands as a very strong effort. Anyone who likes their grindcore with a heavy dose of hardcore punk should find plenty to love here! Wormrot still have some room for improvement, but Dirge is still a very solid effort. 3 stars are deserved here.

"Dirge" is a must for Grindcore fans.

Grindcore is one of the least accessible genres in music; even I was very skeptical in giving this a try, since I am no expert in the genre, at all. In fact, this is my first Grindcore review ever. And thank god it is. Wormrot is a Singapore trio that is at their second effort with “Dirge”, following 2009’s “Abuse”.

Whoever is familiar with the genre and listens to this album, he’ll find traditional elements as well as more innovating ones: the songs have all lightening-fast rhythms, with hammering drums, and those typical wild growls that turned off many listeners who attempted courageously to listen to this genre. The songs’ length is between the thirty seconds and one minute, breaking the normal song structure. But what I loved about this album is that I noticed that here there is something that you almost never hear in Grindcore anymore: the Hardcore Punk influence, that here is very noticeable in the rhythms and sometimes in the vocals as well. I’m sure Napalm Death will be pleased.

The songs in this album are twenty five, the total length of the album is eighteen minutes long. So you can imagine how intense these almost twenty minutes are. The songs are extremely flashy, and flow one into another without you even noticing. Tons of stops and goes, extremely angry and violent parts alternate with more Hardocore moments, like I said before. It seems useless to mention songs, they’re so fast and immediate that you can’t really identify them as songs, but just a different hook of a long eighteen minute track.

An album that with my surprise I enjoyed a lot, it definitely made me want to check out some more Grindcore, and maybe I’ll start getting into the genre. But let’s stick to the present. If you’re a fan of the genre, this is a must. If you’re not, just like I am, check it out anyway, if you want to explore this genre a bit more.
