Rottrevore - Biography

This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.



The band issued the demo "The Epitome of Pantalgia", recorded at Alternative Studios with engineer Bob McCutcheon, in June 1990. In May of the following year ROTTREVORE cut the song "Disembodied" for a compilation EP entitled "Pantaglia". The 7" single "Copulation of the Virtuous & Vicious" arrived in September for Relapse Records. Another 7", "Fornication in Delirium", was delivered in 1992 through Dutch imprint Cenotaph Rec. Bob O'Lexa featured as drummer on the latter sessions, cut at Gama Studios. However, his replacement, Jason Graham, was included on the sleeve photographs. At the same session the band tracked "Clogged Sewer Pipe" for the "Son of Bllleeeeaaauuurrrrgghhh!" Grindcore compilation.

The album "Iniquitous" was recorded over just two days in February 1993 at Audiomation Studios, Pittsburgh with engineer Joe West and issued late that year by spanish label Drowned Productions. Recording roster for this effort comprised vocalist/ guitarist Mark Mastro, guitarist Chris Weber, bassist Chris Free and drummer Jason Graham. Only 1.000 copies of the CD were pressed before the label's demise and change of name to Repulse Records (later Xtreem Music). Bootleg vinyl copies subsequently surfaced in spring '09

Necroharmonic Rec. published the archive compilation "Disembodied" in 2005. This featured five tracks from the "The Epitome of Pantalgia" demo, three songs taken from the "Copulation of the Virtuous and Vicious" EP, two tracks from the "Fornication in Delirium" EP, "Clogged Sewer Pipe" from the "Son of Bllleeeeaaauuuurrrrgghhh!' compilation EP, "Disembodied" from the compilation "Pantalgia" and a closing untitled song written to honour "a guy they saw on Route 70 sucking on a ladies shoe"

Xtreem Music reissued a remastered "Iniquitous" on 1st July 2009 on both CD and 12"LP green vinyl LP format along with the first official shirt of this album. This new version features three live bonus tracks from 1992 and sees this masterpiece properly released & distributed 16 years after its inception.
