WORMROT - Dirge [Review]

Genre: Grindcore

Label: Earache Records

Release date: May 3rd, 2011

Reviewer: Paul Williams

Wormrot’s “Dirge” is exactly what you would expect it to be. Pure butt-fuck annihilation of the utmost degree. Simple. As. That.

If you can recall being floored and groped by Wormrot’s “Abuse” then you have nothing to fear when it comes to thinking they might be a one hit wonder; “Dirge” not only takes you down and has a feel about but it, once again, shows that these little Asian buggers can pack one hell of a punch within an album that is only 18 minutes long.

With their old school grind ethics and influences Wormrot don’t contribute anything new to the grindcore genre but they prove that old school is the right school, bitch! From “No One Gives A Shit” through to “The Final Insult”, Wormrot play some filthy as fuck and classically carnivores grind that is raw, randy, and rather retarded. It’s the grindcore way.

All you really need to know about this album is that if you like grindcore in the vein of Napalm Death, Brutal Truth, Nasum, and Insect Warfare, then you’ll probably find yourself falling for this album with its grooves, hyper active drumming, grunts and gurgles. Also, unlike most premature endings, “Dirge” is able satisfy all my grindy windy needs, and still give me time to have a cup of tea before bed. F’in’ A!
