Wormrot are a Singaporean grindcore band formed in 2007, right after its founding members had completed their mandatory two years of National Service.
The band were discovered in late December 2009 by Digby Pearson, the owner of record label Earache, in a mixtape posted at the Invisible Oranges blog. Pearson downloaded the mixtape and while listening to the compilation, found that most bands were uninteresting until he heard the song "Born Stupid" from Wormrot. Only a few days later, he discovered that the mixtape was compiled by Andrew Childers of the Grind and Punishment blog. Pearson then accessed the blog for more information and read that Childers had just blogged his top ten of the year, and Wormrot were atop of the grindcore 2009 chart. This spurred Pearson to download (albeit illegally) Wormrot's full-length debut, Abuse, from MediaFire and investigate them properly. Pearson was amazed when he discovered that the band were from Singapore, as well as impressed with the album's quality and the band's "ambition, hard work ethic, and willingness to put [its home country] and Asian grindcore in the global map." Wormrot were approached by Pearson on the band's MySpace page, asking if they were interested in joining Earache's roster. The band searched for the label credentials in a forum and after receiving positive responses from others users, Wormrot signed a recording contract with Earache in late January 2010.

Earache reissued Abuse in Europe on 13 April 2010 and in the United States on 8 June 2010.To promote the album's reissue, Wormrot toured Europe between late April and June 2010.


This band is so fucking badass!
