At the dawn of the 90’s, Shibuya District in Tokyo, Japan. The coins dropping and clinging into the arcade game machines, the lights of the pachinkos and the lively Tokyo district have fuelled the musical inspiration and visuel universe of a dirty bunch of furious. The 5 band members have witnessed the golden age that has seen the global expansion of American Hip-Hop, of groove metal, New-York Hardcore and of the catchy but uncompromising vibes of nu metal.
ROTN is the merger of those two worlds : the messages of hope, bravery and revenge spread by classic 80s/90s Manga characters such as Kenshiro, Seiya or Kawato, are brought to the listeners face through deadly trash riffing and a destructive flow of words.
After going into hiatus due to the global health situation, ROTN is back with its biggest album to date : “SHOWDOWN”. Recorded between 2020 and 2022, ROTN sublimates its love for Japan, shonen manga, fierce breakdowns and 7-strings melodies.
