RotorVator is an Industrial/Electronic/Black-Metal Band from Italy.

Rototvator play a wonderfully strange hybrid of Electronic Rock and industrial Metal blended mainly with a huge dose of Black Metal. Well I haven’t heard much of that sort of style of music so KUDOS for the band for opening my mind to their brilliant and strange world.

Well Rotorvator have been going for a few years now and have released a few EP’s which two are available for free Download from their BandCamp Page.

But it’s their latest EP – Heaven which the guys have asked me to look at. What you get is 3 tracks on for 15 mins or so. But it’s an absolute blast of great Electronic Rock/Industrial Metal blended in with great Black Metal riffs.

These guys are really doing something special with their style of music. Throw in some great vocals as well and Heaven is a great EP to show what this band can truly do.

There are added cool distorted noise effects as well which will have you startled and intrigued from the word go.

The EP is superbly played and produced by all involved and shows a great band with a truly original vision. These guys remind me of Genghis Tron in many ways in how they blended their different genres into something you don’t hear much of. Always a great sign in my book.

These guys are a lot heavier but they have the same sort of brilliant experimental nature. Imagine if Nine Inch Nails decided to release a Black Metal album then this would be the crazed and wonderful result.

Awesome stuff. The 3 tracks show this bands talent to great effect. They really know how to right a superb out-there song in the realm of Black Metal. They deserve praise for doing this.

This band have the potential to be the next big thing in Experimental Black Metal and they are a band you will be hearing more of later in 2012 as they are releasing their debut full length on Crucial Blast Records.

And I for one will be buying myself a copy to see where these guys can go on a full length record. As I feel 15 minutes is not enough to experience this great band’s talent and vision.

You can buy this brilliant EP for the low price of £3 and you can download their live earlier release for free. These guys deserve your attention now. Great Stuff Guys. Can’t wait for the full length record.

Highly Recommended.

Rotorator HEAVEN ep first review!

Do not adjust your stereo. The sound you are hearing is not of this world. Something dark and ominous has found a way to slip through the cracks and it's name is Rotorvator. From their own page (link below) we are offered this by way of explanation: "Rotorvator performs violent rituals constantly inspired by everything that is unbearable and unfathomable to the human mind. Its vision of music is one of loud, raw and deliberately offensive sounds, messing up black metal, noise, industrial and psychedelia." Actually, this 3-track EP plays out as if someone had opened up the Necronomicon and decided what the world needed more than anything was a black metal band made up of deadites. With that out in the open it would be wise to arm yourself for what awaits.Whenever you read the words aloud from the book of the dead things get downright twisted. This band was obviously raised on the book of the dead as much as they were extreme black metal and the music of rotted psychedelic rock stars. Find out why this one creeps me out at the link below. Be warned though this one is dark and dismal folks.
