At the dawn of the 90´s, Shibuya district, 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 visual universe of a dirty bunch of furyos, dunces to the core, who thrive on Shonen Manga.
The 5 band members have witnessed the golden age that has seen the birth and global expansion of American Hip-Hop, of Machine Head’s and PANTERA‘s powerful groove metal, of New-York Hardcore, and of the catchy but uncompromising vibes of RATM, KORN or DEFTONES.
ROTN is the merger of those two worlds: the messages of hope, bravery, and revenge spread by classic 80’s Manga characters such as Kenshiro, Seiya, or Kawato, are brought to the listener’s face through deadly thrash riffing and a destructive flow of words.
