Portland, Oregon-based death-grind outfit Rank and Vile recently announced the forthcoming October 18th release of their debut album, redistribution of flesh. Formed by musicians who had already honed their craft in many Portland-based projects over the years, Rank and Vile came to life in 2018 with shared chemistry and a clear vision for the band from their inception. Immediately wasting no time to get going, the group promptly released an energetic three-song EP in late 2018 called chameleon bastard. along with beginning to play live shows.
Not even a full year later and Rank and Vile are ready to unleash even more pissed off and destructive music with redistribution of flesh. In the world of grindcore where speed is god above all else, the power of quality riffs and killer songwriting continues to be the X factor for grind acolytes like Rank and Vile who desire to carve out their own path. Through the incorporation of down-tempo crushing heaviness and grooves woven into their sound, the band puts their own personal stamp on death-grind in an exciting way.
The group cites influences ranging from Rotten Sound, Magrudergrind, Entombed, Gatecreeper, and Black Breath. Fans of those bands will find much to love throughout every annihilating burst of fury redistribution of flesh. contains.
Today the band partnered with No Clean Singing to premiere “killdozer.”, the albums second single
You can listen to Rank and Vile – “killdozer.” HERE
No Clean Singing comments on the premiere of “killdozer.”
“Savagery and a taste for slaughtering mayhem come through loud and clear in the song, but the riffs are real, the grooves are punishing, and the guitar tone is deliciously foul. As a result, “killdozer.” is fiendishly addictive — just like everything else on this album. If you doubt our word, check out the title track, which was the first one released from the album in advance of its release.”
