Portland, Oregon-based death-grind outfit Rank and Vile are proud to announce 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. With an ambitious series of plans already set post-release, Rank and Vile are dedicated to rising through the ranks. This is only the beginning for a very special new band.
Today the band partnered with Invisible Oranges to premiere the title track of their album, “redistribution of flesh.”

Invisible Oranges comments on the premiere of “redistribution of flesh.”
“Hailing from Portland, the four-piece outfit has stretched and contorted its scathing brand of deathgrind into impossible new shapes with the addition of brutal downtempo slams and old-school murkiness into their sound, resulting in material that will simultaneously break your neck and compress your mind.”
“Darting through densely composed instrumental motifs, “redistribution of flesh” seeps and evolves into different shapes quickly and with lithe ability often unseen in deathgrind, following the lodestar of classic death metal despite their convincing grindcore disguise.”
