For fifteen years RoToR have been crafting their dry as a bone instrumental sound merging 90s Stoner Rock and 70s Space Rock. From Berlin, founded 1998. First as a trio, now a quartet. Four studio albums and a live album. The fifth chapter now: “5” is the title of the new album, which is due in September via Nois-O-Lution. 8 songs, 43 minutes.
The heavyness of Stoner Rock benefits on RotoR’s “5” from colours and facets ultimately gaining elegance and airiness. Contrasts meet: Stoner and Psychedelic, Kraut and Progressive make encounters and collapse. RoToR’s music has become more sophisticated, more transparent, more diverse, before suddenly the ton-weighing head-shaking part kicks in to take the listener to far away sound-worlds…
For a band of their status we know surprisingly little about RoToR. The band has reached a state of independence by deliberately refusing common marketing strategies. This has allowed RoToR to go their own way with integrity, to keep on keeping on.
