Rotersand’s 2004 debut album, Truth Is Fanatic is still getting relentless dance floor attention. The album’s 12 impressive tracks convey their creative spectrum. From floor shaking pounders (“Almost Violent” / “Social Distortion”) to emotional ballads (“One level down” / “Hush”), their music is always plausible and authentic. Rotersand’s special mélange of 80′s Pop, Electro, Techno and even classical elements made Truth is Fanatic a truly brilliant debut.
For 2005, Rotersand upped the ante with their follow-up album, Welcome to Goodbye. They dramatically improved their musical style and sound with the album and even gave some of the songs a bit of a Pink Floyd influence. Each song had incredible power and energy from start to finish. Rotersand became a band to be reckoned with.
Having spent 2006 on the road building their reputation as a powerful live act, Rotersand unleashed their eagerly anticipated 3rd album 1023 (ten twenty-three) for 2007. According to Rotersand singer Rasc, the title refers to the room number of a Detroit hotel the trio checked into during their US tour the prior year. “The atmosphere in this derelict, at one time luxurious and now forsaken hotel was both sinister and eerie. We felt as though we were in a combination of a surreal computer game and Stephen King’s “Shining.” Needless to say, the otherworldly atmospheric experience left quite an impression on Rotersand, and can be seen throughout the album. 1023 was an influx of emotions, which is exemplified through the palate of sounds Rotersand used to paint their experiences. The hard and fast paced club hits crashed against the more somber tracks to create a potent dynamic. Following up 1023 was the I Cry EP in 2008.
Rotersand returned for 2009 with a digital only EP, War On Error, and their fourth album, Random Is Resistance. The band’s site eludes: “The system has declared war on error. War against the unpredictable, the imponderable, the incomputable in all of us. In order to fight back, we ought to be less transparent and less calculable – we ought to really become the error in this ever-refining consumerist machinery. Random Is Resistance” Besides the concept behind it, the album is laced with plenty of dance tracks with the signature sound Rotersand is known for: catchy melodies, great bass lines, and intelligible vocals.
