ROOTS OF EARTH it`s a hardcore metal band from Malang East Java, Indonesia. Main influences are Congress, Liar, Spineless, Sektor, Deformity, Firestone… basically old H8000 scene.
They started in 2013 under the name: APARTHETIC with Mario (vocals), Agung (guitar), Doni (guitar), Samid (drums) and Galang (bass). Band wrote few songs but after Doni left – band decided to change name to ROOTS OF EARTH (name was taken from Testament album “Dark Roots of Earth”). They wrote more songs and recorded EP “Holocaust” which was released on CD by FTPinc. and On.Ward Records (CD included a cover of Belgian Spinelsess “enter the devil”).
2017 brought small changes inside the band – Mario left and Agan (Looking Back) replaced him. In June they started working on new record which should be available soon.
Lineup: Agan – vocals, Agung – guitar, Samid – drums, Galang – bass
