"R.O.T.N.S. really know how to bring that old thrash sound current! Their NYHC influenced style mixed in with their original mojo is something that appeals to many extreme music enthusiast worldwide! Killer band!" – Roger Miret (AGNOSTIC FRONT) "What a sick mixture of some of the greatest influences from the 90's, I love what they are doing!" - Billy Graziadei (BIOHAZARD) "Hardcore will never die as long as bands like R.O.T.N.S. are carrying the torch. A crushing album!" - Mille Petrozza (KREATOR) “This is some HEAVY stuff with a youthful, hip hop kind a flare/flavor, what can I say… they definitely demonstrate their saiya style!“ - Freddy Cricien (MADBALL) Manga themed (Japanese graphic novels) hardcore metal outfit RISE OF THE NORTHSTAR has launched a competition for their fans to win a hand drawn manga by singer Vithia.
