Biography

RABBITS is a power trio from Portland, Oregon. The band comprises one drummer (KG) and two guitarists/vocalists (Sethro and Booze). RABBITS has been described as sludge, hardcore, punk, and thrash, or amalgamations thereof which may be succinctly characterized as “moonshine metal” for the simple, potent, dirty, and often chaotic concoctions RABBITS brews. RABBITS began playing shows in 2005 and began releasing records (vinyl only) in 2006: the self-released “Sloth vs. Bees” 7-inch and the “Lungs” 12-inch split with Under Mountains on Eolian Records. In 2010 RABBITS released the “Hide” 10-inch, also on Eolian Records. Between 2006 and 2010 Rabbits also released several limited-run cassettes and CDRs of live recordings from shows and radio performances. In 2011 Relapse Records released the first full-length RABBITS album, “Lower Forms”, which has been accurately described as a thing of “cracked-out, violent beauty” (Portland Mercury), “totally absurd… in the best possible way” (A.V. Club) and “everything I could possibly hate about a record rolled into one and then served on a piece of shit” (Angry Metal Guy). In 2012 Good to Die released the second RABBITS album, “Bites Rites”, described as “a choppy and rhythmically alarming dig toward hell” (Heavy Planet) that “destroys with crushing, grooving madness” (American Aftermath) and begged the question, “Ever wonder what would happen if you put your Butthole Surfers records through a buzz saw?” 2012 also saw the release of 7-inches on Powerblaster and the (European) Hell Comes Home subscription club.

    @Smirnon: Sorry I forgot there's a pre-defined medium for being chaotic or for kicking ass, next time I'll inform the band to read your dictionary of bullshit limitations for music before going to write songs.

    Lower Forms is a bit frustrating. it's totally awesome at some points but downright tedious at others. i think these guys need to focus a bit more as this kind of chaos isn't really of the asskicking kind

    Pretty decent album. Still, nothing new. Sometimes it is just killer, but also boring.

    Lower Forms - one of the best sludge albums I've ever heard for sure. Killer songs, "A Tale Of Tales" is amazing.

    It's okay I guess. I was just surprised by their facebook-ad.
