Wormrot is a Singaporean grindcore band formed in 2007, immediately after the founding members completed their mandatory two years of National Service.
The band was discovered in late December 2009 by Digby Pearson, the owner of record label Earache, in a mixtape posted on the Invisible Oranges blog. After hearing Wormrot's "Born Stupid" on the compilation, Pearson searched out and downloaded Wormrot's full-length debut, Abuse, from file-sharing site MediaFire. Pearson was impressed with the album's quality and the band's "ambition, hard work ethic, and willingness to put (its home country) and Asian grindcore in the global map." Pearson approached the band on their MySpace page, asking if they were interested in joining Earache's roster.
