Started as a twopiece in autumn 2000, the band quickly growed into a collective exploring sound in pride of 'free-music'. By bringing together a bunch of friends, musicians as well as non-musicians, R.O.T. took the shape of a mainly acoustic bigband introducing a lot of different sound sources (guitars, organs, wind instruments, percussion, objects, modified electronics, tapes etc...).

Whereas R.O.T initially was mostly seen as a side project of the now defunct toss (remember their contribution on the first morc-comp?), today R.O.T. has become more of a regular band around core members Laurent Cartuyvels (Toss), Bram Borloo (Moysk, parktldog), Benjamin Franklin (Buffle), Floris Vanhoof (Dirk Freenoise) andChristophe Piette (Ysengrinus)

However, the bands recordings are still mostly jams, sometimes recorded in the middle of the night on an old farm in south-belgium, (like the 'avioth' 12") at other times during a live-show - like the 'des lands' ep.
