Finnish grindcore powerhouse ROTTEN SOUND have released their explosive new full-length ‘Abuse to Suffer’ today worldwide. The band, hailed as “grindcore with something more to offer…Their execution and talent is on par with the best in the genre and their songwriting shows depth and genuine creativity” (Lambgoat), are streaming ‘Abuse to Suffer’ now at No Clean Singing.
Regarding the new album, ROTTEN SOUND vocalist Keijo Niinima comments:
“To keep it short: ‘Abuse to Suffer’ slays. Enough said.”
The band’s first new record in five years, ‘Abuse to Suffer’ is being hailed as “the return of kings after a whole 5 years spent waiting, and it seems to be a more than fitting return, announcing proudly that Rotten Sound has existed for 23 years, and seems to have no plans to quit any time soon.” (Heavy Blog is Heavy) and is available at the Season of Mist E-Shop.
ROTTEN SOUND are set to return to North American soil this May as part of Maryland Deathfest. The band will perform on Friday, May 27 at the Baltimore Soundstage venue. More information about Maryland Deathfest can be found here.

ROTTEN SOUND have announced a headlining European tour. The tour, which begins on April 22 sees the band trek across 10 different countries before concluding on May 7. Support on the tour comes from ABIGAIL WILLIAMS and CULT LEADER. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.
Established in 1993, ROTTEN SOUND have since firmly placed themselves at the forefront of the grindcore and extreme metal scenes for over 20 years. Hailed as “fusing Napalm Death’s feral intensity with Entombed’s classic ’90s guitar tone, the band unfurls frantic, lockstep blasts spiked with mid-paced death-’n’-roll riffs and thudding, churning doom breaks while vocalist Keijo Niinimaa barks and roars his way to a raw-throated catharsis.” (Revolver Magazine), the band are unrivaled in their approach to scorching speed, crushing heaviness and some of the most ferocious vocals in the genre. ROTTEN SOUND have toured the world over on the backs of 6 well-received full-lengths and multiple splits and EPs in-between. ‘Abuse to Suffer’ sees the rejuvenated band lay down a punishing barrage of hyper-aggressive extremity, setting the bar for brutality to new heights yet again.
