Finnish grindcore powerhouse ROTTEN SOUND have announced new US tour dates in the East Coast and Midwest. The tour kicks off on Feb. 17, and sees the band traveling alongside DARKEST HOUR, RINGWORM, and RIVERS OF NIHIL. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.
ROTTEN SOUND are touring in support of their explosive new full-length ‘Abuse to Suffer’. 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, 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. The artwork and track list for ‘Abuse to Suffer’ can be found below:
1. Lazy Asses
3. Fear of Shadows
6. Time for the Fix
7. Slave to the Rats
9. Cannon Fodder
10. Yellow Pain
12. The Clerk
15. Inhumane Treatment
16. Extortion and Blackmail
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 riffsand thudding, churning doom breakswhile 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.
