During this run, Rotten Sound will unleashing the “Apocalypse”, their brand new album containing eighteen short sharp chops that hit home perfectly in these deeply troubled times. In celebration of the end of the world, Rotten Sound recently shared a new track & video called “Nothingness” – watch it below.
Rotten Sound have firmly established themselves as one of the leading acts of the grindcore scene. Expertly wielding the fierce brutality and massive aggression of their genre, the Finns add intelligent songwriting, effective arrangements, and musical proficiency as well as subtle death metal elements to their sound.
Their forthcoming album “Apocalypse” embodies those aforementioned virtues to the point. The full length delivers eighteen short sharp chops that hit home perfectly.
Rotten Sound was conceived in the city of Vaasa, Finland by guitarist Mika Aalto in 1993, who was soon joined by vocalist and word-smith Keijo Niinimaa. The duo still remains in place, while the original members in all other positions have been replaced several times until today.
The Finns can field an impressive catalogue of now eight highly acclaimed studio albums, eight EPs, three split singles, a single, and a live DVD. Furthermore, Rotten Sound have already conquered the stages of all major metal and hardcore oriented festivals and also toured in regular intervals alongside such renowned acts as Malevolent Creation, Phobia, Disfear, Carcass, Municipal Waste, Exhumed, Napalm Death, and Pig Destroyer – among many others.
With “Apocalypse”, Rotten Sound are gearing up their musical juggernaut just in time before crushing stages all over Asia and Europe this spring.
