Rotten Sound are now announcing a brand new live stream, which will happen on Saturday July 25th at @21:00 CEST. Tickets for the stream event can be purchased HERE. More info on the event can be found on the official Facebook event.
The band states this about the whole Corona virus situation and their upcoming live stream:
“COVID-19-situation in Finland allows us to play a show in front of a 50% capacity of live audience. WsArena also arranged a live stream for the show, which everyone of you can watch from home. It does cost a bit, just like it does to hire professionals to do the stream and for us to travel and play the show. ”
Rotten Sound have firmly established themselves as one of the leading acts of the grind-core 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 new EP ”Suffer to Abuse”, which is not to be confused with their latest full-length album, ”Abuse to Suffer” (2016), embodies those aforementioned virtues to the point. The EP delivers seven 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 catalog of seven highly acclaimed studio albums, now 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 ”Suffer to Abuse”, Rotten Sound are gearing up their musical juggernaut just in time before crushing stages all over Asia and Europe this spring. Hold on tight and enjoy the bliss of this heavily whirling grind-tornado!
