Label: Season Of Mist – SOM336LP
Format: LP, black vinyl, gatefold
Released: 25 March 2016
Style: Death Metal/Grindcore
Second pressing on black vinyl. 200 copies worldwide. 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.
Finland’s ROTTEN SOUND are one of the titans of modern grind. ‘Abuse to Suffer’, their first album in five years, sees the rejuvenated band lay down a punishing barrage of hyper-aggressive extremity. The new album is nothing short of a 16-track tour-de-force of prime ROTTEN SOUND; scorching speed, crushing heaviness and some of the most ferocious vocals the genre has ever seen. As ‘Abuse to Suffer’ so forcefully and immediately illustrates, ROTTEN SOUND are at the very forefront of grindcore. Recommended if you like Napalm Death, Nasum, Insect Warfare, Phobia, Entombed.
