Upcoming release: "Suffer to abuse"

Release date: Fri, Apr 13 2018, US Fri, Apr 13 2018

ROTTEN SOUND are unleashing the first crushing track taken from their forthcoming new EP, 'Suffer to Abuse' - not to be confused with the band's previous album 'Abuse to Suffer'. The EP will hit stores on April 13th, 2018 in Europe and May 18th, 2018 in the US.

The Finnish grindcore stalwards are now streaming "Harvester of Boredom" via via the official Season of Mist YouTube channel here.

Vocalist Keijo Niinimaa comments: "Our new track 'Harvester of Boredom' is the first song created for this release: Sami's riffs and the lyrics are about a drug related harvesting in not-so-good conditions. This has nothing to do with Metallica - except for the nodding tribute in the title - just in case someone mistakenly thought that we wanted to comment on their efforts."

ROTTEN SOUND are furthermore releasing the artwork of 'Suffer to Abuse', which has been created by Thomas Boutet at Mush Design and can be viewed together with the album details 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 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 catalogue 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!
