ROTTEN SOUND announce “Grind Over Europe II” Tour, extend Asian tour

Finnish grindcore powerhouse ROTTEN SOUND have announced a new European tour. The “Grind over Europe II” tour sees ROTTEN SOUND co-headlining with EXHUMED and begins on April 12. This tour follows ROTTEN SOUND’s previously announced Japanese tour, which has been expanded to include dates across five South East Asian countries. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below:



ROTTEN SOUND are touring in support of their newest full-length, ‘Abuse to Suffer’. The band’s first new record in five years, ‘Abuse to Suffer’ was 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 anytime soon.” (Heavy Blog is Heavy) and is available at the Season of Mist E-Shop.

ROTTEN SOUND previously released an explosive live video for the track “Trashmonger”. The video, captured live during the band’s most recent tour is streaming and available for sharing here.

ROTTEN SOUND, hailed as “grindcore with something more to offer…Their execution and talent are on par with the best in the genre and their songwriting shows depth and genuine creativity” (Lambgoat), are streaming ‘Abuse to Suffer’ now at the band’s official Bandcamp page.

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 riffs and thudding, churning doom breaks while 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.


ROTTEN SOUND are available for interviews upon request. To speak with the band please contact Enrique Sagarnaga via email or telephone (215-625-8400). ROTTEN SOUND news and updates will be made available through the Season of Mist website, the ROTTEN SOUND Facebook page.
