Grindcore is a law unto itself. The name of the genre was coined by former Napalm Death drummer Mick Harris and has since gone on to include some of the best names in extreme music such as Carcass, Bolt Thrower and Brutal Truth, though the first two have always been a matter of debate. While North America boasted such names as Terrorizer, Discordance Axis and the aforementioned Brutal Truth and the genre was arguably started in Britain, it's in Europe where we can find some of the absolute best grindcore has to offer, with one of the very best coming from Vaasa, Finland. They're called, Rotten Sound.

For twenty six years, Rotten Sound has put out high quality releases and become one of the most beloved names in all of grindcore. At their recent show in London, I caught up with frontman Keijo Niinimaa to discuss what the band has in store for the future, the twentieth anniversary of their sophomore album, "Drain" and his time spent fronting Nasum on their farewell tour. You can watch it in full below.
