Sunday Old School: Rotten Sound

Throughout the history of the Sunday Old School series, our grindcore coverage has focused primarily on the scenes in the United Kingdom, save for looking at a few American bands such Brutal Truth and Anal Cunt. The genre spread worldwide, particularly across Europe and as usual, once the Scandinavians got hold of a new brand of metal, they made significant contributions of their own, one of which we'll be looking at today, who go by the name of Rotten Sound.

Rotten Sound were formed in 1993 in the city of Vaasa, located very close to the border of Sweden, by guitarist Mika Aalto. He was soon joined by vocalist Keijo Niinimaa, bass player Masa Kovero and drummer Ville Väisänen, who would leave the band following their first release, the single, "Sick Bastard" in 1994. He was replaced by Kai Hahto who took part in the recording of the subsequent EPs, "Psychotic Veterinarian" and "Loosin' Face," as well as split releases with Dischord and Control Mechanism. Finally in 1997, the band were able to release their first full length album, "Under Pressure" through Spanish record label, Repulse Records. More...

Lascar Reveals "Absence" Details

Lascar's "Absence" is coming December 4th, 2016 - check out the artwork and track listing below. The following press release was also issued about the album:

"Beauty meets melancholy, where human perception absorbs the apparently frail forms of life that makes the earth pulse of a constantly transforming essence. Musically speaking Lascar makes reference to the doomish melancholic vision of bands like Agalloch and the negative moods recalling post-black metal shadings. Fast cathartic parts are alternated to slowdowns and meditative acoustic moments."
