Finnish grindcore veterans Rotten Sound steamroll the senses on the squad’s latest 16-track endeavor CURSED. Supplying an array of blistering heaviness scraped from the bottom of the bleak and foreboding spot on the metallic continuum, Rotten Sound vehemently follows the densely derived velocity-driven paradigm with little deviation, wavering between chaotic cacophony (“Addict”) and viscous viciousness (“Hollow”) as a solid grind offering should. Capitalizing on this back to basics approach with a chest-caving bass tone (“Declare”) and a rapid-fire percussive presence (“Doomed”), the brutal assault plotted by this quartet is familiar to those in the know, maintaining the savage brevity and destructive dissonance to assist the overall goal to obliterate everything in its path.
