ROTTEN SOUND Signs To RELAPSE RECORDS

Relapse Records has announced the signing of Finland's ROTTEN SOUND.

ROTTEN SOUND (Keijo Niinimaa – vocals, Mika Aalto – guitars, Sami Latva – drums, Toni Pihlaga - bass) formed in 1993 and have released a series of full-lengths and EP's since their formation. ROTTEN SOUND's latest album, "Cycles", was released in January of 2008 and debuted at #12 on the Finnish chart.

ROTTEN SOUND is currently writing material for the follow-up to "Cycles" but will first release an EP early next year. Entitled "Napalm", the CD is scheduled for a March release via Relapse. Additional details on this EP will be announced soon.

ROTTEN SOUND's Niinimaa commented: "Relapse Records has been a strong label for grindcore since they started, which is one of the reasons that made us want to re-release our 'Murderworks' album through them in 2005. We will fit to their roster like a fist to an ass. Being along the same line with other labelmates is very important for us because we want to tour all over this planet with bands we like ourselves. The upcoming 'Napalm' EP and the next full-length album will start a new and (even) more aggressive era for ROTTEN SOUND. Doing it together with Relapse Records will make this period more grind than any of our phases before."
