Rotten Sound was formed on 1993 and has released 13 recordings so far, including four full-length albums, one DVD and numerous smaller releases. Their last effort, "Exit" (featuring Kai Hahto on drums), received many rave reviews around the world and made it to Finnish charts for three weeks after it was released.
The previous full-length, "Murderworks", was originally released in 2002 through Century Media Records (in Europe) and is now being reissued by Relapse Records. Rotten Sound has a great deal of touring experience, including numerous tours in Europe, two U.S. tours and many festivals on both continents.
