Watch out! Rotten Sound

Rotten Sound, Abigail, Speedwolf, Occultist, No Tommorrow 

When: Mon., May 27, 8:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $12

If the songs of Rotten Sound lasted any longer than the typical minute or two, would anyone be able to withstand them? Indeed, for the last two decades, the Finnish crew has served as a brutal bellwether of grindcore, with drums that roll in like great uninterrupted waves of fuselage and urgent, incensed vocals that take aim from all sides. Their latest, the fitful six-song EP Species at War, actually slows for "The Game," a 52-second, mid-tempo stagger that, by way of its steady development, still feels like assault. They're joined by an A-list support cast that includes Japan's blackened wizards Abigail, Richmond's lithe and ripping Occultist, breathless and barking Denver rippers Speedwolf and Raleigh's No Tomorrow.—Grayson Currin
