I have been a Rotten Sound fanboy for years. They are one of my all-time favorite bands for one simple reason: they never let you down. They don’t put out a few albums and then decide to change their sound. They don’t put out a bunch of bullshit releases. They take their time and put out hearty, crusty albums that cannot be surpassed. So is the case with their latest offering, the ever-pivotal Species At War.
Species At War doesn’t pick up where Curses left off, oh no. This fresh slate kicks in with its very own vicious attack on your senses. With six tracks in just over eight minutes, this is one of those albums that can be looped for days and never get old. Species At War takes Rotten Sound’s signature crustgrind tone and throws it for a loop. If you’re trying to decide what you’re going to be listening to for the next eight months, it has to be Rotten Sound’s new beast, Species At War.
Something that also needs to be brought to the light is the fact that Rotten Sound can make a fifty-two second track last forever. Not in a negative way, but as in “it’s so fucking good, I can’t believe it was less than a minute long!” Seriously, these tracks grab you by the gonads and force-fuck your eardrums. Get a dose of war and do it now. None more crusty.
