Season of Mist Records set for a February 15th release, ROTTING CHRIST's upcoming album is entitled "AEALO", correlatively with the band's will to delve deeper than ever before into their Greek roots.
Frontman Sakis explains: "AEALO is the transcription of the ancient Greek word ΕΑΛΩ into the Latin alphabet. It means thrashing, catastrophe or destruction and reflects the musical and lyrical content of the album. The concept of 'AEALO' deals with the feelings of a warrior during a battle, therefore the album's title bears this sense of anger, fear and grief."
Those were the times that I was feeling thrilled when I first met Sepultura.As I go mad they made me feel more mad. At the end of 1980’s; two brothers ,in a perfect band, included the Brazilian ethnic musical ınstruments they had reached the top of thrash…But the case moved on and Max Cavalera took his wife ,also the manager of the band, Gloria and left the band… Soon Max created his new band SOULFLY. Cavalera who has succeeded in many Works, started a new album record in Los Angeles. I believe that he won’t make us feel disappointed about the new album and make us go mad again.About the recent Sepultura is, unfortunately still counting at the same point… I don’t like introducing the band with its only member, but the Sepultura ; who had made albums like Roots that changed my life, is only about Max Cavalera..and It’s was something that I really don’t want to say…
The Finnish band Kalmah is going to be with us in 2010… Album titled as ‘’ 12 Gauge’’ ; was recorded in 2009-summer at Tico Tico Studio,Finland and mastered at Cutting Room in Sweden. In the 6th album of Kalmah, there will be 9 new songs and a cover. From the explanation of band members, ’12 Gauge’ is a totally Kalmah album but could be found as new taste. So all we have to do is, sit and wait for it…
Bassist Vortex and keyboardist Mustis who have been playing with the band, explained that they had left the band because of personal reasons. Nevertheless band pronounced that they keep on banging and these breakups won’t change a thing.

Relapse Records is proud to announce 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 charts.
ROTTEN SOUND are currently writing for their follow-up to Cycles but will first see an EP release early next year. The EP, Napalm, is scheduled for a March release via Relapse. Additional details on this release will be announced soon.
ROTTEN SOUND’s Niinimaa commented on the recent signing; “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 label-mates 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.”
