After 'Marshland', the darkest blues album ever released in Finland, Westerlund is trying to find some light with this 2017 solo effort. By deploying means ranging from the choral exploration of 'So Messed Up' to the obsessedly monotonic boogie of 'Run No More', completed with two songs from Circle's repertoire, he manages to come up with a captivating, sorcerous journey for an album. Westerlund's roots may be deep in folk music, but over the years, playing with such bands as Circle, Pharaoh Overlord and Plain Ride, he has developed a highly personalized take on it by questioning the conventions of any given genre. Despite his uncompromising and austere vision on music, there remains an undertone of uncertainty and vulnerability in his voice - perhaps it is precisely this ambivalence that makes his work so accessible and strikingly effective.

HUSHÅLLEN - UUSI MUOTO (BLACK)

HUSHÅLLEN - UUSI MUOTO (BLACK)

Hushållen sound like a band of imaginary friends. The rugged punk of the collective, driven by the buzz and burr of the fantastically fuzzy bass, is as much akin to outlaw country as it is to all individualistic anti-establishment aesthetics. Hushållen is ... read more »

 

X_X - X STICKY FINGERS X

X_X - X STICKY FINGERS X

Life's greatest pleasures are often its most fleeting. Witness, for example, the ephemeral run of X_X, a turbulent quartet that tore through Cleveland like a Dadaist cyclone for six months in 1978. Preceding his imminent relocation to NYC, burly, blond brawler John D. ... read more »

PLAIN RIDE - SKELETON KITES

On their fifth album 'Skeleton Rites', Finnish band PLAIN RIDE move away from the Americana-tinged folk rock of their previous releases in favour of darker and deeper tones. The seven lengthy songs flow and grow insidiously by subtle changes in the undercurrent, with the ... read more »

 

HEBOSAGIL - LAHTO

HEBOSAGIL - LAHTO

The Maya didn't know anything, whereas Hebosagil knows when the hour comes, when its time for Lahto, and their manner of exiting is big, loud, penetrating, and hard to the core. From the fallout, the radiometers are detecting remnant radiation from Slayer and Melvins, while ... read more »

 

STEEL MAMMOTH - RADIATION FUNERAL

STEEL MAMMOTH - RADIATION FUNERAL

The fourth album by these NWOFHM-veterans is a relentless punkmetal attack. Half an hour filled with unglued screaming, harrowing guitars, violent drumfire and apocalyptic bass pollution. Radiation Funeral ain't no joke, it plunges into the black flames with an empty stare. ... read more »

MARIA JA MARSIALAISET - PYSY HEREILLÄ

Maria Ja Marsialaiset equals hard rock and raw groove. There are echoes of '70s rock'n'roll, Finnish boogie rock from that same era, wailing proto-heavy vocal heroes, the deep voices of Catherine Ribeiro and Muska Babitzin, the electric charge of Dead End 5, and the ... read more »
