I saw them play in Cardiff on the 6th and they were note perfect. Mikko's range and power reminds me of Chris Cornell and Myles Kennedy. The music was also slightly heavier, including a chunky version of King Crimson's 21st Century Schizoid Man. The only criticism was that they didn't play for longer. I also met two of the brothers (Mikko and Kie) after the gig and they were very nice chaps indeed! All I can say is do yourselves a favour and at least make an effort to listen to them (plenty of videos on YouTube, including cracking versions of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody and Don't Stop Me Now). If you do then the chances are that you will end up buying all of their music - like I did. I simply can't understand why they are not bigger in the UK than they are at the moment. As Mikko said to me on Saturday - "Spread the word my friend".
Its all so different and utterly compelling at the same time. If you are looking for influences then Floyd come to mind on the impressive 'Word Without' which was recorded in a Finnish monastery. This is the brothers fifth studio album and deserves to get them the attention of a large audience in the UK.
Now, just a quick note on how this band's music is classified. Everywhere I look, I see them classed as a 'Prog' band or perhaps 'Prog Rock'. These terms just leave me cold to be honest, and I don't actually think they do much to describe the music. If any classification is needed, just 'Rock band' will do for me. Also, I don't see the need to compare their music to other artists. Sure, influences are there to hear in all of the tunes but this applies pretty much to every rock band that has ever existed. Anyway, there are clearly so many different influences that name-checking any specific acts won't help a potential new listener in my view.
The real strength of this album for me is the diversity of sound and feel across the different songs (I note that for other reviewers this is very much a negative). The aforementioned 'Insomniac' is very much a ballsy rock tune from start to end, whilst lead single 'Flowers and Rust' has a more dramatic 'soaring' feel and ebbs and flows a bit more. 'Coming Home' starts out with the sound of driving drums that eventually lead to a nice contrast between broody verses with deep vocals and an energetic chorus.Read more ›
