Because of their outstanding performance at this year´s Tuska festival, I just have to mention this band´s debut album released a few weeks ago... This occult Rock band from Finnish Kuopio appeared on the scene only last October with a single, and since then they have made huge impact. Praise from reviewers everywhere, even German Spiegel – and I got to admit, they are right. First there is this exotic appeal – haven´t heard anything like this (in a long time). Then this hypnotic atmosphere, created by a 70s-Hammond-Organ-Rock sound, plus Psychedelic, Pop, Folk, Prog, Metal plus a touch of sinister Doom - as if Black Sabbath experimented with Pink Floyd songs and had hired Jefferson Airplane´s Grace Slick to add her voice. And it all sounds fresh, original and vital, very pleasing to the ears and soul. Just like singer Jess with her mysterious-sexy-velvet timbre; even such epic ballad like Sulphur Giants doesn´t seem 13min long, thanks to her skills. As if it was LSD, heart warmer and valerian in CD form, so close your eyes and drift off...
