Kuolemanlaakso: Evil, ugly and super-heavy
When I called this act a new Finnish super-group and expressed my appreciation in my review, I was certainly not alone with my opinion. Kuolemanlaakso have left quite an impression in the scene with their debut album "Uljas uusi maailma” (”Brave New World”). Founder and mastermind Markus Laakso (guitar & keyboards) tells us all about the band, the mystical quality of Finnish nature – and who´s the best cook in the line-up.

Kuolemanlaakso: Songs of Water and Fire
Within less than a year and a half, Kuolemanlaakso have managed to release two excellent albums plus an equally recommendable EP. A couple of weeks after the street date of the latest longplayer, Tulijoutsen (read our review here ), the band presented its new material live for the first time at On The Rocks in Helsinki. Before the soundcheck, we caught up with guitarist/main songwriter Markus Laakso and vocalist Mikko Kotamäki. >> more/mehr

Kypck: The Russians are coming!
KYPCK are rightfully the most anticipated newcomers to the Finnish heavy scene in 2008. They fell on us like snow in June, fast and unexpected. Half a year ago nobody had any idea, and suddenly they are signed to a major label, on Inferno´s front cover, give tons of interviews and there´s high traffic on the band´s forum. The concept doom-metallers themselves have no idea what´s really going on, but they are determined to fulfil all their dreams and continue to go only forward, with strong Russian stubbornness. Although the ´Russian topic´ is still sensitive in Finland, even with years passed, it´s perhaps up to bands like KYPCK to finally smoothen the hard feelings, at least for the new generation. Beautiful tunes, deep lyrics, charming accents and a strong stage presence make this band very attractive, even if most foreign listeners won´t immediately pick up the complexity of a Russian soul. >> more/mehr

Kypck: From Oxford to Russian Fight Clubs
There is definitely no other band like this – Finns who celebrate Russian language and culture in their music. Kypck founded something unique back in 2007. Now they are back with their second release “Nizhe” even better then before. After their short tour through Russia we met singer E.Seppänen at Ilves Bar before their Show at Helsinki’s Tavastia Club. He told us about the years he has been living in Russia and why the Russian way of life fascinates him so much. >> more/mehr
