ABNORMI: Normien Vastainen: CD

May 27, 2009

This punk outfit from Finland reminded me of two bands right off the top of my head: Disorder and Chaos UK. It's something about the din of noise they produce which seems to be almost out of control but calculated that way. I don’t know if they follow the same values of "Noise, not music," but I would agree that some of those bands’ music might have crossed their path by virtue of some degree of separation, while taking from many early Finnish bands. Guitars are buzz-saw, the bass thuds along to the beat, while the drums bash at a spastic rate, and the vocals are droning and strained. I wouldn’t want to listen to this after a night of binge drinking.
