Akupunktio play traditional Finnish hardcore with some current influences thrown in. The songs are driving, though never full-on speedy or thrashy. The rhythm section definitely hammers away, but there are a lot of tempo changes in the songs to keep it from being one long blur. “Koira” is the standout track of the four. The guitar dominates and sets the mood with ringing notes over a din of distortion and a somewhat pummeling mid tempo.
