VÄISTÄ!: Mukaudu: LP

Slick modern HC from Finland that would be right at home with the Bridge9/Lockin’ Out crowd. Lyrics are in Finnish so I don’t really know what they’re saying besides the descriptions on the one-sheet (“‘Humalistonkatu’—that is of course a street name in Turku!”) but there is a really nice zine included with the record with lyrics and pictures of the band. The band isn’t treading any new ground but the riffs are good, the vocals are convincing, and the song structures are interesting. Fans of Righteous Jams, Folsom, guitar solos, and breakdowns should track this one down. –Ian Wise (Blast Of Silence, [email protected])
