Tauti: Laumasielut -7"EP
(Co-release with Nice Lobotomy Records & Raato)
press of #500 on black vinyl.
Second press of #500 on black vinyl.
What you get here is top snotch Finnish hardcore with some epic melodic
punk moments. There are all elements of harsh, fast hardcore in the songs,
but they start the record out with a pulsing ska-groove kind of with a
very slow, rhythmic vocal style. Certainly makes for a really interesting
record that brakes from the fast hardcore norm. Pick this one if you have
Maximumrock'n'roll: From start to finish this thing just fucking
smokes!!! Once again, more amazing hardcore punk from Finland -just what
the fuck are they drinking and where can I get me some?! Hell even the
reggae styled title track "Laumasielut" kicks ass in a CLASH sort of way
before giving way to the raging hook filled thrash. A total resurrection
of the power that the greats like RATTUS, TERVEET KADET, LAMA and KAAOS
where able to produce while adding their own special flavor into the mix
and so the tradition continues on!!! Essential!! Fuck this is so good!!
and Damnation #11: "This ace band have been around since late
80's, and still seem to be obscure outside of Finland. There's 5 amazing
trax on here with the first track, been the title of the EP, is a skanky
tuneful uplifting dittie. The rest of the ride is geared up with some
classic raging fincore like a mix between Appendix, Kaaos, Perestroika,
with an added second guitar which has some amazing structures which at
time's reminds me of an old Swedish band called Puke. More crackin' Finnish
vocals which is the icing on the cake for this style of powerful and well
orchestrated blend of old school fincore and grasping catchyness. Kun
hukatut paivat, on vuosiksi venyneet!"
