Fast and chaotic thrashy hardcore punk from Tampere, Finland.
#151 : "Singing in Finnish makes you sound like you really mean it, you know? It's
all those long, drawn out 'aaaaaaahhhhhhhhs' at the end of every word. What
a classically punk sounding syllable that has turned out to be! To my mind
KYKLOOPPIEN SUKUPUUTTO is one of the best bands to emerge out of Finland in
the past couple of years. They play dark, angry hardcore that draws most
aggressively from the hardcore tradition of their country-mates of
yesteryear, but that should appeal to any fan of raw, stripped down hardcore
punk. The production is right-on too, but most importantly the songs
actually stand out as being well written and well executed. A keeper!"
Slug & Lettuce #85: "Second EP from these Finns, and more of the same; five tracks this time, slightly more straight ahead, but that still places them pretty far in the stratosphere above generic punk. The members are all older, 30 or so according to the label, and it shows in the writing; busy and chaotic, but never scattered, and the guitars are simply masterful, cutting through the mix always on the verge of chaos, but still somehow in control. Gatefold EP cover with stellar artwork once again. I assume that there will be more from this band in the future. (-Robert)"
Profane Existence distro list: "Five more aural assault from this thrash band made up of ex members of various legendary Finnish Punk bands, Tampere SS, Kirous and Totuus, etc. Nice packaging, with a unique cover design and includes English explainations of all the songs. This is a total ripper!"
Plastic Bomb # 53: "Voll auf die Zwölf Finnland HC Punk so wie er sein muss: Eine konsequente Fortführung damaliger Propaganda Releases: Brutal, verzerrt und 100 Prozent Underground. Dazu unaussprechliche Songtexte im fetten Pappcover (Björn) "
