In a Tampere dungeon lurks the best rock music of our time. And now it has its own thread. Let us celebrate two most excellent bands, and their supreme combination - dare you risk your mind in the Syntheosis?
(it's on Spotify as well)

A friend of mine was obsessed with the ‘zuzu for a while a couple of years ago. I have ‘Valonielu’ but not listened to it for ages.
I do quite like Kairon; IRSE! however.

Kairon are amazing as well, yes :) but they're not part of this collective I think. Happy to broaden this to all (good) Finnish psych-metal though...

Kairon Irse share a guitarist with OP I believe

I'm bumping this because this is my album of the year, and because I want to talk about Marko Neuman
So this^ is probably my SONG of the year, a furious synthesis of vocal styles and coruscating guitars. Imagine my surprise to learn that Marko Neuman is responsible for EVERY vocal on the track! Look, here's its original live incarnation from Roadburn, who commissioned the piece (starts about 9/10 minutes into the video):
It's all one guy! A quite unbelievable performance!
Not a surprise when you hear him talk about his favourite records though:
I met this girl at a bar and we ended up in my apartment. This was also back in the late 90s. It was late at night and we were sitting in the living room on the couch and I decided to put some music on. I turned off all the lights and put The Litanies of Satan in the player and turned the volume as loud as possible. After a while the girl started to freak out because of the vocals on the record and asked if I could change the music. I suggested that we should listen to the whole album and she started freaking out more and left. At that moment I realised that through art I want to have a similar impact on people like Litanies of Satan had on that girl.

i don't understand guys who bring girls they don't like back to their apartment, shit man it's ok to go home alone!

he liked her until she failed the Diamanda Test tbf
― imago, Sunday, 14 April 2019 14:23 (seven months ago) link
if you take a girl you've just met home from a bar and your idea of a good time is listening to the litanies of satan with her you don't really like her

if you listen to his performance on Wake Up The Possessor it's hard to argue he hasn't some of Galas' spirit, though...
― imago, Sunday, 14 April 2019 14:43 (seven months ago) link
that's cool, i'm still not going out with him

Been listening to DBR, especially Ritual IX. Enneargy has to be one of the best doom songs of all time, right? It's next-level. Such depth and lightness amongst the heft. Will be ploughing through the rest of the Dark Trilogy soon...great sunshine music

Yeah, that quote makes him sound like a massive dick

But I'll still pick up this album

Fortunately the other quote in the interview makes him sound way cooler:
I remember listening to this album on Sunday nights back in late 90s. Lying in my bed having a cigarette in one hand and a knife in the other hand. Those were beautiful moments.
"Wake Up The Possessor" is definitely the standout on the album so far.

DBR are SO satisfying, they're like a nine-course meal. Enneathan hits similar pleasure centres as GY!BE used to, except this is much better, at least to me now. The first part is just the most amazing rangy monster of a song, building to quite incredible intensity and then pushing on, further and further, as the guitarist gradually sets fire to the world.
I'm now listening to Entheomorphosis and finding it equally substantial. Most other modern doom can't hold a candle to this, for me. This is deeper, wilder and crazier, and it knows how to mix light and space with the heavy darkness in order to accentuate it

Vesperith! A female solo artist has been added to the Wastement circle! And it's good!
Also, there's an OP live album now! I'm listening to VKH! It kicks ass!
― imago, Friday, 4 October 2019 09:24 (two months ago) link
Her 2015 EP, Esoteros, is stunning. I have high hopes for her upcoming album.
― pomenitul, Friday, 4 October 2019 09:25 (two months ago) link
I see you added it to RYM the other week and are hitherto the sole voter! Will have to check it out...
― imago, Friday, 4 October 2019 09:32 (two months ago) link
Listening to the Vesperith now! Feels like it's a slow burner. Not a bad thing
― imago, Sunday, 24 November 2019 12:13 (two weeks ago) link
It's more atmo than BM, which suits me just fine. I'm all for selenic Lisa Gerrard-esque Finns.
― pomenitul, Sunday, 24 November 2019 12:30 (two weeks ago) link
the preview track appears to have been a fake-out yes. but the atmospheres are good!
― imago, Sunday, 24 November 2019 12:30 (two weeks ago) link
actually this album is throwing me slightly - every track is very distinct! fourth track is absolutely where it's at, wow
― imago, Sunday, 24 November 2019 12:38 (two weeks ago) link
& in fact the whole second half of this appears to be magnificent
― imago, Sunday, 24 November 2019 12:46 (two weeks ago) link
I'm actually into this. This is quite good

It's a little bloated though. Multishiva EP has a lot of the same vibes but is way leaner and more ferocious
