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...

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.

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...
