Kenziner

Kenziner . Timescape Kenziner . The Prophecies Epic neo-classical metal group led by guitar virtuoso Jarno Keskinen from Riihimäki. On the debut album Mr Keskinen handled all the instruments except drums by himself but on the second album he was joined by another Finn (Mikko Harkin, keyboards, later also in Sonata Arctica) and two Americans (Stephen Fredricks, vocals & Brian Harris, drums). Both albums are produced by David T. Chastain.

After the second album things got dissonant between Jarno Keskinen and the record company which led to Keskinen's departure from the group. The record company is planning to find a replacement but any fool can see they are flogging a dead horse.

Kirka

Kirka . Born to be Wild Kirka . The Spell Kiril "Kirka" Babitzin has released dozens of records since '67 and even though most of his recordings are more likely to be to your mother's liking, he certainly deserves a mention here. First of all Kirka has a great voice for hard rock and his first experiment with this type of music was Kimmo Kuusniemi's post-Sarcofagus project Moottorilinnut in '82 where he sang two songs. A couple of years later Kirka released two more than decent hard rock albums before returning to softer music. In addition to his musical efforts he helped Tarot get a record deal back in '86. In '84 Kirka also represented Finland in the Eurovision Song Contest reaching the 9th position - the winners were Sweden's pride the Herreys.
