Pakeni

Pakeni . Detergent Bubble Bath Formed in '92, this trio from Naantali were one of the many Finnish bands to have followed Xysma's footsteps from Carcass-like deathgrind to out'n'out grooviness, in this case incorporating hard rocking riffs, wah-wah guitar, and melodic atmospherics among other things, not to mention a sense of humour. The band called their music "pink metal" at some point, and the name Pakeni is a shoddy Finnish pun on Carcass - the word 'carcass' sounds like the past tense form of the Finnish verb 'to escape', and 'pakeni' is a synonym for that... never mind. Guitarist/vocalist Anton Kupias joined Disgrace after their "Superhuman Dome" album.

Papa Rousin'

Papa Rousin . The Gravedigger's Blues Good power/speed metal with hooks from Raahe. Well played and good prodcution. The vocals are the weakest link here but still notably better than with some more known acts operating in the same playgorund. Clear and sometimes lamenting.

Kari Nylander of Zen Cafe fame played in the band at some point but he's not listed in the line-up on this one and only record.

Peer Günt

Peer Gunt . Animal Lover Peer Gunt . Bad Boys Are Here Originally formed back in '76 but major success didn't come until '84 when the band won the Finnish Rock Championship competition. This hard rocking boogie-based power trio are known as Kouvola's Motörhead. Peer Günt haven't had a single line-up change in over 20 years and the band is still alive and kicking. Twist Twist Erkinharju has also played in Leningrad Cowboys.

Protected Illusion

Protected Illusion . Swimming In The Moonlight Protected Illusion . Sandman's Store Ultra-speed thrash merchants from the capital area who remained clinically unsigned till the bitter end. Apart from the 7" EP's they released a series of frantic demo tapes and one "cassette album" entitled "Festering Fairytales" ('90). Ex-Dirty Damage vocalist Rytkönen became an important fixture for the band (they had a different vocalist on their first tape), with his fuck-shit-up style complementing the band's Sadus/ Assassin-style high velocity efforts. Drummer Erkki Virta has also made three punk albums with L.A.M.F. and is currently involved in Nevergreen with two other former members of Protected Illusion.
