Harhakuvat Kaivannot Laumasielut Johtajat ja uhrit Luckily this year has brought its fair share of new bands that will easily sustain my listening for months to come, but there was one band in particular that really stood out and caught my interest. This is my first taste of Unkind, and I felt it was best to take my time Tämä Päivä - Unkind - Harhakuvat it. Rather than spilling my initial thoughts and reactions all over the place, I decided to let this album sink in, because in all honesty, Harhakuvat is an album that needs to be digested over time.
With most other bands that fit the same mold as Unkind, tracks are usually Preachin The Blues - Various - Blues Volume 2 bursts of anger and frustration, coupled with distortion and feedback. The faster and more angry the song is, the better. This is achieved by them layering atmosphere on top of atmosphere as each individual track continues the unrelenting nature of the one that preceded Out In The Street - Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band* - New York, March 28, 2016. And Unkind are no strangers to the use of feedback in their songs, as it turns out to be one of the albums main elements.
The feedback not only contributes to the darker tone, but it allows the tracks to be Tämä Päivä - Unkind - Harhakuvat together by sort of bridging the two with music, rather than just blasting into the next track. Soon enough the instruments come in and continue the slow build up to the inevitable crust-ridden, high-energy whirlwind of metal that is to come, and when it does, this album kicks into gear.
The song escalates into a catchy and crunchy chorus and at around the midway point an audio clip of a man discussing the topic of nazis, those of the Jewish faith, and Isrealites, all of which is in a manner that is well suiting to the dismal atmosphere and sound being performed closes the track.
The track itself ends with about two minutes of guitar chords being rung out until they eventually fade, which closes the album out nicely. Musically, the album is heavy with the slightest bit of a muffled effect to add to the already bleak tone. The album itself was recorded and mixed by Kari Nieminen at Noisecamp Studios in Turku, Finland and thanks to him, not one instrument was left behind.
The guitars are high pitched and raw as they clash against one another unleashing plenty of catchy hooks and harmonies. The bass which often times is underproduced in final mixes, is actually very loud and pulses along with the music nicely. The drums are aggressive and similar to that of the guitars, acting as a stark contrast the less-bass-driven sounds of the album. Unkind have made quite a strong statement with Harhakuvat. While perhaps not as widely known as fellow bands in the same scene, they have taken The Connection - Travis - Coming Around unique stab at this style of music and the outcome is a breath of fresh air in what can easily become a stale and stagnant sound.
