3 stars Demonnights is an album that moves the outstanding Finnforest in a decidedly more jazz rock direction and the results are very good.

The Tegelman brothers are joined by several guest musicians and the playing is absolutely top notch. But it is the completely jamming ferocity of the guitars and percussion that makes this band such a treat, although less so here as the sax and keys move much more to the fore.

In "Ann" we are served up a very tasty sax solo which continues into the next (title) track. Sax lovers will need to hear this album as Juhani Altonen really makes his presence felt throughout. The closing track "Pablo" is a real standout and the heavenly guitar work here gets the closest to what we heard on their previous album.

All in all Demonnights is not the consistent masterpiece like the earlier Finnforest work in my opinion but it will certainly please jazz lovers. It is another piece of the legacy of a tragically underappreciated band from Finland whom I hope will eventually be discovered by more people. I recommend their earlier work to start with but if you like what you hear there do check this one out as well. Sadly, to my knowledge, this would be the last Finnforest album.

3.5 stars overall, 4 star territory for straight jazz rock lovers.

Finnforest | 3/5 |
