4 stars This first record of Ikihevonen (The Eternal Horse) delivers some nice raw artistic psychedelic sound of the underground from the streets of Helsinki. The basis of the music refers to trashy improvisational acid rock, which is expanded naturally with the musical personalities of the players. Heavy riffs, calm trippy ambiences, brutal hypnotic rock and wild experimentations unite as a solid musical entity. Quality of the recording is fine, and playing is spontaneous and mad, these fellows have certainly had possibility to create freely what they feel right. The basic rock-trio sound is expanded in studio with some keyboards and few vocal parts, and in my opinion the capacity of free musical innovation has been exploited pleasantly. When comparing to the live sound of the band, the sonar tapestry is slightly more sophisticated, maybe due the situation of being locked to a recording studio with possibilities for free expression process instead of a local underground gig venue. I would recommend this fluidly flowing raw record for anybody interested of sincere and avant-gardist psychedelic art rock.
