Avaruuskorpraali Paha Hirvi biography
AVARUUSKORPRAALI PAHA HIRVI, formed in late 2000s in Helsinki, are a mysterious 'masked' rock ensemble playing psychedelic music with some ambient texture 'from the outer space' as they say. They made a break all around Finland through plenty of gigs driven with Psychedelic Progressive Rock / Space Rock / Krautrock beats. Two CD-Rs - 'Kindheit' (2007) and 'Yöhoitajan maailmasta' (2009) - were released via Finnish independent label Solmu Records but both of them were really small lots (only about 30 pieces) and they cannot let every fan know enough information about this band yet. On Dec. 31, 2009, AVARUUSKORPRAALI PAHA HIRVI appeared on stage with two famous Finnish psychedelic progressive rock outfits - Klava and Octopus Syng - in Psychotropic Zone Club (Helsinki) for the first time and their hypnotic psychedelia could blow the audience.

Review by Matti
Prog Reviewer

3 stars AVARUUSKORPRAALI PAHA HIRVI (= Space Corporal Bad Moose) is a Finnish quartet who seem to have a joyful, loonie attitude in making Space Rock. On the back cover the young men dance merrily in a backyard at night wearing just shorts. The music is however very well done. This second album was re-released on vinyl in 2012; 200 numbered copies with a colourful painted version of the same front picture, much better than the original you see here. The title means "From the world of a night nurse", but considering the track titles there isn't a clear concept.

The barely 2-minute 'Intro' features wailing synths and a brief spoken narration about, hmm, sexual contacts with space flies & worms. Over-the-top fantasy humour! 'Avaruus, avaruus' (= "Space, space") is 9 minutes of pure, HAWKWIND-like Space Rock with a steady beat. The exciting, electronic soundscape can be associated with the spaciest rock acts of 70's Krautrock too. 'Kauniit silmät' (= "Beautiful eyes") has slower tempo, being no less hypnotic slice of spacey psychedelia. It's slightly reminiscent of Cyclone / Force Majeure -era TANGERINE DREAM.

The B side starts with 'Avaruustissit' (= "Space tits") which is built on a simple, endlessly repeated rhythm pattern. Certainly it has groove and nice sounds, but is perhaps a bit too long and monotonous. The next one (= "Interdeath") features no drums for change. Being close to Ambient / New Age it offers a welcome variety to the album. 'Munakello' (= "Egg timer") has a slow tempo and a melancholic, nocturnal atmosphere. The gentle guitarwork takes completely over synths. Excellent, not far from e.g. ORESUND SPACE COLLECTIVE. And finally comes "The Waking of Sexuality" (Yes, these rather silly titles are obviously from a young male mind!). The drums and the strong beat are again central, but synths and guitars have no difficulties to send the music into outer space.

Naturally it depends on the listener whether this music is hypnotic or boring. Hopefully my review helps you to estimate which reception you'd have. If you enjoy the mentioned bands and genres, you'll probably find a lot to enjoy in this meaty, groovy, ambientish and deeply psychedelic Space Rock.
