Sisare biography
Founded in Turku, Finland in 2008

SISARE are a Finnish experimental progressive rock/metal quartet from Finland, originally formed in 2008 as a progressive death metal group releasing a demo and an EP. After splitting in 2010, they returned with a new drummer and a more progressive rock direction which includes elements of post-rock, jazz and folk. Their debut ''Nature's Despair'' was released in 2013 as a free download. Severi PEURA (vocals, guitar), Timo LEHTONEN (guitar) and Hermanni PILTTI (bass) have seen the two different eras of the band, while Rauli ELENIUS (drums) replaced Mark LAAKSO in 2010, who was part of the first incarnation along with Ville M. (vocals).

SISARE touch on the lighter side of post-metal mixing modern sounds in the vein of KARNIVOOL and TOOL with the more melancholic/atmospheric side of Scandinavian legacy (e.g. OPETH).

Leaving The Land
Sisare Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Windhawk

4 stars Finnish band SISARE can trace their history back to 2008, and in the first phase of their existence they explored the landscapes of metal, and then towards the more extreme parts of that universe at that. Following a band reboot in 2010 they opted to focus more on a progressive rock oriented sound, which they have explored on two studio albums so far. "Leaving the Land" is the most recent of these, and was released through Finnish label V. R. Label in the spring of 2018.

Sisare is one of those bands that are ever so slightly unconventional, and remains compelling and accessible despite rather than because of it. Post-rock, psychedelic rock and heavy prog, combined with and at least to some extent explored within an indie/alternative rock context is what we are treated to here, and the sum of all the parts here makes me suspect that quite a few fans of Norwegian solo artists Bjorn Riis might appreciate what this band is all about, and perhaps also some of the fans of his main band Airbag. A certain affection for melancholic moods will be required though.

Sisare Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Matti

3 stars SISARE is a new band from Turku, Finland. The songwriter and vocalist Severi Peura is one of the two playing guitar, and keyboards are totally absent. This debut album with great drawn cover contains eight songs between three and 8+ minutes in length, all sung in English.

'The Brew' features the only guest performance, Heidi Lahtinen on violin - which is actually the first thing to be heard. It brings a folk flavour into the melancholic and classic rock spirited song. 'Salvation?' comes occasionally closer to Metal, especially on drums and guitars, but Peura's vocals luckily don't get aggressive. His clean rock baritone is loaded with slightly depressed emotion and is technically very capable; the very long notes on 'Isolation' are sung without any uncertainty. The prog aspect is not very central, meaning that a rock listener can enjoy SISARE's music simply as powerful and melancholic rock without a necessary prog orientation. The compositions don't have notable shifts into completely different sections, nor do they have significant instrumental parts.

Perhaps the best comparisons (Post Metal is not a familiar subgenre to me) come from the more intelligent area of Heavy / Metal music, bands such as ANATHEMA, OPETH and STEVEN WILSON's several involvements. Nevertheless the songs are mostly relatively atmospheric, and the guitars have a good balance between heaviness and delicacy. it's hard to spot faults in this well-done album, which is also produced and mixed by Severi Peura himself, but it's also difficult to pick favourite songs (with the exception of the opener featuring the violin) as the entire album is more or less soaked in the same dark melancholia. Maybe because of that feeling I give "only" three stars in this prog environment.

Review by jackdaw

4 stars On first couple of listens an interesting album! Lush, layered guitar sounds permeate this collection with wonderful melodic passages and the recording standard is high and uplifting. The opening track lulls you gently before you encounter Salvation! an incredible track with an epic and powerful guitar sound and the best on the album. More variable work on The Dust and Where Do Whales Breed? with nice changes of pace to keep you interested. I think this band would be great to see live but not sure I will make it to Finland. The more I listen the more I like it. Will listen a few more times and update again!
Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
