Altough there might be some psyche / space rock elements on our music our roots stand on symphonic prog.

Besides our work with album oriented music Nurkostam has also composed soundtracks for Finnish short movies. Please check the youtube links below. The director of the films is our friend Tapani Hiedanniemi.

Nurkostam - a promising Finnish rock band (Review for "XIII")

Nurkostam

NURKOSTAM are a Finnish rock project around three founders Toni NURMI, Tero KOSKI, and Janne TAMMINEN, mainly influenced by Genesis' theatricality, King Crimson's experimental literature, Pink Floyd's space rock, and Yes' careful complexity, and Wigwam the Finnish Rock Giant.  And as you hope, they can invite some eclecticism and break it into fragments in their soundscape.

XIII (2006) - NURKOSTAM

Listened to their album "XIII" and been beaten soundly by the first track "Iscream", sparkling in complex and lyrical sounds that can remind us something close to the atmosphere around King Crimson. Trembling heavy dark shower of sound bullets shot via three rock launchers is very tremendous for proggers. Two songs following the first are very poppy and cannot ring my bells, though. The fourth "Between", a keyboard-solo-based tune can notify us that they might have tried to follow Genesis Theatre ... as if their voices and whispers should be possessed by Ghost of Gabriel. Very mellow and dramatic progression, we can be immersed into. Next "Madness", the same keyboard flavour added, is very serious and critical on the contrary. Tastes bitter and dangerous, no matter what happened around the three gangsters. The last "archie" is very sticky and slimy psychedelia, where they all exerted powers of perverse persuasion ... not be seen, not be heard anywhere, so impressive.

In conclusion, for me "XIII" is a good album indeed, but sadly not so united as a progressive one. There are some extreme sound-shines in them, which can let me do hope they'll shoot more magnificent drama ... certainly!

Unfortunately, Nurkostam has been added into a totally wrong category. If you look at the reviews we have received you will be confirmed of that. Nurkostam music is very diverse; it is difficult to categorize. Personally, I think the sub genre we have been put now (Neo) is the most unsuitable.
 
If I was to decide the category it would be eclectic, symphonic or crossover - in that particular order. Please reconsider the sub genre position of this group.

agree, they have nothing to do with neo prog at all, they maybe be at cross or post or even space, but definetly not neo, this thing misslead many listners, included me.  Anyway worth some spins if you will have the albums, not bad not great either.

I've reviewed two of your albums now, and really couldn't agree more. Eclectic for me, or crossover if that team disagreed.

Lazland; if you suggest a re-classification, you will get my vote. I also agree with you and the band. Let's get this sorted out.

I agree Neo isn't the best place for them, but the sure do have roots in the genre.

I think we should concentrate more on the fruit than the roots. What I taste when I take a bite or fifty of the fruit is not Neo Prog.
