Höyry-Kone - Huono Parturi (1997)


Höyry-Kone is an avant-garde progressive rock band that is affectionately called "Finn Crimson" by fans, and for good reason. Huono Parturi is an album for the adventurous: listeners can expect to hear incredible, yet tasteful operatic vocals (unlike, say, Diablo Swing Orchestra); soaring strings that aren't afraid chug along with the guitars when some gnarly riffage is in order; and a folky aesthetic made possible in part by the variety of instruments present on the album (everything from violin to pump organs). Think of it as the product of a three-way between King Crimson, Mr. Bungle, and Sleepytime Gorilla Museum. Except that the result isn't nearly as terrifying as it might seem on paper.
