"Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta"
Released: November 24, 2017
I strongly expressed my opinion that you obtain Kohti Tuhoa's first album in the post located here: https://frankfoe.blogspot.com/2016/07/kohti-tuhoa-rutiinin-orja.html
Kohti Tuhoa are from Helsinki, Finland. Ville (Guitar), Aleksi (Bass), Markus (Drums) and Helena (Vocals) continue to destroy on their second LP.
Give a listen. I suggest starting with "Maan Tapa" and "Meille on valehdeltu". I think both songs offer how Kohti Tuhoa add vintage punk to their classic Finnish hardcore and Discharge influences.
In my previous write up, I let you know how I love hardcore from this part of the world, how I used to send cash in envelopes to bands and record labels in this part of the world to obtain 7"s of bands that obviously influenced Kohti Tuhoa.
I spoke how I love Helena's vocals. I have always loved female vocalists. I've always also been fascinated on not placing importance on understanding vocals. Being a fan of punk, hardcore, death metal etc... I rarely understand the lyrics, but love the use of the vocals as a musical instrument. Helena is entrancing in this manner. Her delivery, power and energy are captivating.
So we can use translation pages... Kohti Tuhoa [translation; Towards Destruction], "Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta" [translation: "Fourth Kingdom of Fear"] and Rutiinin Orja [translation: "Slaves to Routine"].
Kohti Tuhoa and Southern Lord can do no wrong.
