Herra Ylppö & Ihmiset – Sata Vuotta

{mosimage}The front man of Finnish band Maj Karma is in good company with the debut album of his new Project.

Mr. Ylppö, who apart from being the singer of Finnish successful metal band Maj Karma works also as graphic designer, gets surrounded by talented people in the first album of Herra Ylppö & Ihmiset: Iranian-Finnish  Hamid Moeini on the guitar, Jami Westergärd who is also a theatre actor on the bass, Jukka Kröger on the drums and Janne Halmkrona, the guitarist of CMX, as special guest.

The band is currently on tour around Finland, so you can have a taste of the project on live. The sound is not as powerful as Maj Karma´s one, but still you can find the special mysticism of Ylppö´s lyrics in the work. My favorite tracks is the homonymous to the album title, Sata Vuotta, and Kleopatra, where you can get totally caught by the special voice of Herra Ylppö, but some other songs are very interesting as well, as the one called Porno, raw, sexy and straight like if we would be listening Kotiteollisuus, and one of the “heaviest” of the record.

In my opinion, one of the best Finnish albums of the last months.

Rate 4/5.
