BAND OF THE WEEK: BEASTMILK (Finland)
YES! something different for the more open minded this time. this is the freshest cassette i've heard since the devil's blood in 2008 or GHOST in 2010. So don't be square now.
Here are some words from Mat, one of the band members:
This is the first "real" band I have ever been in. We rehearse and hang out drinking, we record the stuff live ourselves in our rehearsal room and we all live in the same town. The guy who makes the music lives across the road from me here in Helsinki and the rest are just around the corner! We're just making this music in a vacuum and enjoying obscurity!
We're really inspired by Finnish 80s post-punk. You can see our influences in our friends list and also the video playlist we have is just packed full of AWESOME bands. I should send you a CD of that stuff if you're not already familiar with that scene. . .
