2010 saw the formation of Spiralism, a group who marry psychedelic auras with a heavy and progressive execution.
The bands efforts thus-far culminate into their highly anticipated debut album ‘Chakras’ which will be released in early 2015 via Inverse Records (Demonic Death Judge, Albino Rhino, Magenta Harvest etc.)
The album presents a unique soundscape in which the listener is challenged to compare to any other.
Front man Riku Kuukka explains:
‘People have compared us to many bands operating in same kind of frequency as us, but it seems like everybody has a completely different take, and I am yet to hear two similar descriptions of Spiralism! It is not us to seek to fit within a specific genre or phenomenon. The birth and development of our music is spontaneous, everything starts from riffs and evolves into our own music. This process gave birth to the band’s name ‘Spiralism’: A spontaneously created idea spiralling into a manifestation of our consciousness.
The word ‘Chakras’ and title of the album refers to the seven ‘energy centres’ of the human being. The number seven holds significance to this band, the album utilises riffs from prior to the bands formation, that have been evolving for seven years alongside new ideas, the album has seven songs containing elements from the Occult that produce atmospheric metaphorical and ambiguous stories. The result is a hauntingly beautiful sound worthy of concept-album immersion, which also has the playability of a track by track studio album.
