February 5th 2020
For immediate release
|Endless Forms Most Gruesome is a musical project consisting of Juuso Raatikainen (Swallow the Sun) and Manne Ikonen (Ghost Brigade). General sound of the project can be described as muddy, sludgy and groovy. Lyrical themes are rooted to mental health issues and inner dialogues caused by them. Listen to “The Watchers”:|
EFMG is a rather natural musical continuum to songwriter Raatikainen. The youth spent listening to Central Finland area bands like Ghost Brigade and Swallow the Sun, yet absorbing influences from American bands like Korn and Deftones manifests itself as groovy, low tuned riffs with an experimental touch. “I just felt, I was suppose to write an album like this. It’s my tribute to bass register guitars and November vibes in Central Finland”, Raatikainen adds.
