Hukkunud Hinged – Puhastustuli


Hukkunud Hinged – Puhastustuli
Self released – 2013
Rock, Doom, Metal
Rated: ***

Doomed and perished souls from some forlorn cave in Estonia are speaking, nay howling, nay grunting and growling to us through the new album Puhastustuli from the Hukkunud Hinged fivesome. With both female and male vocals we are confronted with Estonian poetry. And even though most of us will probably understand very little of the actual lyrics; the voices, melodies and vocal rhythms fit perfectly with the doom and hardrock riffs that chug away on the foundation of some damn well excellent drums. A fuzzy lo-fi production adds to the arcane atmosphere that seems to flow like an underground river beneath it all. Heavy and with grand gestures the nine tracks deliver in highly musical doom that also has a naturalistic quality to it. I reckon it’s time to learn Estonian… Terviseks!
