The END 1977 – 2020 The First Finnish Heavy Metal Band – SARCOFAGUS – calls it a day!

SARCOFAGUS, The Godfathers of Finnish Heavy Metal, fronted by filmmaker and guitarist Kimmo Kuusniemi, declares the band has returned to the Valley Of The Kings.

Kimmo Kuusniemi: “Sarcofagus has been great balance of fun and pain. My albums have always had social commentary as many of my films have. I had come to the conclusions on the CORE VALUES re-release video long before the Covid19 pandemic arrived, that I am fed up with writing songs about social problems. Technology is progressing with ever increasing speed but us as humans we seem to be doomed to repeat our mistakes.

Since Covid started I have been working on a new audio visual project. This combines my need to create something new both in music and in film. There is already several songs finished with collaboration with great musicians from Siberia to Los Angeles.

Gibb continues to receive widespread attention ahead of the release, including an extensive profile at The New York Times, who praises, “Gibb’s voice on ‘Words of a Fool’ is strong but also spectral…Nearly six decades after he first sang on a record, it remains one of the most otherworldly instruments in popular music.” He was also recently featured as part of Rolling Stone’s “Musicians On Musicians” issue speaking with Jason Isbell and, last month, was a guest on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

“No Son of Mine” ignites the second half of Medicine at Midnight with a lightning strike of a riFF that builds into the album’s most full-on barnstormer. Replete with nods to familiar FF influences from Queen’s “Stone Cold Crazy” to Ace of Spades/Iron Fist-era Motörhead to Metallica’s Kill ‘Em All, “No Son of Mine” features a streamlined, minimalist chassis of searing Grohl, Smear and Shiflett licks atop a steel-trap-tight Hawkins/Mendel rhythmic frame.

Jeremy Porter & The Tucos Release of first single “Dead Ringer”

For the unindoctrinated, the Tucos are a rave up, rock and roll band of the highest, truest order; they sound like guitars and whiskey, hooks and heartache, and sullen, youthful defiance. Fit alongside a variety of forbearers, from Cheap Trick to Gram Parsons, Hüsker Dü to Uncle Tupelo, Merle Haggard to AC/DC, the racket they conjure echoes a bit of each, but stands unique in its own right. Simply, it’s rebellious and reverent Detroit rock and roll, even Detroit might not be ready for it.
