FORESEEN (Fin) – ‘Helsinki Savagery’ CD

10.00

After a few EPs, including 2013’s well-received Structural Oppression 7-inch, Finland’s Foreseen HKI now break out in the international metal scene with their first LP. An explosive burst of raw crossover, Helsinki Savagery fuses the 1980s iterations of US thrash (Vio-lence, Exodus) and urban hardcore (Cro-Mags, Leeway) to create a merciless album of absolute jawbreakers. A distinctly Finnish rawness and hostility—a hallmark of the country’s incredible hardcore punk bands since the early ’80s—pervades the LP.
