Review Summary: Back to the present.

They say that there’s a first time for everything, and hearing an above-average grind record in these troubled times, and from Finland of all places, certainly confirms this saying. I’m not claiming that Finland doesn’t have what it takes to produce a solid slab of extreme music; quite the contrary, one would think that a country that has spawned countless seminal death metal acts would deliver on the grind front even more viciously. Sure, we have Xysma whom nobody has ever heard of, but then we have current stalwarts like Rotten Sound (yes, they’re a mediocre band, deal with it), Pitbull Terrorist or Death Toll 80k who make me want to erase my RYM profile. Unohdettu Tulevaisuus aren’t sporting anything new, and that’s exactly why they triumph.

There is actually not much to talk about concerning Unohdettu Tulevaisuus’ recently released self-titled EP, which is a good indication of just how fast the record storms by. Clocking in at little over three minutes, the demo offers three thoroughly enjoyable pieces of no-frills grindcore, just the way it’s meant to be hated. The production is noticeably muffled, with aggressive riffs giving off a sweet 90s deathgrind vibe (Dahmer or Disharmonic Orchestra instantly come to mind). Unintelligible, disgusting and ever-stomping, the guitar work reminds us of the filthiness that once dominated the Finnish extreme music scene. For the uninitiated, the vocals will require a bit of tuning in. Insect Warfare fans will have no trouble adjusting though as the gutturals start punching them in the guts right away, with a little help from the raspy second vocalist. And when the steady blast beats start leveling all the recent bull*** grind tendencies to the ground, you know you have found something you long stopped trying to look for. Original or not, Unohdettu Tulevaisuus are the real deal and they will kick that message in your face if you give them the chance.

Nice, concise review. And thank you for admitting that Rotten Sound is only mediocre (I feel the same). Pos! Looking forward to more.
