Doktor Kettu - "Kriegsphilosophie"
(Super Metsa 005 )
Uploaded to Aural Innovations: February 2004
Super Metsa is the new CD-R label run by Jussi Lehtisalo (Circle, Pharoah Overlord, Ektro label, etc.). Each release is limited to 100 copies with original artwork. I am not sure how many CDs have been produced but this is number 5. There is no information about who is involved with the project but I have been told by a friend (Santtu) that they are Pori musicians, including people from Circle. Kettu is the Finnish word for Fox if you are wondering. There are 3 long tracks all with German titles. They are all basically dark, brooding electronic drones that would go very well in a David Lynch movie. There is guitar, drums, samples of strange sounds, etc. It sounds like it was recorded in a cave under a busy bridge in NYC or something. You can order this from several mail order places on the internet (Hellride Music, Aquarius Records). Strange stuff recorded in two days in October 2003.
