Making any kind of a splash in the ferociously brilliant wading pool that is Finnish metal is an arduous task, made even more so by the pedigree of bands gone before and the talent of those emerging.

The metal scene has always been strong in that part of the world, and although there are a large number of Finnish bands recognised on the international scene (Amorphis, Lordi, Children Of Bodom, Sonata Arctica to name a few) there are also many more going about their daily lives living, breathing, and weaponising heavy metal.

These musicians on the fringe of the market are all clambering for their time to shine, experimenting and practicing their music, often with little or no recognition. And here is where you will find the next breed of musicians, toiling away for the love of art and harnessing the determination and passion of those who came before them.

One such talent is Tomi Perrakoski who has several different projects in development, mostly of his own volition, where he is master of his own domain. Preferring to create and record music within the confines of his own workspace, Perrakoski has recently released his new album Lord Of Chaos from solo project Magnadur.

It is an album that caresses the lines between metal genres and musical mysticism, exploring sound textures and brutality in a sonic realm bound by no rules.

HEAVY recently sat down with Perrakoski to find out more.
