Happy new year!
Alright people! As the winter approaches
we have began to write new material! Somehow
we missed this awesome review coming from
Italy by Emanuele Tito @ rockgarage.it!
It is actually a very good summary what Malicious
Mind was all about! Here`s a free translation
" From Finland comes Malicious Mind by Godlike: at first glance it sounds
like a heavy metal album, but eventually we realize that in fact, this work
presents a lot more. There are influences from more extreme metal, especially
death, all mixed together with a classic atmosphere of nu metal. Lahtinen is a
singer with great abilities: very good at rapping and you can hear him often sing
in clean or even scream. The flow that is able to create rapping is in perfect harmony
with the atmosphere of the pieces and the moments in which he sings in scream go
hand in hand with the rockiness of the guitar riffs. Sickness and Original Rebels are
good examples. His lyrics are mostly complaints of a social nature, treating issues
such as discomfort and anger. Nyman and Nieminen have probably played around
when being kids: they do not limit themselves to the usual riff-style nu metal, but we
can listen to various types of solos, from the most technical and fast, those dedicated
to exalt a particular melody. As already mentioned, there are influences from death
and thrash (Reasons For My Rage, Meth) and a little bit of stoner. The intro of
Confrontation is a good example. Both use fewer side effects, although in some songs
you may notice some sound experimentation. Beautiful riffs in Shi No Negai, really
compact and perfectly stuck with the bass lines of the other Nieminen (probably his brother).
Ismo is a bit '"behind the scenes" but surprisingly, particularly noting funky influences in his
playing and go hand in hand with the battery. He also takes care of the choruses, in fact you
can hear him in several pieces while accompanying Lahtinen. Behind The Gates (as well
as The Story Of Sandra Jones) has a clean intro, and then flows aggressively in a fantastic
groove, introduced by Alanko. Rami is a drummer with a pure rhythmic pace! It`s games
cash (often backbeat), give a peculiar rhythm to each song, accompanied by a nice
set of dishes. There is no shortage of foreign exchange rate and hints of double bass,
all holding on 4.4 almost always dry and precise. Very nice intro to Artificial Eminence,
where beating drum and tom, it creates a nice rhythm as the basis for other instruments.
In almost every piece of work, what is striking is the groove; instruments spread anger and
power everywhere: scream and aggressive rapping, walls of distorted guitars and bass,
drums, concise, to flow into melodic fragments here and there (the most beautiful is in
The Story Of Sandra Jones). A particularly versatile album, in which the Finns Godlike
give their best to avoid playing "the same old song" nu metal."
We have some songs @ soundcloud
too! You can follow us HERE!
Have a nice summer everyone!
We`ve had a loooooong break
because so much has happened
outside the music biz and we
are constantly fighting against
timetables to get things running
again. Meanwhile you can check
out our new collection of awesome
t-shirts with brand new graphics
YleX, one the biggest radio stations in
Finland chose us as the "garage band
of the week" and they considered us
to be a very promising band with an old
school flavor of the 90`s! Yay! The article
is here written in Finnish.
