Later on in this short piece of writing you will find an embedded music video by a Finnish band named Stam1na. At some point you will see an act of dentistry being performed. Now, my girlfriend happens to be a dentist and so I showed it to her, asking her if it was how it’s usually done. She said “no, normally they bleed more”. But brutal dentistry isn’t the only thing painful that vocalist Antti Hyyrynen is subjected to in this video as you abso-fuckin’-lutely need to go find out after the jump.
But first a little more intel, as this band is apparently coming close to being a legend in Finland. They set things in motion in 1996, initially singing in English, but after only three demos switching to Finnish. Their list of releases is incredibly long, but contains mostly demos and splits. Full-length albums released count up to five so far, the last one, titled Nocebo, came out last week.
And on that album we find Valtiaan Uudet Vaateet, the focus of this quicky. A song that is stuffed to the uvula with a vague, abstract concept called ‘groove’, but equally much melodic catchiness. And then there’s the video, nothing short of a masterpiece. Just see for yourself!
