Älymystö will perform a special show in Là-bas -> Irma Optimist festival in 16th of November 2013 in Galleria Huuto. You can expect something different than a traditional live show from us during this evening.

“Live action of the exhibition program contains sound art events and a series of long-durational performances by international and Finnish artists.”

…and just a week after that, we will perform a more traditional show in Findustry’s synthetic metal event in On the Rocks, 23th of November, where we share the stage with Cold Cold Ground and Iiwanajulma.

So choose your poison and see you in Helsinki in November!

Älymystö is proud to present the first album since Atomgrad, Unsealed (2002 – 2013). What you get is a collection of unreleased tracks from Älymystö’s 11 year old journey, reimaginings from songs that are already familiar to you, and something totally new you haven’t yet heard even on gigs.

Get the album from Band Camp, and share the news! Then come see us at Infektio this Saturday or in Latvia next week.

All revenue from the album sales will go directly into production of our upcoming album, tentatively named Magnum Opus, crowdfunding here: www.igg.me/at/alymysto

Just a quick update: Unfortunately Älymystö will NOT be performing live in Tallinn 31st of August 2013 because of double booking at the venue. Our apologies for the misinformation and hoping to get to perform in Tallinn soon again.

Luckily it’s not all bad news. We have also received a booking for live show in 16th of November in Helsinki. More details TBA.

Älymystö Magnum Opus

The band has decided to lay the groundwork for their next album now, at the turn of the tide. The second album, carrying the project name MAGNUM OPUS, will dig deep into the murderous depths of dark, experimental industrial noise metal, unearthing the unspeakable and renewing the industrial music world once and for all.

The aim with the crowd funding campaign is to raise money for the recording process of the album, to deliver the MAGNUM OPUS in the best, highest quality to the audience. The release will happen simultaneously on CD and vinyl as well as a digital release via iTunes and Spotify.

As perks, we are offering a wide array of hands-on Älymystö regalia, ranging from album sets to T-shirts, even offering to record a song on a topic you choose. Your name will be engraved forever on the release.

Support your local industrial weirdness, join the Intelligentsia, become a better human being.

It’s alive! Again! 3 shows & CD release booked for August 2013

I have some good news to announce: Älymystö will release a compilation album in august and also perform 3 live shows to celebrate the event!

Nakts Maina III

For a while things within Älymystö have been more active behind the curtains of silence. Some time ago the old and apparently not-so-trustworthy studio computer of Studio Vainohulluus came crashing down, breaking down the main harddrive and erasing majority of Älymystö raw material. Only pre-mixed bounces of the tracks survived since my backup routine was a bit, err, forgotten. So, we were left with a pile of unreleased demo tracks from various parts of our career: sounds like a legit time to clean up the table and release a compilation CD by Älymystö.

We are still shaping the release to it’s final form, but for now the running time is approximately 60 minutes and it’s made of some completely unreleased tracks, some new mixes of old songs, and even some live tracks from old shows. The release date of this baby is set to 15.08.2013. More info TBA.

To accompany the release, Älymystö will perform 3 shows in late August 2013, starting off with Helsinki on Saturday the 24th with an evening hosted by Club Infektio. The next stop will take us traditionally to Latvia, where Nakts Maina III is taking place in 30th of August, and the final leg in Tallinn is yet to be announced.

That’s all for now, more information to follow & cheers in the meanwhile!

Näin lataat bändimme Atomgrad-albumin Pirate Baysta blokkauksen ohi

Written by Älymystö on Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Piratismin vastainen taistelu jatkuu verkossa TTVK:n ja IFPI:n huitoessa tuulimyllyjä ja netistä jotain ymmärtävien katsellessa sivusta vaivautuneena. Viimeisin väsyttävä törppöily koskee Pirate Bay -sivuston blokkausta, josta jo pari mediaa ovat ehtineet uutisoida, että nyt se laiton lataaminen loppui. Valitettavasti vain missään maassa, jossa tämä blokkaus on toteutettu, sillä ei ole todettu olevan kuin korkeintaan hyvin lyhytaikainen vaikutus palvelun käyttämiseen. Älymystön kannalta tämä blokkailu on vähän tylsä veto, sillä levitämme mm. Atomgrad-albumiamme promootiomielessä Pirate Bayn kautta. Lienee siis tarpeen esitellä nykyisille ja tuleville faneillemme kuinka tämän hyödyttömän eston voi kiertää minuutissa.

Video: NEGA live! @ Ku4vals

So, things remain to be rather silent for Älymystö, but that doesn’t mean we couldn’t play live in different projects. In this summer I toured as a member of NEGA, a shapeshifter-project founded by Mr. Pilvari Pirtola around 10 years ago. My time is too short to fill you in with all the details, but we played in 2+ Year Anniversary of Servataguse Muusika @ Tallinn, Estonia & 4th Kuucvaals industrial festival @ Lielauce, Latvia. This time NEGA was Mr. Pilvari, Mr. Paalanen & me – and to maximize the live effort, the tour also included solo performances of both NOSFE & TAPHEAD in both locations (for me, one show per event was enough and I decided to be just merrily drunk, enjoy the events and catch the latest news from all my Baltic friends). All in all, it was the best weekend of this summer for me, so a huge thank you for everyone involved.

So, here’s a video from our 22th of July live show at Kuucvaals. The sound quality isn’t perfect, but that will be fixed later on as the whole show will be released as mp3s on a certain web-label. Stay tuned for that.
