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

Written by Herra Haapanen on Saturday, May 25th, 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. More details here:

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

Written by Herra Haapanen on Thursday, July 28th, 2011


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.

Still alive and breathing – new live date booked: 26.2 @ Dog’s Home / Tampere

Written by Herra Haapanen on Wednesday, December 29th, 2010


As some of you might have noticed, things seem to have been relatively silent for Älymystö lately. The reason for that is simple: all of us have been more or less busy with our personal lifes. Especially Mr. Vuorensola, who has been focusing on directing the Iron Sky movie, which is now in production phase, due to be released to theatrical distribution world-wide in early 2012.

However, I managed to steal a couple of days from his time and as a result Älymystö will perform live at 26th of February 2011 in Dog’s Home, Tampere, along with Vilkduja and Oorchach. The show will present you some new goodies along with the more traditional pieces of our live set.

In other news, the 12″-split vinyl release of 19:38:00 has been post-poned until further notice. To tell you the truth we don’t know much more about it either, from our part the material has been ready for release for well over a year now. All inquiries about that matter should be directed to Skithund Records. Regardless of the fate of vinyl release, we are planning to release a CD version of our side of 19:38:00 with some added bonuses somewhere in the future.

Guest Theremin on Enochian Crescent’s NEF.VI.LIM

Written by Herra Honkonen on Wednesday, May 5th, 2010


Last summer I had a great time at the Tuska metal festival playing theremin on the stage with Enochian Crescent. They liked what they came up with for the song Muistoja Sorkasta and earlier this year they asked me to record it for their new album, NEF.VI.LIM.

The album is now out, theremin and all, and currently on the first place of Finland’s mid-price top-10 list. If you want to check out some quality black metal for Finland, go get it!

Spinoff: “800 Memories Per Second” by taphead now available

Written by Herra Paalanen on Wednesday, April 21st, 2010


As some of you may have heard, I’ve been working on a solo album this year, and I’m happy to say it is now available for enjoyment by humans. The album is called 800 Memories Per Second and it’s a collection of mostly live improvisations recorded over a period of two years or so.

The album should appeal to fans of the more ambient side of Älymystö.

Here’s where it resides. It’s available as a free download and under a Creative Commons license, so feel free to spread the word and/or the files. Do it now.

(Also feel free to follow me on Twitter or on Facebook.)

ITEM! 19:38:00 by ATYD/Älymystö will be coming out on vinyl in May. The graphics look damn nice.

19:38:00 now available on Spotify

The split release with And Then You Die is finally up on Spotify. Took three months, but hopefully it was worth the wait.
