What a great weekend of noise, power electronics and industrial music in London! Meeting old and new friends, witnessing an absolutely fantastic two day event with lots of great acts at a very nice venue. Some notes of the weekend with pics below, sugarcoated with some one liners that I penned to my notebook during the trip.

Thursday

I had early wake up after just three hours of sleep at 4 am. As I walked through Turku the city looked like a warzone after the 1st of May celebration. Broken bottles, broken places, vomit, shit and carbage everywhere. Some drunks were still alive and crawling the quiet streets. It was cold and snowing.

I met Pekka PT at the airport. Air Baltic took us to Riga where to our surprise we needed to spend some six hours instead of one to our connection flight to London. Coffee, bread, some chocolate, good talks. I did read Juha Jyrkäs’ Ouramoinen (Salakirjat, 2014) from cover to cover, some of the best lines of it out loud.

Pekka PT reading a zionist rant.

Air Baltic seems to revel in Engrish. ”Exlusively on board” and ”for saftey reasons” made us smile. Some zionist had made hilarious ranting notes over an article about Israel into the airline magazine. We almost stereo-spanked an air hostess who kept on bending over next to us. She was clearly asking for it.

Gatwick express to Victoria. Lovely peaceful half an hour with a very British scenery, including the legendary Battersea powersation. After surviving some metro stations and a short walk we found our hostel and went to check the venue, the Apiary studios. Then it was time for some nourishment and we hit Raizes, a Brazilian restaurant. The place was so damn good it became our regular spot of gluttony for our whole stay.

Members of Bizarre uproar, Sick seed, Halthan, Pogrom and Unclean met. Pogrom kindly gave us copies of Creation through destruction and The entrancing cage by Maxacan tactics. We walked back to our hostel in rain and hit our beds. There was some truly hellish noise outside but it didn’t disturb us a bit. We slept like dead soldiers of the second world war.

Friday

I wanted to visit the St. Leonard’s, Shoreditch, church that was very close to our hostel. The place looked charmingly ramshackled from the outside and it was that also from the inside. We found impressive stocks and some pretty swastika-decoration. The place was empty, except for an army of spirits roaming around. I decided we needed to come back there on Sunday.

Meeting the very nice guys who arranged the event. Artists and other people arriving to the place. Soundchecks. Arrangements run smoothly, spirits high. It was clear that everything was done professionally. The venue was perfect with wonderful staff. The backstage was cozy and decorated with good taste. I think it is the coolest backstage I’ve seen in ages.

The gig started in time, Am not as an opening act at 8 pm after Dj Andrew CPFA’s selected music. Am not (UK) blasted a great set with a thought provoking background video that dealt among other things with colonianism. Superb.

Umpio (FIN) was the next to stand on the stage. Pentti whipped and beat the hell out of the metal junk he had collected for the set, with his trademark energy. Nice intense noise.

IMG_6050

Unclean (FIN) opened his power electronics set with some Finnish song, I don’t remember what, but it placed proper mood for the rest of the set. From the voice samples used I recognized Veli Saarikalle, a legendary past Finnish religious preacher, a hilarious raving lunatic. Other samples used dealth with religion, for what I remember. Proud, loud, well executed set with a nice finale of smashing the CD-player against the wall.

Bizarre uproar (FIN) played in Helsinki just a week before this gig. If I’m correct, the set was the same including the famous masturbation/piss/shit/latex and high heels on a dead rat-video. The duo whipped more intense and electrifying set than that of Helsinki, which in itself was good. There was one confrontation between the bass player and a member of the audience who continually tried to grasp the artists instrument. One firm push from the pig-masked bassist gave a clear message and there was no more interference to his playing. The mastermind behind Bizarre uproar bombarded the audience with intense vocals like stukas in action in 1944. It was clear that the audience was happy with the result.

IMG_6129

I had heard lots of positive notes about Iron fist of the sun that played the next. Those notes were correct. The man, at times with headphones on his head, gave us a very delicate set with nice nyances and brilliant sounds, superbly structured together. This was definitely one of the sets that I enjoyed the most this evening.

Dj Codex Europe closed the evening musically.

The Finns returned to their hostel, carrying one heavily chemically wounded comrade the whole way. The spirit of the Winter war lives, no comrade was left on the battle field.

Saturday

The day started with traditional English breakfast in the great company of Bizarre uproar, Sick seed, Shift and Iron fist of the sun.

IMG_6166

SSRI (FIN) opened Saturday at 3 pm. Regardless of the early starting time there were lots of people present, the place was certainly not empty. As Mika of Unclean said, Pekka PT is a ”mad genius” and this is true and it certainly was evident, again. There was Aleister Crowley’s speaking in the spoken samples. At the end of the set it looked like there was some technical trouble in the set, but there was not. The whole final part with the c-tape player, ending in smashing it, was all purposeful.

IMG_6220

IMG_6229

IMG_6214

A reliable source told Mesikämmen that this was the last gig of SSRI and that the whole project is finished, except for already agreed publications and such.

It must also be noted that Pekka was like Peter Sellers in Dr. Strangelove during the event – he played in three different acts: Bizarre uproar, SSRI and Sick Seed. I am not surprised if there were people in the audience who did not recognize all of these roles instantly. I certainly did not figure out that Sellers played three roles in the movie when I saw it the first time.

Mollusk King (UK) smashed a traffic sign with sticks and gave his clearly own kind of addition to the evening. I might be wrong and I probably am, but my first impression was that this is a guy with a background in gothic scene who has started to do power electronics.

Shift (UK) marched to the stage at 4.30 pm. Two guys in commando beanies, military camouflage, project badges in their uniform. This was some tight stuff. It was technically well executed, provocative with middle fingers and a march into the middle of the audience. It was evident that Shift was much appreciated by the crowd, and with a good reason.

After Shift there was a break. Dj. Andrew CPFA continued the program at 7 pm. Halthan (FIN) started his set a bit after 8 pm.

”Join Halthan jugend now” projected on the wall before the gig begun gave a certain impression to everyone present. What the audience got once the set began was a tsunami of nihilism and misanthrophy. Basse offered the audience a bottle of Finnish Salmiakki-Koskenkorva booze as a sort of communion. Quotes from Pentti Linkola were seen projected on the wall as well as some provocative pictures of Pekka Eric-Auvinen and his manifesto. Basse weared a Pekka Siitoin Kiitos-t-shirt, manifesting a sort of an egregore of many Finns in the genre. Mesikämmen approves.

IMG_6431

There certainly was a sense of danger in this set. I was forewarned to not be in the front row if I wanted to avoid Salmiakki-Koskenkorva being spitted on me or getting into a confrontation. I decided to take a safe position to witness it all. Niko of the Obscurex label was more brave and got duly attacked during the gig by Halthan. I later heard it was not the first time Halthan attacked him live. Damn, Basse, the next time confront a guy who is bigger than you! Anyway, maybe there is a reason why Halthan has been called the G.G. Allin of the genre. I certainly wish the man a smoother life than what Jesus Christ Allin had.

There was a ”secret act” in the program starting at 8.50 pm. That was Pogrom (LIT). He gave us an awesome gig with an awesome background video that consistend of three parts. All of them were titled ”Solace” of different kinds. Part two was Solace of madness, part three solace of suicide. The first part’s name escapes my memory. I visually liked especially the second part with its abstact description of madness. This was a very nice set from Pogrom on many levels.

IMG_6485

Human larvae (GER) walked on the stage next. The long haired Teuton gave some hard threatment to a piece of aluminium and all in all gave the audience an awesome experience.

IMG_6496

IMG_6497

Stab electronics (UK) started with some very strong visuals about open bodies. The power electronics bombarded to the audience matched the imagery perfectly. At that point my camera’s battery died and I went to backstage. What I heard from the rest of Stab electronics from others, it was great.

Sick seed (FIN) closed the event. As it has been clear from Sick seed’s latest gigs the project has traveled into some new areas, quite different from earlier Sick seed material. This was industrial with a twist.

A reliable source told Mesikämmen that there was a meditation and some sort of a ritual done at a quiet backstage before the gig. Instant comments after the gig from Pena of Umpio were ”weird!” and ”white boys funk!”. Maybe he has a point. There were some new tracks in the set and two covers: And the snow fell and Mutiny in heaven.

In addition to the live acts there was a large room with art videos projected on the wall, distro tables from Filth and Violence, Unrest productions and Cold spring. Lots of good stuff that made me wish my budget and luggage was bigger. Unrest productions did sell a limited edition compilation tape Hatred is nothing without action which features all the artist who were on the event’s bill. There might still be some copies of the tape left if you are interested.

During the two day event there was enthusiastic audience at least from the UK, Finland, Lithuania, Germany, Norway, Holland, Bulgaria, Sweden and Italy. The artists were brilliant, the event was professionally arranged by Filth & violence and Unrest productions, the venue was perfect. The place was packed and it can be said that it was a huge success in many ways.

Sunday

We hadn’t had the traditional British fish and chips with Pekka PT yet, so that was in our ”must to do”-list. Before of that we went to St. Leonard’s, Shoreditch, church that we visited on Friday. The priest noted us in the opening of his sermon. I liked that. The next thing I’m going to say is that the past genius, Wesley Willis, made a great track called They threw me out of church.

Fish and chips, we got it. And we got lots more. This was a great weekend.

Halthan is harsh and violent noise/power electronics from Finland. Mesikämmen had been following the artist’s doings for some time when a new Halthan CD I am your enemy came out. The CD made an impression on the old bear and it felt just natural to make an interview with the artist. So, here, ladies and gentlemen – Halthan speaks!

– – –

For the starters

Who are you, what do you do and how are you doing?

Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
I’ve been around for a long, long year
stole many a man’s soul and faith.

And I was ’round when Jesus Christ
had his moment of doubt and pain
made damn sure that Pilate
washed his hands and sealed his fate
.

And i´m feeling great.

If this interview could take place anywhere, anytime, real or imaginary space, where would we be making this interview?

In Seili which is a island near town of Parainen. It worked as hospital for lepers (1619-1785), then it was a mental hospital (1785-1962). I´ve heard they used pretty rough methods in treatment for (female) patients.

What is music?

Music can be found (almost) from everywhere, but I have no idea what it actually is, do you know?

Is Halthan music?

Definetely yes. Same can be asked, if all these overproduced, overtly marketed Finnish/American idols, X-factors are music?

What are your main influences?

Con-Dom, Genocide Organ, Grey Wolves, S.P.K. etc, etc… Non-musical influences are way too long to list, but overall it´s about everything that this degenerated human race does.

How and when Halthan got started in the first place? How you came up with the name “Halthan”?

Halthan was born out of anger, curiosity & boredom. I had been many years in Finnish punk/hc-scene, but started to get annoyed with all it´s rules, dogmas, pc-attitude (+few personal conflicts) and I was thinking like if they (bands mentioned before) can do it, so can I. So I started toying around with all kinds of sounds, experimenting, learning different techniques and so on. This all was around 2001-2003. The name “Halthan” was/is ancient germanic word, and Finnish word “Hallita” (to govern, rule, reign) is derived from word “Halthan”. Original indoeuropean meaning was “to drive cattle” which I find suitable. Afterall, what humans are but tamed cattle?

How are you inclined politically and ideologically? Did you vote in the last presidential elections?

This is tough one. I´ve mostly considered myself a nihilist. Modern world is full of different moral/political ideologies which are, in the end, different sides of the same coin and all that leads to dead end. Halthan is political, but in other hand we also demand destruction/rejection of all politics/ideologies. And, no
I didn´t vote!

Halthan made a gig recently in a private setting in Helsinki. Where was it, what was it all like, how your gig went?

It was held at F&V headquarters in Mellunmäki (east-helsinki), middle of industrial area. I like these private gigs a lot, mainly ´cause it keeps the morons away, so the atmosphere is usually very friendly and you can do what ever you want. Besides it´s quite difficult to get our kinda bands into regular clubs. Halthan went quite well. Mr. Bizarre helped me with electronics. We had all kinda paraphernalia on the stage: printed propaganda, wooden cross with (USA, Israel, EU and Islam) flags stapled into it (and I smashed the whole fucker during the gig) and a box full of bloody syringes and coins which I handed over to people (seems like most of them didn´t get the allegory of it). It was 25 min full of hatred. Other performers were Umpio (from Turku) which was really good. Not so noisy as usual, more rhytm(?) oriented metaljunk abuse and contact mic mayhem. Roman Pilates (from Canada) was headlining and totally not my cup of tea. Unfocused hipsternoise with too low volume.

I am your enemy

There is a new CD out from you, I am your enemy. Tell us something about it – How the new release differs from your earlier stuff or how is it similar to them? How you came up with the name for the CD?

It took pretty long to put together due some personal problems. Process was a bit different than before, basics were done in usual way which means recording all kind of sounds, samples, pulses etc..and then I tried to make something what could be called (even distantly) as music. But this time we (me and F&V) kinda re-recorded the whole shit and vocals through BIG amps so that added some extra pressure and aggression into it. Minus-side was that some details were buried under the massive wall of sound. Title just popped into my mind one day and it´s self-explanatory, ´nuff said.

The sound and atmosphere on the new CD is very intense, harsh and violent. How this was accomplished, what kind of equipment you used, etc.? Are you satisfied with the result?

Violence (mental and physical) has always been very essence of Halthan, so it came naturally and when recording something I let out my inner demons or something like that… In this record I mostly used field recordings and different kinda metal junk as a sound sources, and later I treated them via some effects PC-multitracker and result is very satisfying.

There are six very powerful tracks on the CD; Obliterate the nation, Saligia, Glorious perdition, Bloodline, Invisible war and Musta Saara. The last track is maybe the one that most stands out of the whole package. How you got inspired to make a track out of that old religious hymn?

I´ve heard it only once before I decided to Halthanize it and as a hymn it is pretty standard material, but the lyrics were excellent stuff, something I´d call “christian imperialism”. Hymn is quite old (at least 70years i guess) and it´s now banned here ´cause of racist content, hah.

“Ei taivahassa kuolon vaaraa,/No danger of death in heaven,
ei kyyneleitä, yötäkään”./no tears, no night”.
Näin lauloi kerran musta Saara,/So sang black Saara once,
pien’ neekerlapsi hyvillään./little nigger child, happy.

Taivaassa Herra tuskat poistaa/In heaven Lord removes pains
ja huokaukset kokonaan./and sights completely.
Siell’ Herran kasvot mulle loistaa,/Face of the Lord will shine for me there,
siell’ luonaan aina olla saan./I can always be with him there.

Hän kertovan on kuullut kerran/She has heard once
näin opettajan valkoisen./a white teacher to tell so.
Hän armosta sai kuulla Herran/She heard about mercy of the Lord
ja ystävästä lapsien./and of a friend of children.

Hän sai myös kaupungista kuulla,/She also heard of a city
joll’ ompi autuus muurinaan./that has a bliss as its wall.
Hän siellä kerran riemusuulla/She wishes that also she
myös tahtois kiittää Jeesustaan./could thank Jesus with joyful mouth there once.

Nyt riutuu raukka tuskissansa/Now she wretched suffers in pain
hän siinä olkivuoteellaan,/on her straw bed,
mutt’ rauha lepää kasvoillansa/but she has peace on her face
ja riemu loistaa katseestaan./and joy shines from her eyes.

Ja ystävää ei vierellänsä,/She has no friend beside her,
vaikk’ kova ompi vuoteensa./although her bed is hard
Hän tuskat kantaa yksinänsä/She bears her pains alone
niin onnellisna, iloisna./so glad, so happy.

Ei miettimästä voi hän laata/She can’t stop thinking
nyt noita ihmesanoja./about those words of wonder
Hän muistaa tuota “uutta maata”/She remembers that “new land”
ja “uuden taivaan” riemua./and joys of “new heaven”.

“Oi, kuolemaa ei taivahassa”,/”Oh, no death in heaven”,
hän laulaa aina hiljempään./she sings as her voice dims.
“Ei tuskaa niin kuin maailmassa,/”No pain there as in the world,
ei itkua, ei yötäkään.”/no crying, no night”.

Hän huokaa yhä heikommasti:/She sights even dimmer:
“Oi kaupunki, sä kultainen!/”Oh you golden city!
– Ei kuolemaa”, ja rauhaisasti/-No death”, and peacefully
hän vaipuu kuolon unehen./she fades into a sleep of death.

Nyt Jeesuksensa kunniaksi/Now for the glory of Jesus
hän soittaa siellä kanneltaan./she plays her kantele there.
Karitsan veri valkeaksi/The blood of lamb turned
sai mustan Saaran kokonaan./black Saara completely white.

Mesikämmen can translate this into english, I´m too lazy. [Done! – Mesikämmen].

Where to get a copy of your CD?

Romua, ruiskeita, rutinaa

You are featured in a short documentary about Finnish harsh noise and power electronics called Romua, Ruiskeita, Rutinaa that came out the last year. What do you think of the documentary? Did it paint a well representative picture of the genre here?

I´ve not even seen it.

A friend of mine made a comment immediately after seeing the documentary here in Turku that the genre has all the weirdest and freakest individuals in it – that there is not anything quite like that for example in the genre of black metal. Why do you think harsh noise and power electronics genre appeals to this kind of people?

I highly disagree with your friend and I wonder what he means by “weirdest and freakest”? People who I know from this genre, are very stable and sane personalities with realistic sense of what´s going on, unlike (for example) your mentioned BM, which is populated by people whose life is centered in fairytales, imaginary entities, etc… hah. People in HN/PE comes from all walks of life, so their interest is completly personal, or at least it´s the way i see it.

Is harsh noise and power electronics among the “most shocking” genres there are nowadays? Is any music genre anymore truly “dangerous”? Who you count among the most “dangerous”, “shocking” or potentially most challenging persons and artists to the Western consensus reality nowadays?

No, I don´t think so. Of course contents of it might appear as shocking for some people who are not familiar with this genre. I see the contents pretty much as a ultimate reality & grotesque side of humanity, of course it´s sometimes taken to the limits and beyond, but come on… can´t you take a little bit of irony? There´s nothing dangerous in music anymore. It´s all lame entertaintment. Sorry to disappoint you, but no matter how I try i can´t find anyone, not even potential ones.

What do you think of the state of harsh noise and power electronics nowadays – in Finland and worldwide? Where comes the most interesting stuff right now?

It seems to be better than ever, especially here in Finland. Whole “scene” (damn, i hate that word) is very active. Impossible to say any specific area for most interesting stuff, but here´s something I´ve enjoyed a lot lately; Pogrom (Lithunia), Iron Fist Of The Sun (UK), Wertham (Italy), Sick Seed (Finland), Alfarmania (Sweden), STAB Electronics (UK) and so on, and so on. Generally speaking all the good stuff comes from good old Europa, not US, hah!

End notes, future

You are a passionate chili-gardener. How long you’ve been doing that? What types of chilis are your favorites?

Heh, indeed it is my passion/obsession. Been doing that about 7 years now and more seriously about 3 years. I really enjoy the idea of growing your own food (even if it´s “only something” like chilis) and there is great amount of satisfaction when you eat first time your own crop, besides gardening is shitload of fun too. What comes to my personal taste, I prefer fruity, freshy type of chilis like Starfish, Aji Cristal, Habanero (and all varietes of it) and Poblano to name a few. Heat level is not that important for me, flavour comes always first. There are so many varietys, so it is sometimes difficult to choose something new for the next season… or what the fuck, I wanna try them all, heh.

What kind of plans you have for the future? Any confirmed gigs etc.?

No gigs in sight (if anyone wants to book us, drop me a line)

Do you already have ideas regarding new material? Pekka Siitoin theme album?

Yes, I´m planning Siitoin related stuff, but it´s all still open. It turned out to be more difficult task than I expected, I want to combine different elements in it and find the right balance between them. Idea is to make stuff that deals with his occult side, not with political side (that has been done several times already with bad results).

What makes you happy?

Quality time with my son… the rest is war…
