Diskelmä

 

Diskelmä

Their name is a corrupted form of the Finnish word for schlager, and the music, the looks and the general feel appear as if the band took a time machine back in the 1980s or 1970s and arrived here in our midst all of a sudden. One can, therefore, easily be forgiven for thinking that these fellows have been around for quite a while already, but actually Helsinki-based Diskelmä was founded only in 2005. The band is often referred to as a representative of the genre called d-beat that takes its influences heavily from the British hard core, and there are indeed certain features in the music that nod to the direction of Discharge. But more than copying, the name of the game here is tenderly cultivating the traditions of rough and rigid playing style and scorching dynamics. Diskelmä puts their collective physical health at stake at every gig, and will put yours too if you want to join them!
