Plutonium 74

 

Plutonium 74

Plutonium is a substance known for its longish half-life, and equally patient is Plutonium 74's attitude to this full life: it took the band a total of five years to finish the follower to their debut album Pasilasta Kallioon. But just as plutonium is also familiar as the key component in nuclear weapons, so can this innocent-looking Helsinki-based sightseer also explode to a sixteen-legged super party animal in a whizz.

Impossible to listen to without a broad smile immediately appearing on one's face, Plutonium 74 goes all the way from easy reggae to acoustic crooning and back to prog rock and psychedelia, and though vocalist Ylermi may, in terms of his vocal powers, not be the ideal candidate to be the next singer with Nightwish, his declaratory style suits brilliantly the lyrics where the common and the everydayish suddenly turn into psychedelic journeys through the fantastic worlds just round the corner.
