Return To Void -
Progressive rock playing band was established in Karhula, Finland in 2015. Initially started as a trio (Markku Pihlaja -voc, Saku Hakuli -gtr, Pasi Hakuli -bass), played acoustic versions of Bruce Dickinson solo material under the name of Dick & son´s.
After couple of gigs the band wanted to try with full band so Kalle Kukkonen was summoned to take the drumming duties. Tha magic was immediately there like in good old days of Kaihoro. A band, where they all used played in the past. In the afterglow of successful gig, the idea of a band that would play new an orginal music was born.
The line-up was ready after
synth-wizard Antti Huopainen was lured in.
The winter 2015-2016 was productive time. Full album of songs was composed and rehearsed with ease.
Off to the Studio Korkeakoski. There they recorded all drums with help of Studio Korkeakoski main man Teemu Aalto. Rest was done at the singers
Railroad Records headquarters.
Co-operation with Inverse Records saw daylight in March 2017. Self-titled album will be out at the end of April 2017. Details later...
List of another projects, past and present, includes varied outings like Kaihoro, Total Devastation,
Manitou, Kreyskull, Gran Torino, Demonic death judge...
