Dai Kaht – Dai Kaht (TKGO01, 2017)
Dai Kaht is a great debut album by a Finnish band deeply inspired by 1970s progressive rock and Zeuhl, the innovative progressive music genre developed by French band Magma. Following Zeuhl tradition, the band members have created their own language, which they use in their songs.
Although the band’s sound definitely draws a lot of ideas from Zeuhl, the sound is more rock oriented, featuring two guitar players; it’s less jazzy and operatic than Magma.
The band members have adopted artistic names in their new language: Alemaahr Kempah (Atte Kemppainen) on vocals and bass; Willargh Shirow (Ville Sirvio) on guitar; Zwerie Stöbah (Tommi Ruotsalainen) on rhythm guitar; and Ozamö Sharif (Osmo Saarinen) on drums, vocals.
Dai Kaht is a remarkable Zeuhl album by a talented prog rock band from Finland with a promising future.
