Album review by Allyson Kingsley Music Journalist with Boston Rock Radio


Well this was an unusual but nonetheless pleasurable review. If you like progressive rock but on a whole new profound level, this is a treat. Malady hail from Helsinki, Finland and the members are Tony Bjorkman (guitarist), Babak Issabeigloo (guitarist/vocalist), Juuso Jylhanlehto (drummer/lyricist), Ville Rohiola (Hammond/keyboard), and Jonni Tanskanen (bassist). Toinen toista is probably the most exquisitely bizarre album I have reviewed to date with such an eclectic mix of styles including progressive with a huge 70s flavor.


“Toinen toista” has a definitive 70s and bluesy feel to it while “Lailu Sisaruksille" features stunning haunting violin. Then we jump into “Tiedon Kehtolaulu" which I can only properly describe as a flamenco or even a disco vibe, very odd, very smooth. “Etsijan elinehto" is mystical, like something you would hear on a Led Zeppelin album. Finally and with a length of almost 23 minutes is “Nurja puoli" that simply envelopes all kinds of elements, blues, classical, rock, etc. It's crests and descends like ocean tides and you hear more guitar riffs. It is almost as if the album builds up to this final climax and it is well worth a sequential listen through. It dares to be different.
