Helsinki, Finland’s hardcore punk rockers, KOHTI TUHOA, are streaming their ‘Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta‘ [translation: “Fourth Kingdom Of Fear“] full-length ahead of its imminent release. Southern Lord Recordings will release the vinyl LP and digital formats of the album in North America on November 24th.
Recorded in May 2017 at V.R. Studio in Turku, Finland, ‘Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta’ was engineered by Jussi Vuola, mixed by Jussi Vuola and KOHTI TUHOA, mastered and cut by Jukka Sarapää at Timmion Cutting, and finalized with artwork by returning artist Jaakko Karjula. The album delivers twelve relentlessly rousing tracks of socio-political unrest, including a cover of Painajainen’s “Saatanan Lampaat.”
KOHTI TUHOA just completed its first North American tour earlier this month with a run through the East Coast of the U.S. and Canada. A video of the band’s entire set from their Brooklyn’s Brooklyn Bazaar show was captured via the wonderful Max Volume Silence and is streaming in full further below.
