Se, josta ei puhuta’s debut album has already created somewhat of a fuzz among the Finnish Metal scene. The demo (which actually was this album ready to be published) received a great response and as expected, in no time the band signed a record deal with Sound of Finland. SJEP delivers a 10-piece album which is maybe the best thing yet to come out from Iisalmi, a small town in the middle of Finland.
The playing on "Ne, joista ei puhuta" is very professional and the band made just the right choice hiring Dan Swanö (a known Swedish handyman in Metal) to handle mixing and mastering of the album. The useless material has been pruned off and the demo vibe is long gone. The songs are skilfully built and the Black/Death/Thrash combination with some punkish features works surprisingly smoothly despite of what expectations might lead you to believe. The grip around the tracks is nicely tight, not allowing the songs to drift away from their original spirit and ambience. The whole album functions together as an entity, yet a few choruses and riffs do climb up to and stay better in your head. On occasions a few songs hold within some first-class Old School-ish groove which actually is a nice spice on top of the meat-grinder.
The end product is simply one of the best Finnish Old School Thrash/Death Metal albums made in a long time. For a fan of the genre "Ne, joista ei puhuta" is an album you do not want to miss.
8,5 / 10
