TAKALAITON Blazes Forward with Debut Single 'Rip N’ Burn' from Upcoming Album 'Mindfection'
Finnish thrash metal stalwarts TAKALAITON are set to take the music scene by storm with their debut album 'Mindfection', scheduled for release on July 28th, 2023, via Rockshots Records. This highly anticipated album is crafted under the expert supervision of renowned producer Teemu Aalto, known for his work with Omnium Gatherum and Insomnium.
TAKALAITON has set the stage on fire by releasing the first single, 'Rip N’ Burn' from the upcoming album. Accompanied by a music video, this single is poised to bring out a mosh pit frenzy among fans.
The band shared their excitement, saying: 'This is our first new music out after 3 years of silence for us and this one is a total BOMB. We know that this is the type of stuff that our awesome fans love. Straight up fast beating in your face!'
Emerging from the northern reaches of Finland, TAKALAITON is renowned for their high-octane melodic groove thrash attitude. Their live performances radiate energy, leaving fans with unforgettable experiences filled with high-speed rhythm, bone-crushing grooves, and memorable melodies inspired by the darkness of the far-north. The band's bold lyrical style, alternating between Finnish and English, is a significant part of their unique appeal.
TAKALAITON's philosophy of 'break the rules, exceed all limits' stems from their name, translated from a Finnish baseball term meaning 'swing the ball over the borders'. This approach has led them to victory in the 'Heavy Metal Heart 11', a National Music Contest in Finland. TAKALAITON is set to build on this success and the momentum of their 2019 double EP 'SisuKastraatio I & II' with the release of 'Mindfection'.
'Mindfection' explores the social constructs of modern society, critiquing the lengths to which people will go for fleeting fame. The band expressed their belief in the forthcoming album, stating, 'We think this will be the album that the TAKALAITON fans will consider a classic in the future. The well-known crushing sound and the rage are in there with the heartwarming melodies, which TAKALAITON fans are familiar with. We are absolutely psyched about the album’s release and the fact it’s coming through Rockshots Records! We spent literally everything we had when it comes to effort and money on this album and the final result turned out to be magnificent with the producer Teemu Aalto. With our great partners in Rockshots Records, we know that this album will find everybody that it has to!'
