Deep Space Destructors biography
At the beginning of the year 2011 DEEP SPACE DESTRUCTORS got together in Oulu, Finland. Jani Pitkänen (bass), Petri Lassila (guitars) and Markus Pitkänen (drums) are living their mutual love for 60's and 70's progressive hard and psychedelic rock. The band have recorded three albums/EP's since then, where they added some influences from stoner and doom.

Their current album 'III' showcases a collaboration with Olli Niemitalo, who had invented the black deck, an optoelectronic instrument out of a broken vinyl player and scrapped electronics. In 2014 they also performed some gigs under the moniker Oulu Space Jam Collective.

Deep Space Destructors Psychedelic/Space Rock

3 stars The third album by the Northern Finnish space rock trio features also Olli Niemitalo on black deck (I presume it means electronics). If the second album's Art Nouveau styled cover art wasn't exactly suitable to the music, as good-looking as it is, the wild, literally head-exploding, rainbow coloured, nightmarish front picture of III is doubtlessly closer to the essence of this Psychedelic Space Rock that can be referred as heavy stoner rock too.

The opening track 'Beyond the Black Star' (the shortest of the five) is really pure and satisfying Space Rock: it has a sharp edge and rock power, but the hardness doesn't take over the spaceyness. The vocals, which to me are the weak link of this band, appear only slightly in the background and without lyrics. The next 9-minute song has a lot of those blurry, angry vocals I'm not fond of at all. Luckily the instrumentally oriented slower section starting in the middle improves the track notably.

'Cosmic Burial' has a deeply psychedelic instrumental intro, reminding me of Saucerful of Secrets era PINK FLOYD, until the heavier sound and the vocals enter. I guess one has to enjoy Heavy Rock not to be disappointed with these elements on DSD's music. 'An Ode to Indifferent Universe' is the longest track (15:12) and also the most progressive. The vocals are not so blurry, and the less-heavy playing has a spacey atmosphere. The rhythm patterns are quite variable too.

The final, Finnish-language track 'Ikuinen alku' (= Eternal Beginning) starts with a brief, preaching speech about our planet's doom. The song itself is not among the highlights. Well, I guess as a whole this one isn't clearly better than the second, even if there are stronger moments. Surely this can be recommended for friends of hard-rocking Psych/Space that don't mind unsophisticated vocals.

3 stars This aptly named space rock trio comes from Oulu, Northern Finland. They operate without a producer or a record company, but don't let that give you serious prejudices for their releases. "II" is the first one to have a length of an album - though only 38:12 - , containing four 8 to 11 -minute tracks. First off, what a great cover art and package design! The artist's name can't be found (why?) but the decorative style is influenced by Alfons Mucha and Art Nouveau. Of course it may be debatable how well that beautiful style fits into masculine guitar rock. A little minus for the lack of information texts.

'Beneath the Black Star' starts delicately with moody guitar chords; gradually the steady drum beat gets louder until the tempo slows down a bit and the heavy space rock takes off the ground, so to speak. The angry-ish, rather low vocals increase the feel of Heavy / Metal, and I don't like them myself. Thankfully the vocals are quite sparse and don't try to steal the show. There's some attempt to form powerful vocal harmonies (bassist's vocals backed up by the guitarist) which is good, even though they remain very modest.

'Deserted Planet 2078' has a relaxed, slow rhythm to start with. The bass melodies are nicely audible and the electric guitar has a pleasant bright tone. The sparse vocals are not as angry as on the opener but I don't think they much improve this track which would have worked fine as an instrumental too. 'Spacy Phantasy' has cool, psychedelic echo effects in the beginning, both on guitar and on the voice repeating "hah... ha - hah..". Later on the vocals get slightly more central, but the hazy section starting midway dives deep into spacey spychedelia and makes the track clearly more interesting than the two preceding it. The echoed guitar reappears near the end, resembling certain moments on the '2112' epic by RUSH.

'Sykli' changes into Finnish language. The esoteric lyrics could almost be by PEKKA STRENG. At first the vocals are backed by guitar only, but the atmosphere stays relatively light when the rhythm section joins the playing. But this is the longest track, so the song-oriented, lighter approach is only one side to it. The sound gets heavier and stuffier towards the end. A pity actually, since this only makes all four tracks resemble each other more. Indeed this album could have had much more variety (especially between tracks) and also more of that freshness in sound that appears only here and there. The band improved on their next album.

5 stars 2014's DSD release manages to top their wonderful previous work with some really hard and excellent space. The band shed their smoother side that was shown on "II" in favour of a rockier, more stoner sound, and it works. This sounds like being in the midst of a psycadelic explosion in slow motion. "Beyond The Black Star" will grab your attention immediately, and the album won't let go until it says all it wishes to say. Olli Niemitalo joins with a black deck, adding to the band's sound and range. And the guitar is just plain perfect the whole time. One of the years best releases, your head will explode too.

5 stars Deep Space Destructors are a Finnish space rock band with a few good tunes to share. This second outing is a wonderful trip through a take on space indebted to 35007 and some of the mores of classic rock, with singing reminiscent of Alice in Chains, only often leaning towards sounding like the vocals of a doom metal band. "Beneath The Black Star" starts off by nicely showing off their unique take on this group of influences, with a willingness to go from mellow and even atmospheric to somewhat darker and harder riffs. Each track hence then mixes up the style at least a bit, with "Spacy Phantasy" eschewing their mellow side, and the concluding track, "Sykli", leaving behind their usual English lyrics to break out their native Finnish. All in all an excellent album, with the band putting out great work early in their career. Recommended.
Thanks to rivertree for the artist addition.
