Höyry-kone


Höyry-Kone was a Finnish band that emerged in the mid-1990s and released two albums. Their music combines the avant-garde with hard rock and metal, featuring extensive use of the cello and violin in addition to more traditional instruments such as guitar, drums and bass. The band's structure resembles a double power trio at first, except that violin/cello replace the second bass. Perhaps the defining factor of the band's sound, however, is Topi Lehtipuu's operatic voice. Read more on Last.fm

Perhaps the defining factor of the band's sound, however, is Topi Lehtipuu's operatic voice.

He is currently a regular performer at the Opera of Paris and is one of the most sought after lyrical tenors in the world. The band was friendly with fellow proggers Anekdoten. After their sophomore effort, the band broke up, but several of the members went on to form the instrumental Alamaailman Vasarat, who play a jazzy mix of death metal and klezmer, among other things. The band's name means Steam Engine.
