Pohjonen Alanko are a musical project from Finland that creates an improvisational shamanic electronic ritual with elements of dance music and this is a review of their 2018 ep "Northern Lowland" which will be released on April 20th by Svart Records.
Electronic soundscapes start off the ep along with a very satanic atmosphere while the music gets very shamanistic, tribal and ritualistic at times along with some industrial elements also being used at times and clean vocals are also added into some parts of the music.
Throat singing can also be heard briefly and its gives the music more of an ethnic feeling along with the songs also mixing in a great amount of underground dance music elements, one of the tracks is very long and epic in length as well as all of the songs sounding very different from each other.
Pohjonen Alanko plays a musical that takes dance, avant garde music and mixes it with Asian shamanistic ritual music and gives it more of a satanic touch and the production sounds very dark,
In my opinion Pohjonen Alanko are a very great sounding mixture of shamanistic ritual and dance music and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this musical project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tantere" and "Northern Lowland". 8 out of 10.
