Kohti Tuhoa are a band from Finland that plays a mixture of crust and hardcore punk and this is a review of their 2016 album "Rutinin Orja" which was released on July 29th by Southern Lord.
A very distorted amp sound starts off the album along with some crust style guitars, aggressive screaming female vocals and d beats while the solos and leads have somewhat of a melodic style to them and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful and most of t he songs are very short in length.
You can hear the heaviness of metal in the music while the music is more focused on a raw style of punk that has a lot of 80's and 90's influences while sounding very modern at the same time and you can also hear a great amount of both Swedish and Japanese influences throughout the recording and all of the songs stick to a very fast and heavy musical direction.
Kohti Tuhoa plays a style of crust punk that goes back to the early days of the genre while also updating the sound for the modern days, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics are written in Finnish and cover violent and angry themes.
In my opinion Kohti Tuhoa are a very great sounding crust punk band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Orja" "Voittojen Maksimointi" "Kujanjuoksu" and "Liha Palaa". 8 out of 10.
