Finnish for "Parasite"

How to describe Loinen? Pretend everyone in Eyehategod played bass (with their amps turned up as loud as possible) and they had Seth Putnam's vocals dubbed onto two tracks. Incredible sludge from these Finnish gods - pounding, miserable and unbearably depressing. Sorrowfully, singer Secundus passed away in 2009 from suicide, leaving the band's future unknown. This 2005 self-titled release is a great introduction - four tracks of absolutely depressing dirge that will make you think you blew the tweeters in your speakers before you realize your ears are just ruined.
