Fonal Records releases the new Eleanoora Rosenholm album Hyväile minua pimeä tähti (tl. 'Caress Me, Dark Star'). A project begun by Noora Tommila, Pasi Salmi and Mika Rättö (better known as a core member of experimental psychedelic rock oufit Circle), Eleanoora Rosenholm is ostensibly a persona created by the band, which narrates the dramatic and disturbed odyssey of a suburban housewife.
The third installment is an even gloomier prospect (if possible) than before: this time the protagonist, housewife serial killer Eleanoora escapes to the heart and the city of a dark star.
Although musically in a similar vein to previous albums Vainajan muotokuva (2007) and Älä kysy kuolleilta, he sanoivat (2008), the sound of HMPT is even more dramatic, expansive and nuanced.
