A month's worth of reasons to vote for Helsinki in 2017, part 18

bannakaffalatta, short
You know the drill: Finnish metal. Every day in June. For Helsinki in 2017. Longer explanation here.

Demilich released a single album in the early nineties and then promptly disbanded. The album, Nespithe, quietly became a well-regarded underground classic for three reasons:
1) An unusual level of technical guitar proficiency for a death metal band of the time. (These days, tech death bands are a dime a dozen, but I think it was rarer then.)
2) Ridiculous song titles.
3) The singer's highly distinctive style of death growl, which is more of a...death burp? It works in context.

Anyway, Demilich have recently reformed and are working on a second album. I got to see them live recently at what I believe was their first-ever performance in the U.S. They were clearly adorably flummoxed at how well their performance was received. Here's a picture of the band:

Anyway, this song is called "The Putrefying Road in the Nineteenth Extremity (...Somewhere Inside the Bowels of Endlessness...)". I meant what I said about ridiculous song titles.
