Comment: Autio Valo consists of two long-running, 10 minute compositions which can be considered a part of the forest folk, the Finnish counterpart of the New Weird folk movement. It starts off with sounds as if coming out of a Sabbath of the witches. Indeed, it is magical and ominous though it will soon dissipate its rays into the soil elsewhere. In general, it is a sultry drift between improvised music, restrained noise/industrial music and folk touch thereby having similarities with such avant-garde combos from Finland as Uton, Thuoom, Kemialliset Ystävät, and Tomutonttu. Furthermore, quite nearby stand such combos as Paavoharju, Violeta Päivänkakkara, Kuupuu, Lau Nau, Islaja, Kospel Zeithorn, Anaksimadros, Keijo, and Vierivä Viiksiportieeri. At times it chimes like a depiction of creating outer space by the Lord. The music is a thoroughgoing, knee-deep psychedelic ripple. Indeed, one can perceive moments where presumably material entities are being processed to the state to turn into the living one at the next moment. Indeed, it is both dizzy and magical to devour the listener. It is an amazing album at any point.
