Alouv by Vuola: Album Review
The Finnish rockstar Vuola is out with his hard and heavy psychedelic debut album Alouv. Inspired by the likes of Pink Floyd, Led Zappelin and Boston, this meticulous album is heavy, esoteric and enchanting.
Vuola has been involved with recording and gigging with countless bands for over a decade now and the finesse he has gathered over the years announces its presence in every note of this five track album. The music, which was ignited and awakened by the artist’s vision of harmony and optimism, love and friendship, peace and passion, will surely enchant the listeners. The flawless transitions from heavy to atmospheric tranquility, the instrumental complexity, the poetic lyrics and the diverse vocal style all complement each other like a compelling harmony. With the lyrical theme of beauty of nature, love and loss, the meaning of life, ebb and flow of joy and sorrow, life and death, this multidimensional album can be dubbed as one longhand poem.
To summarize the album, there’s a shimmer in darkness, a touch in space, beauty in distortion, and aspiration in despair. Given the amount of attention to detail this album has, it is truly baffling how Vuola managed to record the whole thing in just two weeks– this only goes to show the brilliance of the artist. He has also mentioned all proceeds of the album will go to the victims of the ongoing war in Ukraine via Unicef.
