Initiated by guitarist Atte Jääskelä in Northern Finland during 2007. After a few transformations, in 2009 the band found a definitive direction with a new line up, and began to use the name NICUMO. Incredibly strong vocals by Hannu Karppinen, lively, heavy rhythm section by Sami Kotila (bass) And Aki Pusa (drums), recognizable emotional guitar melodies with strong riffs by Atte Jääskelä and phenomenally rambling solos by Tapio Anttiroiko provides a musical mixture that is worth to hear.

After two EPs: “Close Our Eyes For Good” (2010) and “Scars & Glassy Eyes” (2011), NICUMO released their debut album The End Of Silence (2013, Inverse Records). Appropriately named debut reached a 24th place on The Official Finnish Charts on it’s first week and proved to be a critical success in all reviews published.

After the End Of Silence, NICUMO has noted in metal underground and the band has played dozes of gigs in six different countries for growing audiences. Touring has increased the band technically and musically to band which has even more to offer.

Finally, after a long creation process NICUMO published second album Storms Arise (2017, Inverse Records) 7th of July 2017. On it’s releaseweek Storms Arise reached 12th position on Finland’s Top 40 Album chart and the song “Poltergeist” reached 7th place on “Finnish 50 Most Viral” -list on Spotify.

NICUMO’s music has its roots in melodic metal, but the style today has taken many fearless sidesteps to another genres. Due the bands home region, north is the strongest unifying element you can hear in NICUMO’s music. The strength in the band’s music is versatility, from very punchy pop-rock to more progressive and even mesmerizing vibrations and all the way back to straight death metal.

“Inertia” is the third full-length album of Finnish melancholic metal act NICUMO, released on March 27th, 2020, through Inverse Records.

Aki Pusa, the drummer says:

“Inertia” continues kind of naturally from where our second album “Storms Arise” left. Atmosphere is even deeper and more intense than in previous albums. We have grown as a band during these years of course, and I believe that it can be heard on this album. Songs are more solid and thoughtful entities, composed by needs of the song. Sound-wise this album is most experimental in our discography. Saxophone and even concrete floor played with drumsticks can be heard from the album just for an example.”

The album was recorded and mixed at Joshua Music studios during 2019 by Olli Tainio and mastered by Svante Forsbäck. The cover art was designed by Hannu Karppinen.
