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.
