Kenziner

Kenziner is a band/project featuring Finnish guitar wunderkind Jarno Keskinen. Two albums were released in quick succession in 1998 and 1999, with a lineup consisting largely of Americans that may or may not have been hired guns, and those albums were a showcase for Keskinen's flashy, neoclassical guitarwork, which inevitably invites comparisons to Yngwie Malmsteen. The project broke up soon after that second album, possibly due to a dispute with the record label, with Keskinen eventually recruiting an all-new lineup in his home country in 2012 and putting Kenziner back in action.

Recent album: Phoenix, released on June 26, 2020.
