Origin: Helsinki, Finland  
Genres: Death Metal
Last update/review: January 27, 2002


Tenebrae is an odd Finnish band whose Hypnotech release doesn't easily slot into any genre but is vaguely in the realm of industrial mid-paced death metal. The vocals are usually given the industrial distorted treatment, resulting in a cold, stark feel. The riffs aren't quite the typical death metal, but they too are stark, sparse, and bleak. A difficult album to get into but worth a listen. An interview with leader Jussi Heikkinen implied that the band had been put to rest so that he could concentrate on his other bands, Soulgrind and Gloomy Grim.
