Unzyme to headline Jyväskylä Pride

We’re looking forward to performing at the fantastic Jyväskylä Pride party on September 9th! Showtime will be around midnight at Freetime. As usual, the Unzyme show will be electric, ecstatic, anthemic and deeply emotional. We’ll play lots of new songs and many familiar classics from Unzyme’s biomechanical pop catalogue.

Foreign agendas now available on YouTube and other music streaming services

“Foreign agendas” is a B-side from the Forensics sessions. I made a lyric video for the song, which shows varied imagery from all over the world – including abandoned mines, and the cities and art that were built out of those minerals.

The decision was not made lightly, but once it was … Read more

Ville Hoikkala departs Unzyme to focus on his academic ambitions

Unzyme’s original drummer, Ville Hoikkala, has stepped away from his beat-handling duties to be able to fully concentrate on his academic career.

Unzyme’s demands have been growing a lot lately, and this felt like the right time to face reality and … Read more

Unzyme’s fifth album mostly done

We’ve been working hard on the next Unzyme album. The work was started well before our previous album, Forensics, was released. This new chapter will deal with big themes like identity, courage, addiction, depression, friendship and transformation. There will be at least one scifi song, as is customary (we’re secretly building a scifi album on … Read more
