Song dissection: Universal constructor

This is Unzyme’s only released instrumental track. There are many unreleased instrumentals on my hard drive, waiting for a suitable opportunity to get released. Override was supposed to start off with an instrumental piece, which was heavily influenced by Röyksopp, but the song never got finished. I might still release that at some point.

The impact of The Cranberries and Dolores O’Riordan on Unzyme’s music

When I first heard Zombie by The Cranberries in mid-nineties, it got stuck in my head for months. Despite of falling in love with the song, I didn’t immediately become a fan, because the rest of their songs didn’t really resemble Zombie.

Seta Beach Party – an experiment report

There are some things in the pop star checklist, that feel exceptionally good to get checked. One of them is “people dancing naked to your song”. Our latest experiment at the traditional beach party of Jyväskylä’s sexual equality organization was a great experience in many ways, including a wildly screaming audience and the naked women … Read more

Synapsi 2014 with Hocico – an experiment report

This is a post from the perspective of me, Ville (the drum guy), on our two gigs in Synapsi with Hocico in August 2014. The diary includes lots of technical stuff, which might be out of the interest-range of many people – all the technical mumbojumbo is therefore written in italic. Unzyme played at Synapsi for the … Read more
