Since its inception back in 2009, Stolen Kidneys has been spreading it’s noise-rockish
sludgy hardcore across Europe. Think of early 90’ post-hardcore bands in the vein of
Unwound and Slint downtuning their guitars and aspiring to sound as heavy as Breach or
After their final tour in Russia (2019) before the world as we knew it ceased to exist, it was
discussed that the trio would expand their horizons and seek out a fourth member to
handle vocals. That fourth member was found pretty quickly and the band started to write
and rehearse material early 2020, which would turn into the sophomore album ”Maailma
loppuu”. Maailma loppuu will be co-released on August 6th on vinyl by Kohina Records
(Finland), minoRobscuR (Germany) and Drown Within Records (Italy). The Cassette and
CD versions will be solely released by Trepanation Recordings (United Kingdom).
Maailma loppuu was recorded and mixed at Tonehaven Recording Studio in the Finnish
countryside of Lievestuore, Finland, back in August 2020 by Tom Brooke. This is not the
first time the band has decided to record here, since their debut full-length, Ruin, was also
brought to life here. Other Finnish acts such as Oranssi Pazuzu and Kairon:IRSE have
had their highly acclaimed albums recorded here. Mastering duties were handled by the
one and only Pentti Dassum of the legendary Deep Turtle.
