Finnish heavy metal group Woundstripe releases new EP

Finnish 2017 founded heavy metal band Woundstripe has released their debut EP “Primis”.

The mini album was recorded at Kuopio Rock Academy studios by Tupi Tuomainen who has worked also with bands like Tarot, Wintersun and Sonata Arctica. It is produced by Sakari Hietala from Tarot and Euge Valovirta from Cyhra. Valovirta also mastered the EP.

Woundstripe doesn’t like to categorize their sound too strictly but their music has been compared to bands like Alice in Chains, Thin Lizzy and Pantera. From this background the band creates their hard grooving heavy metal sound. “The EP has some raw sounds and catchy rhythms” the band describes their debut EP. “Lyrics leads the listener towards some quite gloomy state of mind.”

Listen to the EP:

The current line-up was formed in 2019. Woundstripe has played live shows in Finnish festivals like Kuopio Rock and Metallivuori. And they have also toured in Russia. “Our objective is to go as far as it’s possible and of course: play as much live shows as it’s possible!” the band tells about their future plans.
