KYPCK: Another New Song Available For Streaming

"Chuzhoi" (English translation: Stranger), a brand new song from KYPCK ("Kursk" in the western alphabet) — the Russian-singing Finnish doom metal band featuring former SENTENCED guitarist Sami Lopakka (a.k.a. S.S. Lopakka) — can be streamed below. The track comes off the group's sophomore album, which is named after the Russian word for "lower" (pronounced "nizhe"), due on February 9 via Yellow House Recordings.

"Lower" track listing (English translations; all original titles are in Russian):

01. Gifarus
02. After
03. The Alley Of Stalin
04. Stranger
05. Felitsa
06. Rupture
07. Burlaks On The Volga
08. Brothel
09. Comrades
10. Death Waltz

The "Lower" cover art and booklet art are based on Russian photographer Aleksei Repkin's images shot in the sewage system and underground tunnels of Moscow city.

The CD will have a total running time of approximately one hour.

KYPCK's debut album, "Cherno", was completed during 2007 and was originally released through the Finnish label UHO Production in March 2008. Despite the album's crushing, doomy nature and Russian lyrics, it went straight to No. 11 on the Finnish chart.

KYPCK's lineup includes Lopakka, vocalist E. Seppänen, bassist J. T. Ylä-Rautio and renowned producer Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, APOCALYPTICA, SENTENCED, etc.), who plays drums in the band under the name K. H. M. Hiilesmaa. It was only logical for Hiilesmaa to take charge of KYPCK's heavy and (in its original sense) grinding production.

E. Seppänen lived in Russia for 2.5 years, studied in St. Petersburg and worked at the embassy in Moscow. He got his degree from Oxford, and teaches Russian part-time in Tampere, Finland. Hence, he is more than capable of singing in Russian.
