Up and coming rock-act Rylos has released it’s much anticipated second album called ‘Planet’. The album is a follow-up to their debut ‘Game Theory’ which was released last year. A lot has happened over the past year: numerous gigs, changes in line-up, Game Theory´s release in China etc. However probably the biggest event was when young super-talented drummer Misca Muhli, who has been blind all his life, joined the band. Misca is a very good example of what you can achieve when you firmly believe in your dreams and are ready to do some real hard work.
With their forthcoming album Rylos also resurrects singer Mikko Heino‘s former band Doodah’s material: on album you can find 1996 cult classics ‘Posthuman Power Station’ and ‘Into the Gutter’. It has also happened that former Doodah guitarist-composer Mikko Hämäläinen has joined Rylos´ background bunch as a reinforcement. Hämäläinen has made his contribution to ‘Planet’ album in a form of writing lyrics and making arrangements to new material for example song ‘My Capricious Heart’. Heino and Hämäläinen have also composed material ready for the third Rylos album, which is due to be released at the end of 2018. That particular concept album will be called ‘Solarworks’ and it tells a story about adventures in time, space and mind…
Rylos´ mascot is (as a homage to Iron Maiden’s Eddie) a living carrot named Ned the Carrot, who ventures as a cartoon character in Esa Ahlqvist’s comic and also alive on stage!
‘Planet’ is somewhat heavier and more epic than the debut album but you can still hear the characteristics of that unique Rylos-sound. This album will bring out both deep emotional and also angry aggressive sides of Rylos and that really crystallizes things into gold.
