If Finland has produced one truly relentless and ferocious artists in the last decade, it’s Noora Louhimo. Discovered for her epic rendition of the Erma Franklin/Janis Joplin hit “Piece of My Heart,” she has been the lead singer for BATTLE BEAST since Nitte Valo left in 2012. However, with the COVID-19 break in touring, Noora has been able to release the solo album of her dreams, “Eternal Wheel of Time and Space,” under the name of the NOORA LOUHIMO EXPERIENCE, to show people the other sides of her musical artistry. After being hugely impressed by the album and the livestream from earlier this year, we made the trip to her hometown of Tampere on October 27th, 2021, to see the full band perform their first-ever live show at YO-talo.
