Mustan Kuun Lapset to release compilation album including the band’s 1990s releases


The compilation CD “Ei sävyjä pimeässä – The complete 90s collection” includes all of the MUSTAN KUUN LAPSET‘s ’90s rare and hard to get material in their original but remastered versions. Album will be released on October 29th, 2021. 

Listen to a single track “Laulu Mustan Variksen”:







“…KUNNES LOPPUU YÖ” demo cassette (tracks 1-3) was recorded and mixed by Heikki Peltonen at Akaan MR-studio in Viiala, Finland, 1996. “VARJOMAA” demo cassette (tracks 4-8) was recorded at Studio Audio-Artworks in Lahti, Finland 1997. MKL’s flagship of the ’90s, the first recording on the CD format, “PROLOGI” EP (tracks 9-12) was recorded in the same studio a year later with Ville Vartiainen. Two versions of the album were released; 1998 self-released version, and 1999 Italian Nocturnal Music´s version with the black cover and one extra bonus track for the European market. The solemnly named “UUSI SUOMALAINEN BLACK METAL TULOKAS” split-cd was recorded and mixed with the Danish Lars B. Janson at the end of the millennium 1999. The studio was still Audio-Artworks, Lahti.

And there´s more to come; the cherry on the top of the cake is the history of the band’s first decade, compiled by journalist Jasmin Vahtera (included in the CD booklet).

The original line-up of the band included Kari Kinnunen (bass, 1993-2003), Pete “Speedu” Tamminen (guitar & growl, 1993-2007), Mikko Hautala (drums, 1993-2017), and Pete Lehtinen (vocals, guitar & keyboards, 1993- ) who is still on the band and its only original member.
