A word from the artist: Nicumo is a melodic rock/metal band from Ylivieska, Finland. The band was founded in 2007 by a couple of friends. Fairly soon the band began to make their own songs by putting the guitarists’ song ideas to good use. During the first couple of years the band went without a name and invested in practising and making songs.
The line-up of the band changed frequently until 2010, and as the line-up regularized, their musical style, too, reached its best form. In the same year, the band started to go by the name of Nicumo.
Nicumo has self-released two EPs: “Close Our Eyes For Good” and “Scars & Glassy Eyes”. Both of them have been received well both in reviews and among listeners. Along with the good feedback from their gigs, this has encouraged Nicumo to compose and practise new songs for their first album, The End of Silence.
The album was recorded and mixed by Kalle Keskikuru mainly at his studios in Virrat, Finland, and mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studio in Örebro, Sweden. Keskikuru also participated in the production of the album with the band. The whole process took about six months, starting in August 2012 and ending in early February 2013. The release date of the album was March 15th in Finland, and April 19th internationally. The album contains 10 melodic and immersive songs which will give a powerful experience to the listeners. The record label Inverse Records is a partner in releasing and distributing the album. On the week 14/2013 the album reached the 24th place on the official Finnish album chart and 9th place on Rumba magazine’s album chart.
At the moment, Nicumo is mainly focusing on touring and promoting their debut album. Based on good reviews, Facebook likes and contacts, it has been a pleasure to the band to see that their music has reached people from all over the world. This is a very good situation to continue from!
