Instead of decomposing in the graveyard of the genre-locked metal acts, Affection has crown to create a unique and diversified sound of their own. Hailing from Helsinki, Finland since 2013, this power engine keeps blazing by combining the strengths and different backgrounds of each member of the band, including flavours from metal and hard rock all the way to the vibes of punk & hardcore. Does it work? Yes it does. Hear it for yourself.
All the elements have come together naturally with a certain depth and relentless attitude. “While our upcoming album consists of quite a wide range of various ingredients, they all have their places in there. The backbone of our music hasn’t changed either. There are melodies and energy that tell you something meaningful, not to mention the lyrics“, vocalist Andy H.C. sums up.
The Self-Titled debut EP was released back in 2014. Soon after there were changes in the line-up when Ollie (guitar) and Rick (bass) joined in. This pushed the band to a totally new level, and in 2015 Affection was ready for the road. There were a dozen of gigs and soon the band came to be known for their energetic and explosive live shows.
In 2016 it was time to concentrate on the new material. The band took also a huge step forward by building up a studio environment to self-produce their upcoming records. Things got set up, and now in March 2017 Affection is releasing their new single “Thousand Mirrors” with music video. The full-length album is also on its way, and will be released later this year.
