Eläkeläiset - the finest Metal Polka

Eläkeläiset: (The pensioners)


True Story...


Quotation Eläkeläiset: "Anyway...the most of us are Russians!"


Eläkeläiset (Kristian, Lassi, Martti, Onni, Ilmari, and Tomi) inspire more and more people all over the whole world. But these musicians are no trendsetters - no value on cultivated Sound, polished live shows or even an exterior appearance.


It´s their strange Humppa music and chaotic performance. Eläkeläiset play something like Finnish polka, faster, slower, always introduced from a short and hard drum solo which is perfect for Stage diving.
