After the tragic death of guitarist Jaakko Jernberg in 2012, Minutian dealt with their loss with a lengthy process of writing new material. This work has now resulted in nine tracks of progressive rock music with originality and emotion.
Inwards is dedicated to the memory of Jaakko Jernberg. The album closes with ‘Redeemer’, a song he composed and wrote lyrics for. Inwards features piano arrangements by Helsinki-based composer Elias Patrikainen.
The album was mixed by Toni Kimpimäki at Redfive Studios and mastered by Ronan Chris Murphy, known for his work with King Crimson, Terry Bozzio and Ulver.
Minutian are a progressively inclined rock / metal group based in Helsinki, Finland. The band aspires to bring something fresh to the world of traditional rock rhythms. Their influences are drawn from various directions, with some of the more prominent ones from bands like King Crimson, Tool, Mastodon and Oceansize, to name but a few.
The music of Minutian is quite rhythmically oriented and odd time signatures are not frowned upon. The band originates from a three song demo by drummer Antti Ruokola with which he started looking for like-minded musicians. With the forming of the current lineup the music too has found its distinctive form.
