Contemporary Dead Finnish Music Ensemble

CDFME is a musical community with sole purpose to bring good music to the world. The Ensemble was born in a year 2000 out of the need to bring back some of the more ambitious and progressive music that had to go literally underground in the 1980’s and -90’s. We released our first album ”Ideal Standards Vol. 1” in 2004 and the anticipated follower ”Land of Hope” in 2009. Both were well-received and got good reviews. “Dark Matters” (2014) is a natural continuation and evolution from that. It is an ambitious concept album in the original progrock tradition without getting stuck to it. The musicians are seasoned professionals and share the same motto: ”Let’s rock while making MUSIC!” One way to describe our music is to imagine a heavy space battleship that is loaded with white lilies and red roses and in place of the engines there are colossal flocks of hummingbirds. Heavy solid bottom, eclectic middle ground and delicately powerful top make this band strong and personal sounding. The music is hard-hitting, intensive symphonic rock but dynamic, leaving lots of room for air and elegance. The songs are melodic and cinematic, progressive without being pompous in a needless manner.
