Lähiöbotox joins Ranka – New Single ’Ei toivoa’ Out Today

We are stoked to welcome Lähiöbotox to Ranka!

Lähiöbotox is a six-piece metal group hailing from Roihupelto, East Helsinki delivering their unique approach to metal: Lähiöbotox combines heavy metal riffs to rap vocals with a two-vocalist setup – in Finnish 🇫🇮 The band quickly rose on the radar of the Finnish metal scene in 2020 after releasing their debut album ’Rikkinäinen Suomi’. The debut was welcomed with praising reviews bringing them the Metal Album of the Year and the Newcomer of the Year Emma nominations. In 2022 the band released their second album ’Itä-Metal’, which took them on tour around Finland as well as opening for no other than Nightwish at their two special stadium shows in Finland. 

Even though this is a new collaboration, Ranka’s Riku actually goes way back with the guitarist of the band Harto Haukkaluoma:

”We started with Harto back in 1993 with the band The Astronuts. After that came Heaven ’N’ Hell, whose debut has to be one of the most underrated Finnish rock albums of all time. The next Lähiöbotox album will be anything but underrated”, Riku states. 

The band is as excited as we are to star working together: 

”We strongly believe that Ranka is THE one and only label for Lähiöbotox. Riku and Harto have a long history together and this is something that makes us confident in co-operation. We really cannot wait to release new material to our fans around the world!”

And the first taste of the new material has already arrived: New single EI TOIVOA is streaming NOW!
