Artist details


Bio / info
Trusties started as a song writing collaboration between Matti Ylilauri (vocals) and Marko “Oikku” Oikarinen (guitar). Getting Ville Veijalainen (bass) on board allowed the trio to begin exploring less common rhythmic and harmonic territory as documented on their 1997 all acoustic debut CD Growing Smaller. The band played gigs all around Finland as a three-piece acoustic band. The songs on the second album We Just Want to Rule the World (2003) feature a wide palette of styles mixing world music and thrash metal into the traditional progressive rock vocabulary. Janne Ervelius (drums) and Ari “Suti” Sutinen (guitar/keys) were added at that time.
