VUOHI (Finnish for GOAT) is a Finnish grindcore band with influences from primitive thrash, black and death metal in general.
The whole idea of VUOHI was born somewhere in summer 2002. Veri had thought about forming a grindcore band and asked if Luoti was interested in becoming a guitarist of that band. Luoti joined and the era of VUOHI got started.
The beginning was silent. Days, weeks and months passed. Few songs were written but nothing really happened until 2004. The band began to rehearse more seriously and the target was to made the first demo recording for VUOHI. However, due to the fact that they both lived in different cities, things still moved on with not so huge volume.
Also during the same year Saha took part for the rehearsals first time. He bagan to write lyrics for Vuohi, took part for practising and almost after two years, during 2006 he officially joined the band. Shortly after that Vuohi horde became as complete as it can be when Raaka joined the band. Firstly it was planned that Raaka would only play bass on the demo as a session member, but soon it was realized that he must be a part of Vuohi.
Recording sessions began during 2006, but after the demo was recorded and mixed it was decided that it must be done again. It just didn't sound good enough. So, the whole thing was done twice.
Finally, in the July of 2007 the first demo of VUOHI, titled TOTAL NOISE CHAOS saw the moonlight. The birth was hard and long, but it was over. It took seven (six of them available on this site) hateful and melancholic songs and over 12 minutes. Soon after the release of the demo Vuohi played it's first gig in Oulu, Finland and retired for six months.
At this point of the story VUOHI is has released its second demo. It is a chrystal clear fact that this attack is MUCH more primitive, hateful, depressing, deeper, stronger, devilish and wise than the first one.
Step two of the Metamorphosis.
It is time. To prepare for war. To rise. To feel and to live enlightment. To crush, destroy and to create the new kingdom.
The Era of Goat has risen! ALL HAIL THE GOAT! LET THE WEAK ONES MELT UNDER YOUR HOOFS!!
