                Pyhä Kuolema is a solo project of Mikko Pöyhönen. It was founded a while after the neofolk-duo Tuhat Kuolemaa Sekunnissa decided to quit. The ruins of Tuhat Kuolemaa Sekunnissa left behind were still smoking when something new, beautiful and fresh started already grow from there. The death of the duo Tuhat Kuolemaa Sekunnissa was also the birth of Pyhä Kuolema - a birth of  an extremely intimate, emotional, personal, and spiritual solo-project.
                Traditional to the bone, but still clearly finding it’s own sound despite the classic  ”man+guitar” approach, Pyhä Kuolema debut album ”Saavun vaikken kulkisi” brings forth a dozen of atmospheric, national romantic, extremely emotional and personal songs sung in Finnish. The style of playing and singing varies from solemn ritualistic neofolk-songs to troubadur-like playful approach to traditional folk.                
                Despite the fact that he is also a quarter of the neofolk-lounge band MAA, and half of the gloomy neofolk and freezing ritual music duo Tervahäät, he is still driven by so such a great urge to create, that new songs for Pyhä Kuolema are found frequently. He composed, sung, played, recorded and mixed the whole album by himself, giving it the intimate touch and manages the handling of the double edged sword that this kind of folk can be – the  sometimes even rough and stripped down output with no gimmicks is this time succesfully shaking hands with the alluring soft intensity.
