Mannhai  


Finnish stoner rockers Mannhai were formed in 1999 by guitarist Ilkka Laaksomaa and former Amorphis bassst Olli-Pekka Laine, and by 2001 had recorded their first album, followed by Evil Under The Sun in 2002. Evil is a classic stoner rockfest, with thick meaty riffs, gritty vocals, and a general style influenced by bands such as Spiritual Beggars, Fu Manchu, and maybe a touch of later-period Entombed. Nicely done.
