Simulacrum is a progressive metal band from Turku, Finland. It originally started off as a high school band founded 12 years ago by the composer/keyboard player Christian ”Chrism” Pulkkinen. The original line-up had already 3 members of the current one; Chrism, his little brother Nicholas Pulkkinen (guitar) and Olli Hakala (bass). The name Simulacrum was adopted a few years after and the band found a singer, Niklas Broman to tackle the complex material at hand. On the album the drums were played by Markus Wallasvaara, who played in the band between 2003-2011. Since then, the band has found a young virtuoso Samuel Hildén to manage the drum set. Simulacrum’s music is progressive metal with an distinct sound and atmosphere. Even though some musical influences are audible here and there, the originality is unchallenged by many in the same genre.
