Kepa Lehtinen – Helsinki in November Song Review – Metalhead Community

Today we are featuring another promising movie soundtrack composer; Kepa Lehtinen, from Helsinki, Finland. We have reviewed his impressive composition; Helsinki in November, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.

Kepa Lehtinen is a unique name, a movie soundtrack composer I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about two weeks ago with this very song; Helsinki in November, off from his latest release with the same title, which was released on 2019. I have always been a big fan of dramatic and dark movie soundtracks. Grew up listening to composers such as Hans Zimmer, Jeff van Dyck, and John Williams. And I am delighted to discover another promising classical movie soundtrack composer who has a similar kind of taste with me. It certainly is a privilege for me to be writing here about Kepa’s piece of art.

The first thing that caught my full attention was the strong mysterious atmosphere on this composition. It immediately makes you think of that specific feeling in fall. You naturally feel more emotional than usual along with the vibe of nature. Kepa’s story begins with sentences that easily pulls the listener into its world. Takes them to a rainy November evening in Helsinki, where you feel filled up with this tense feeling from the old and beautiful structures that surrounds you.

The important thing about Kepa besides his powerful musical ideas and compositions, he has delicately injected quite a unique instrument to his specific music style; theremin. I was mentioning about the importance of being an authentic artist in some of my previous articles. In this matter, theremin has become his deadliest weapon and separated Kepa from the thousands of other classical/movie soundtrack compositors. With all respect, I know from my own experience that the classical musicians are probably the most closed-minded people among all genres. Thus, Kepa has earned our respects with his bravery and also understanding of music.

There’s usually not much to say about the technical side of classical music records. It has to have the top standards. Period. As you can also hear on our example, everything was recorded, balanced and produced very professionally. You can easily hear every single touch on the piano, feel the differences in the energy, in the mood and so on. Everything is in great harmony which makes the piece of work shine and successfully channels the feeling to the listener.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by Kepa Lehtinen’s musical style. I am sure everybody who will enter his dark and moody world once won’t be able to forget his name again.
