This is a progressive rock trio from Finland, originally released in 1971. Their album comprised bluesy progressive rock with electric guitar and organ to the fore and sung in English. Their sound is typical of the Scandinavian stuff of the time being somewhat influenced by that Nordic folk sound, but also they had a heavy blues base to their music. The main instrument used is the Hammond organ, as there is lot's of manic playing. There is also some nice guitar.

I have this album, from a longer time..
Very cool album hard-progressive group from Finland, they recorded a demo, which they sent to Love Records.
that recorded once for the same record label (Love Records) what Wigwam and Tasavallan Presidentti.
The album is one blend of progressive rock and hard rock blues with an excellent organ Hammond and guitar player.
Btw:I wonder just why in the description is given that this is a trio ...from what I know it is a quartet
