The Finnish power trio Kaleidobolt creates a wall of progressive angst that will shock you if you’re not ready for it. They groove, grind, and wail – all while playing tightly manicured, complex compositions. The music of Kaleidobolt is as interesting and unique as it is heavy and punishing. Bassist Marco Menestrina joins the Dr. Music podcast to discuss the band’s latest record, This One Simple Trick. He also talks about the band’s influences, their new drummer Mårten Gustafsson, and the making of the video for the first single, “I Should Be Running”.

Hello everyone! My name is Scott Itter, but some know me as Dr. Music. I am a music journalist and photographer out of the Chicagoland area, and I have been in practice for over 20 years. I grew up in the 70’s with two big brothers that showed me all kinds of rock and roll. As I grew older I ventured out into different genres like jazz, funk, folk, and whatever else I could wrap my ears around. As I read every liner note and every Circus and Hit Parader like they were the Old and New Testament, I came to realize that I just love sound and appreciate all the people that create it.
I later became a stay-at-home dad and started honing my writing and photography skills to keep my mind from turning into mashed peas. My kids are now adults, my mind is only slightly mushy, and I am thrilled to have the honor of presenting my work to you!
