Vinide consists of Elmeri Kinnunen – Vocals/Guitar, Mikko Kähkönen – Guitar, Heikki Polvinen – Keyboards & Jaakko Juntunen – Drums. It was Elmeri who came up with the idea of “Reveal” being a concept album. Not only did he record, mix and produce this fantastic album, but composed the pieces in collaboration with guitarist Mikko Kähkönen and keyboard player Heikki Polvinen ”Reveal” is a science fiction story about a large information technology company OMEGA and a former employee who finds himself locked in a mental asylym and sentenced to death. After he escapes the asylum he starts to find out what is really going on and what is the biggest interest of OMEGA’s artificial intelligence project.
