in short [by jÖrG]
formed in helsinki / finland in 1986, waltari has been one of the most innovative bands since then. highly talented musicians with a no-attitude attitude, hard to handle for a very image-orientated mainstream music business.
starting as an 80s rock band with some punk roots, they changed to a more metal style with funky elements as one of the first real crossover bands in the early 90s. dancefloor rhythm joined metal through the years as well as symphonic influences and so waltari always followed their own unique style instead of swimming in the stream. and there has not been a single year since 1991 without a new released cd.
if you want to know what waltari is about - visit a live show. that's simply the best way to get the feeling.
