Tantalize is the name of a collaborative recording project from Finland helmed by songwriter Samu Puuronen. It began in 2015 and has been releasing original music ever since. Tantalize has a strong rock/metal component but takes a no-genres approach to songwriting. Puuronen has a background in classical piano and this allows him to mix his metal with many outside influences. He displays a deep grasp of modern pop and melodic rock that creates striking contrasts with heavy guitars.
Puuronen handles the keys, guitars, production and songwriting duties for Tantalize and collaborates with outside artists on the rest. This adds to the ever-shifting soundscape of his tracks. The goal is pouring out real emotion into songs that are dark, gritty, upbeat, driving and melodic. There are songs to dance to, cry to and bang your head to.
