Third album on its way!! Four songs are almost done. Their plan is to get bigger and find a new direction. They want to distance themselves from black ’n’ roll because many times it’s associated with black metal. Their lyrics are very different from black metal, pagan metal is something they’re striving for.
What is the difference between the two first albums?
- The latter is much gloomier. In principle, the first album is a demo collection, while the second album has more structure and is also musically more unified. In the second album’s booklet, there’s a story of how it was born, you can read it from the album cover! All of the songs are written and recorded in the exact same order as they appear in the album. Every song has its own mood and follows a storyline that you can read from the album cover!
The storyline and how it has successfully included all the song titles in the story simultaneously describing an angry Finnish man surrounded in his melancholic existence shows the creativity these men have put into their work. You can interpret it in your own way and find interesting points in the text. Jankkari is indeed full of ideas when he writes his lyrics! All of the lyrics are in Finnish, but maybe you can use Google translate and lose half of the meaning anyway. It only does justice in the original language!
Have you combined different musical genres in your music?
- Once a music critic was puzzled over our album. He couldn’t figure out exactly what kind of music, because there was a mix of different things, like combining different metal music and rock. What music one has been listening to influences the songs that are written. Recently Jankkari has listened to folk metal, you might expect some hints of that in the album too.
Favourite song from your albums?
- Mieleen haudattu we enjoy playing the most and the music video has been released! Also, many others like Täsmäisku is really nice and our gigs hit off nicely with it as a starting track.
