Vocalist Gerre stated:
“At the moment I have 7 songs ready! It’s a great pleasure to work with Martin for the very first time! He really kicks my ass, so I have a lot of work! So I really look forward to a great result to celebrate our 35th birthday in a reasonable way!
Senile with style!”

Finnish messengers of death, Hautajaisyö released a new single!

Finnish messengers of death, Hautajaisyö released a new single!

From the depths of Finnish melancholy and messenger of death Hautajaisyö  (Funeral Night) released a new single on 19.01.2017 and its called “Unohdetut” (the forgotten). This song is the most melodic song they have ever played and the two guitarists play melodic and brutal riffs like never before. With the normal low growling vocals comes more “heavy metal” style clean vocals done by Tomas Ahlroos from Omniversum band. Same man were featuring in the first Hautajaisyö album. Band’s melancholy thrash & melodic death metal has a unique taste in them. Finnish sung vocals are not traditional death metal lyrics. Songs are hard and brutal, but still melodic in many ways. Second song in the single is a cover song from a Finnish hard rock band “Timo Rautiainen & Trio Niskalaukaus”  and the long song title mean “62”. Hautajaisyö is making its second album as we speak and the release is scheduled later this year.

WINTERSUN – reveal track list and concept of  “The Forest Seasons”



Last week, the Finnish kings of epic melodic death, WINTERSUN, unveiled the title of their third studio album »The Forest Seasons« that will see the light of day in 2017 via Nuclear Blast. The new release will be a full-length album of 53 minutes featuring a brand new concept that band leader and mastermind Jari Mäenpää now reveals, together with the complete track list:

WINTERSUN – »The Forest Seasons«

Yes, you guessed it! This album is our version of Vivaldi’s ‘The Four Seasons’, but it hasn’t got anything to do with Vivaldi musically or with classical music. It is 100% original and solid Wintersun material! It is something new and different. Let’s just say it has a bit more darker tone overall… 😉
