But before that, the band has a tiny little something for you: A brand new lyric video for the track “Captain Clock” off of their latest album King Of Everything! Enjoy the stunning Groove Metal clip Here.

Says the band:
With this video we wanted to make people pay more attention at our lyrics and ideas we put into it. A lot of messages we have are very important and even private. Captain Cloack is a sort of a manifest about our own lives, because we are constantly on a rush and it seems there is always a lack of time.

The upcoming “Against the Stream” tour in March, April and May will be something extraordinary. We will play several songs from the previous album “Cloud Factory”, and one of them is “Bad Water” which we performed live only once in Kiev. Moreover we have made several changes in other old songs, to make them sound even better. And of course we will play KING OF EVERYTHING! We cannot wait when we finally set off on the road.

REVIEW: Wolfheart – Tyhjyys


Wolfheart – Tyhjyys 

Review by Ekaterina K. / Dark Art Conspiracy

unnamed-1

Wolfheart releases its albums with stable pause, and distinguishes by their productive leader Tuomas Saukkonen, which has music career long before and include different music projects.

And this time, his main band Wolfheart offers a new album called “Tyhjyys”, which means “Empty” or “Emptiness”. So, let’s dive into this Finnish Emptiness.

Diving takes starts with melancholiac acoustic guitar turning into freezing riffs in “Shores of Lake” with shouts. “Boneyard” with firm Wolfheart sound and kind of a “hit” riffs, especially the first one, was right chosen for single and keeps exact its place in song order. It’s worth to mention that none of songs sounds out of place, everything is well placed in a right time. From this point, “Tyhjyys” doesn’t differ from previous band’s works – “Winterborn” and “Shadow world” – both of them have its well-made song order.

However, in some atmospheric elements appear – synth choir and piano parts in “World on Fire” for instance, which gives some “volume” to guitar lines. Then going deeper in winter emptiness with “The Flood” and its melancholic sounds of downtuned acoustic guitar, which turns then into so-“Wolfheartish” epic riffs with orchestra elements shining in between, creating an atmosphere of fatigue and a bit of nostalgia.

The Rift” and “Call of the Winter” are continuing this tendency with orchestra lines flying together with instrumental ones and acoustic guitar interludes between riffs, bass line and intense drum ornament.

Dead White” is differs from other songs on this album by quite fast and at the same time melodic rhythm, which didn’t slow its way during the whole song. The final part is “Tyhjyys” with Finnish lyrics, which echoes with the closure song of “Shadow World” – “Veri”.

Tyhjyys is the perfect clothing to this album of the same name – freezing emptiness has reached out its arm and took the listener to its freezing realm. Nothing exceptionally original or innovative, but still very catchy and atmospheric.

Wolfheart is still keeping the level and their own niche of melodic death metal, or winter metal, hehe.  Their third album proved it.

Score: 5/5
