INFESTER “To the Depths, in Degradation” death metal re-release review and youtube stream

Re-releases of “best kept secret” type of old bands, usually package attractively mediocre quality content using 80’s/90’s nostalgia and vinyl fetishism. Even when the music is good, most such bands were mere clones back at the day, therefore their (re-) Read more

Kuolemanlaakso : ‘Tulijoutsen’ Album Review

Posted on by Vassago in black metal, Death Metal, Doom Metal, Music | Leave a comment

The highly acclaimed Finnish death doomsters return with their brand new album (second full length release following their debut “Uljas uusi maailma” in 2012)  titled “Tulijoutsen“. Produced once again by the TriptykonTulijoutsen-album-cover and Dark Fortress guitarist V. Santura, Kuolemanlaakso’s new album “Tulijoutsen” aim is to push the band into a new territory by combining different music genres such as death, doom and gothic/atmospheric metal with a melancholic touch which is present throughout (almost) the whole album. Their debut album, ‘Uljas Uusi Maailma’ was a good introduction to the scene but with ‘Tulijoutsen’ the aim is clearly to push themselves to a different level and reach audiences – which I will dare to say – who like bands such as from the Symphonic death metalers Tristania to the Gothic metal legends Moonspell.

Last May we had a small chat with John  about “111112”, their second full-length demo tape released in late 2012, also making the point about the band and finding out more concerning their unorthodox and enigmatic metal.
