PYHÄ KUOLEMA – Uusi panssaroitu Suomi, LP
The third album of this vital act "Uusi panssaroitu Suomi" (The new armored Finland) draws another full chapter in Finnish folk & neofolk with vigorous blood. Expect more varied instrumentation and approach, with the usual fingerprint of Finnish spirit. Eerie synths and robust percussions are brought to accompany the well known style of mournful vocals and masterful guitarwork. The album seeps the war trauma of the artists' family as well as very cruel and sometimes even humorous introspection. Never hiding or shunning away from difficult or dangerous topics he also digs deep in the national spirit of Finland, with all it's ugly scars, smiling faces, shattered bones and beautiful sunsets. This is a true milestone on the path of re-awakening of the golden age of Finnish spirit, Finnish art and Finnish man.
