Anyone here familiar with these lads from Finland? Their album, Northern Savonian Black Metal, is a winner and gets regular plays over here. Aggressive but incredibly melodic/triumphant BM from Finland. It has a far right leaning that will naturally be divisive but, man, it's some of the catchiest black metal I've heard recently. It's got quite a punk streak in places that really shines through in the sheer spite of delivery.

Cool band alright, rickety and triumphant which is a weird combo but works well for them. Love their logo with the rooster-fish, typical Finnish sense of humour.

Rickety is a good way to describe them alright. Rooster fish? I don't get the reference but the artwork is cool.

A local delicacy it seems.

I must admit that I don't share your enthusiasm. They have all the elements in which I would normal want in that style but on first spin I just found it all a bit boring to be honest.

It's suppose to be some sort of Finnish joke that refers to Savonians people.

I enjoyed the demo but the full length is even better. Patiently awaiting the vinyl repress. I have the logo tank top in white if anyone is interested in buying it because I would prefer the black one which of course was released two weeks after I ordered the white one it's brand and has never been worn.

This came up next on my YouTube play list. What an album. Darker Than Black have their finger on the pulse lately.
