I wanna do a small little survery here, as I thought it would be interesting to know what fellow Kiuas fans answers are... What are your OTHER favorite bands? Ensiferum Wuthering Heights Turisas Elvenking Eluveitie Amorphis (newer stuff, believe it or not) Sonata Arctica Raintime Suidakra Adagio Moonlight Agony Hibria (no particular order) What OTHER bands got you into the metal scene and around when? Well I listened to metal when I was in high school, but that was like the Pantera era... I didn't really get into "euro" metal when I was introduced to In Flames back in 2002 and it started from there. Other bands that got me kick started at that time were Soilwork, Norther, Children of Bodom and Sonata Arctica. How and when did you get into Kiuas, and what sets Kiuas above and beyond those other guys? I actually stumbled upon Kiuas a couple years ago searching for finnish metal on google, read a review of the band that looked promising... then popped in "kiuas" on youtube and watched "Winter In June" and was blown away right there. Enough said. To be short and sweet... I've just have never heard anything so powerful all around... the amazing drumming, guitar riffs & melodies, vocals & lyrics, epicness from the keys & violin (when in use)... everything is just RIGHT. To bandmembers of Kiuas: I'd like to have some feedback on your take on our tastes... like any of the bands, know them personally, toured with them, want to tour with them... etc.
