    An old friend of mine emailed me this this morning with a recommendation of a band that I had never heard before. Needless to say, I enjoyed the "hell" out of what I heard. It's non-pretentious prog rock/metal lite with some big hooks, soaring leads, and very nice female vocals.

    I like the vocals alot. Not to girly and not to forced. This stuff seems to be on the rise now.

    I couldnt get into The Devil's Blood. The vocals annoyed me. Blood Ceremony are good but for short periods of time. After a while it makes me sleepy.

    Certainly pretty cool stuff coming from my hometown. Managed to catch them live a few weeks ago at the Tuska festival, works sweet live too (interesting lineup too with 3 guitarists on stage).

    The label is selling the CD for 14 euros (= around 17USD) including worldwide shipping, not too bad considering it's out in very limited area so far. Here's the direct link:

    That was actually quite good. I'll see what else is out there for this band. Maybe a vendor will have this CD available for sale at PP USA next month? (hint hint)

    Bump, this deserves more attention. I've been spinning this album nearly non-stop ever since it showed up in my mailbox.

    Amazing debut. I am addicted to it. Guaranteed top 10 for 2012 and the year still has new ones from Witchcraft, Graveyard, and To-Mera to look forward to. This has been a GREAT year for new music!

    Antti Boman from Demilich is in this band. I much prefer Demilich, but hey, that's whatever.

    The name sucks...That alone keeps people away from trying it, but a Glenn recommendation is a good thing

    People at work now think I'm crazy as I laugh out loud during my lunch break. Thanks. I needed that.

    Sounds good. Thanks for sharing. It has a really unique and cool retro sound (dont know why but something about the instruments remind me of Mercyful Fate/Ghost), mixed with a bit of indy/dark age. Very cool sound. Like the female vocals too.
