I would describe HAVUKRUUNU's new album as "typically Finnish". Not only because of the Finnish lyrics, also the anthemic pagan black metal reminds me at Finnish masters like Moonsorrow. "Uinuos Syömein Sota" is majestic and melodic and it offers some piercing traditional guitar passages and heroic chorusses. Check "Kunnes Varjot Saa", a catchy and powerful track which contains all the strengths described. Last but not least: This album spreads positive vibes despite all aggressive elements! H.L.
