”The Gale”
(Moonlight Productions)

Battle Helm Rating

This Finnish band might have started out as melodic death/black metal but that is not what I hear on this new album. Here we are presented with death doom metal. Nothing particularly melodic about it but that doesn’t bother me as it is melancholic enough to win me over. Although we are Nordic brethren there are much that sets us apart. But one thing we Swedes and Finns have in common is the melancholy. The Danes and Norwegians don’t have it. The Danes are more of a happy-go-lucky kind of people. The Norwegians are a people that always seems so joyful and jovial. While we Swedes and the Finns are more of a thinking kind of people. I am not saying that there are no melancholic bands in Denmark or Norway but I am saying that it comes so much more natural to us Swedes and Finns. “The Gale” is proof of that and what proof it is. This might very well be this week’s album. Anders Ekdahl
