Finnish crusaders of epic heathen metal, MOONSORROW,
Jens Prueter, Head Of A&R at Century Media Europe:
Much has been said about the dark soul of Finnish Metal. A sound that is hard to copy for any non-domestic band. A sound out of endless woods, deepest sorrow and epic majesty. MOONSORROW are probably the most epic of all Finnish bands, not only because most of their songs are over 10 minutes long (sometimes even over 30 minutes), but mainly because they are able to tell stories that are older than written culture. You can follow them even if you don’t understand a single Finnish word.
Their 5th album, “Viides Luku – Hävitetty” (2007) included just two songs, both of them checking in at around the 30 minute mark, paving way to new heights of epic pagan art,
