HEAVY METAL PERSE - Fleeing the Gods CD
Amazing power/speed metal from Finland with mystical Nordic atmosphere only certain Scandinavian bands are able to achieve. Taking you on a breath-taking journey through Karelia and beyond.
BLAZON STONE fans already know Matias Palm. This is his main band, in which in addition to vocal duties he also plays guitars. Musicwise, think of Amorphis (Skyforger, Elegy circa) meets Gamma Ray and Beast in Black, with progressive and folksy touch. Add to that the lyrics dealing with myths and legends, and you may get the overall picture, or better yet, just play the tunes and hear for yourself!
For fans of: AMORPHIS (Skyforger, Elegy circa), GAMMA RAY, SYMPHONY X, BEAST IN BLACK, FALCONER, ELVENKING, LOST HORIZON, STORMWARRIOR, BLAZON STONE
