Kuolemanlaakso - Uljas Uusi Maailma (2012)
Mikko Kotamaki (of Swallow the Sun and Barren Earth fame) is at it again with a new project that blends black, death and doom all in one package. It is quite remarkable that he can do both death growls and black shrieks so amazingly well. Not many other extreme vocalists possess such a talent. The music is pretty straightforward, especially compared to Barren Earth. There's plenty of headbanging to be had, but there is a bit of subtlety here and there. Overall, it's a pretty interesting release for the end of the year and one that fans of Kotamaki's other projects won't be disappointed in.
