Exklusive Videopremiere: TOMB OF FINLAND "Scattering Ashes"
TOMB OF FINLAND stellen ihren ersten Song vom kommenden Album "Frozen Beneath" vor, welches am 14.09.2018 via Mighty Music in Umlauf gebracht wird.
Olli über den Song:
“Scattering ashes project name was soils of rotten gods. Anyway both names were possibilities for the album, but in the lyrical process my mind was wandering somehow in politics and collective aspect of viewing authorities for some godforsaken reason i cant recall. Lyrics are short, but gives peek in romatized view on boulders upon bluecollars shoulders and the slavement frown upon from this so called elite. But again, these are just thoughts written down based on the moment of creation, so feel free to give meaning to the lyrics yourself.
Track starts with riff filled with melancholic depth followed by destructive groove that leads to opening of main verse. The calm melodies carry the sorrow beautifully into the darkness that is sown within the chorus. The first part is without vocals, but the second blasts open with brutal growls that crashes down with insane mid part growing into dissonant frequencies and thrashy death metal ”ripyourheadoffmosh” riff with a spell from the later books of moses.. and the outro. The outro basically wraps up the best of mid nineties black(ish) metal atmosphere with killer drums. Absolutely the right way to go with vocals accompanies the self destructiveness.”

Tomb Of Finland got the first shovel full of soil into it's mouth in the fall of 2009.
The first album ”Below the green” was written from thousands of nights filled with torment and mourning.
Jasse contacted his previous band member A.Karihtala (CHARON,WOLFHEART, later also KYPCK).
For the vocals Antti suggested to ask Ville (SEITH, DAWN OF RELIC, CRYPTID) to join our woe. First three coffins were now full and ready to rot.
New period of shovels, soil and darkness started. It was important period of seeking more rotten flesh to be gathered together as a full band. Mikko Hannuksela (CARTILAGE,VOMITURITION,ENOCHIAN CRESCENT,GHOSTGUARD) found from neighbour cemetary.
After dark and cold period of slow rotting. Hungry worms growled angry in frozen soil. We felt some movements in our rotten flesh. That was a good start of more active and noisy season of our decaying. Couple of tombs were opened, corpses exhumed and some open tombs got flesh inside to feed the worms in the soil.
-H- joined as bass player and Olli (KAUNIS KUOLEMATON) as new singer. New line-up was built in our silent tombs for future earthly live performances.
Frozen soil was digged and the cemetery gate was opened again. One special corpse A.Karihtala exhumed and returned to living. He left the band physically, but will stay with us spiritually in future. New life was written also into -H-'s in memoriam. He returned to living too. Fresh and agressive corpse Janne Manninen (AND OCEANS,MYGRAIN,MAGENTA HARVEST) was joined our casket ride and replaced A.Karihtala on drums.
In the fall of 2014 our upcoming debut album "Below the green" was mastered in Unisound studios by Dan Swanö. In the heart of winter 2015 Tomb of Finland signed a deal with Mighty Music.
After decaying in silence, Janne M. urged to return to living. His memory is well reserved in the ranks of darkness. He was replaced by more sinister fellow from nearby cascets Janne Lukki, and Ville Kangasharju took over to strangle the living with lower strings of daemonic forces and present line-up was formed.
After newly decaying corpses was laid to rest, the northern darkness fell upon cascets that was open and rotting from new material.
The second album ”Frozen beneath” was born with a birthmark of the five cascets.
In the year 2018 fall, the foul darkness is set upon the world by Tomb of Finland and Mighty Music again.
