Finland's My Reflection showcases the story of Finland, it's nature and history through their new video "Homeland"
The story of Finland, nature and history - My Reflection offers a showcase to Finnish metal with an atmospheric video "Homeland"
Finland is known for its thousands of lakes and major metal bands such as Stratovarius, Wintersun and Nightwish. Now the story of Finland's 100 years of independence, nature and some the best Finnish metal characteristics are combined in the "Homeland" single and music video by, also Finnish, metal band My Reflection.
"When composing, the "Finland 100" theme was very prominent and I wanted to tribute my homeland somehow, filming the "Homeland" video took a year to capture all the Finnish four seasons. "We missed the main celebration but it is great to own the piece to 100-year-old Finland still at this point."
"The song also offers a kind of a showcase to Finnish metal by combining its more delicate and delightful sides. There was no intention to do any clear line-up and I let the thoughts speak. Feelings are often roller coaster and this is the end result this time." says Petja Haapaniemi, the composer-guitarist-vocalist of My Reflection.
The band ends several years of silence to the release. "The break has brought certain balance and maturity to our music. We are happy to finally share the piece with all the metal fans", says My Reflection vocalist Jenni Räikkönen.

Finland's Wolfheart to release "Constellation Of The Black Light" on September 28th via Napalm Records
The Wolves strike back with their long awaited 4th full length studio album Constellation Of The Black Light which will be released on September 28th via Napalm Records.
Wolfheart’s music embraces the sheer force and beauty of Finnish nature with fiery passion. After the success of their first three albums that all hit the Top 10 in the Finnish album charts, among them their last album Tyhjyys that charted in Switzerland as well, the time has come to unleash the next masterpiece of raw Winter Metal! Constellation Of The Black Light comes with seven tracks that dive head-first into Black Metal, Nordic Death Metal, soaring melodies and complex arrangements.
The band on the new album:-
"Determination and perseverance were the key points in the making this album while conquering obstacle after obstacle during the process of recordings while coldness and beauty of winter were the themes where the music was born. This is definitely a triumph in Wolfheart career and one of the biggest battles won in my personal career. I could not be more satisfied with the result and with new label and management behind us we are headstrong to stay in the bath of victories."
Rockshots Records is thrilled to announce the signing of Finnish metal combo SoulHealer for their fourth studio album entitled "Up From The Ashes" set for release on September 14th in Europe and September 21st in North America. Album pre-order available http://bit.ly/UpFromTheAshes_CD.
SoulHealer play traditional heavy and power metal with an old fashioned 80's attitude blended with a modern metal touch. Their catchy lyrics and unforgettable guitar riffs delivers the perfect soundtrack to both 80’s lovers and the new fans alike looking for great melodies and easy-to-remember songs.
Guitarist Teemu Kuosmanen comments:
"Our upcoming album will be a killer! This is our fourth album and the first one we took our time with. Our previous albums "Chasing the Dream" and especially the third "Bear the Cross" we rushed to compose and record. Both albums included really good songs but I can't stop thinking how good they could be if we didn't hurry them. Now we look forward and this upcoming album has matured slowly and we have taken time to make the arrangements better. I’m sure our fans will love this album. They will find something new but the soul of SoulHealer will still be there.”
SoulHealer's first single “The Final Judgement” off “Up From The Ashes” can be heard at the following link: https://youtu.be/lcSRdxZVZPE

Wrestling is an old school heavy metal band from Oulu, Finland and their debut album "Ride On Freaks" is released via Inverse Records on September 14th 2018. The album pays homage to the classic heavy metal style of the 80’s, and you can clearly hear the influence of bands like Accept or Ozzy Osbourne in Wrestling’s music. But Wrestling is not just a tribute band. On the contrary they are spicing up their soup with various different styles. You can find clues of punk at one end and even some pure pop melodies at the other. The album is quite diverse in style and it’s also been recorded in a traditional fashion that leaves lots of room for the musicians to create the atmosphere they are after. So Wrestling is definitely not math metal. Or well… perhaps short term math metal at most.
The band released a new single from the upcoming album "Surreal Killer".
Watch the music video here: https://youtu.be/K4Th1vrDibI
"Surreal Killer shows us Wrestling at its most vicious mood. This speed metal influenced tune tells us a story of a serial killer artist, whose simple mission is… well, to make art out of death."

Watch music video here: https://youtu.be/dFckmAtDZV0
Vocalist/guitarist Elmeri Kinnunen comments:
"The original idea for the weekend in Pykälä was to just go there rehearse and go to sauna. Then we thought it could be fun if we bring some cameras with us. We'll definitely do that again. Hopefully, everyone can sense the joy and the happiness from our faces. After all, this was a completely another dimension for us! "
Werewolf Records, in conspiracy with Hells Headbangers, sets August 17th as the international release date for Morketida's striking debut album, Panphage Mysticism, on CD and vinyl LP formats.
Hailing from the black metal hotbed of Finland, Morketida drive deeply into their native land's most mystical depths. Whereas so many nowadays Finnish black metal bands derive influence from the cryogenic fury of the Satanic Warmaster axis or the paradigmatic bestiality of early Beherit, Morketida return to the woodland wonder of such oft-overlooked hordes of Noenum, Vritra, and Blood Red Fog's most desolate musings. By no means plagiarists, the young mavericks behind Morketida similarly invoke a ghostly grimness, wandering within the night to thick-yet-spacious swells of ripped-raw guitar and foggy organ. Largely downtempo, this is black metal stripped of superfluous aggression but suffused with beyond-the-shade atmosphere. Indeed, this is Panphage Mysticism!
Werewolf Records is a Luciferian metal temple founded in 1998. The wolfish cry from the Carelian battlegrounds, Werewolf Records releases black metal and other dark arts motivated exclusively by theistic Satanist views of the founder Werwolf. In this age when black metal's worth is questionable, idealism and rigor are the exception when they should be the highest law. We uphold the law of the Wolf - the destruction of the weak and the false so that the original vitality of the dark magic art can continue to grow and create the foundations for an empire. Black metal is Will and Power. We deal with material that inspires us on our journey towards our own kingdom - a kingdom that is not yours, but bears a resemblance to the one there could be for you. Now in conspiracy with Hells Headbangers, the temple of Werewolf Records shall wage its war farther and wider than ever, with no spiritual surrender.
In the meantime, hear the new track "Temple of Prevailing Darkness" HERE at Werewolf Records' Bandcamp, where the album can also be pre-ordered.

American/Finnish sensations Tornado have returned with their third release, aptly titled "Commitment To Excellence", 11 songs of highly catchy and in-your-face Thrash Metal!
Formed in 2010 in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Tornado quickly released their Peter Tagtgren (Hypocrisy/Pain) produced debut album "Amsterdamn, Hellsinki". 2016 saw the release of the sophomore album "Black President" as well as the video for the anti-bullying song "David and Goliath" which caught the attention of several anti-bullying agencies, one of which used singer Superstar Joey Severance in a country wide advertising campaign.
With "Commitment To Excellent", Tornado continue to do what they do best: writing songs that you can actually remember, with their own original recipe consisting in a blend of thrash, sleazy and glam!
This time around, the band also brought along some friends to help out in certain places: Nile’s Karl Sanders, Immolation’s Ross Dolan and Pro-Pain’s Adam Phillips, as well as Glen Drover (former Megadeth member).
