If there's one country whose metal scene has particularly caught my interest in recent years, it's Finland. Facilitated primarily through Svart Records, the country's underground is alive and active, with bands ranging from the groovy (Domovoyd, Altar Of Betelgeuze), the eerie (Tyranny, Dark Buddha Rising), and the outright bizarre (Oranssi Pazuzu, Candy Cane). Relatively new on the scene are Kuolemanlaakso, death doomsters here to shatter concrete with their heaviness and soothe minds with their melodies.

What an awesome album, I didn't know about these guys before and weren't really going to listen to them after seeing that everything is in finnish. Now, I'm glad I did it

Great album. Very enjoyable stuff. But I'm not hearing the "extreme progressive" in this at all, let alone progressive metal.

Also not on their debut and e.p., imo

So nothing about them is progressive, right? Calling them that is pretty strange in that case. Remove the "extreme progressive" tag then.

Real nice album, very dark and Gothic but always enriched in menacing atmosphere, especially with those churning riffs and harsh vocals.

I was so excited that we finally agreed on a genre only to realize you aren't LeKiwi.

Oh well, in any case I'm gonna remove the prog thing because there's not a trace of it to be found on this.

But I am sure LeKiwi will say that it must have the prog tag as well

Anyone claiming this is progressive must be really wanting to hear progressive, so yeah, that does sound like LeKiwi.

But how is it possible to confuse me with LeKiwi?

Really? I got the impression that this style of music was very Gothic, but maybe that's just me. Whatever, it's still an excellent album.

Only spun this album once, but I can't recall hearing gothic in this. Just death doom metal and one weird folky track (I was really surprised by that one). You probably have the wrong idea of what gothic metal is...

Got this album to hear Mikko's vocals (Swallow the Sun), very nice! Just can't get enough of him.

"Me Vaellamme Yossa" makes the entire album worth it. Awesome track.

Not a speck of prog in this. Not sure what you're all on about.

Initially the band style was set to extreme progressive metal or something similar, so a lot of the conversation here is about how that wasn't accurate and thus, the band style is now more appropriate.

I was just referring to the fact that some users thought I would think this would have prog
