19:06 - Zaphod Ah, thanks, I didn't know that. In that case, I have no idea which will be harder for Finns. I also know Basque isn't related to Indo-European. Or any language group for that matter.
19:06 - Redn1ght Finnish, closest languages in pronunciation are: Italian and parts of Japanese. To get a sense of it.
19:05 - ScreamingSteelUS It would depend on your linguistic background, of course, but I would imagine for Europeans or myself as an English-speaking American that Polish would be easier, since it at least is of the same language descent.
19:01 - ScreamingSteelUS Finnish doesn't. Finnish, Hungarian, and Estonian are part of the Finno-Ugric language group, which is one of a very small number of European languages not related to the Indo-European family.
18:55 - Zaphod Although, to be honest, I have no idea where Finnish fits into the Indo-European language family.
18:53 - Zaphod Also, it depends where those foreigners are from ;) If you're talking about you or me, Chinese will be the hardest, since it has completely different origins than our own languages.
18:49 - Redn1ght Yeah, I would guess Chinese is harder because of the tone/pitch change rules in the language...
Battle Metal warriors Turisas have released their digital-only single Supernaut this week. The single is now available through all digital platforms.
Since the feedback to Turisas' version of Supernaut on Metal Hammer UK's Black Sabbath tribute covermount CD was so positive, the band and Century Media Records decided to release an extended version of the track, featuring an additional one minute that wasn't available on the previously released version of the song.
The band is still busy mixing the upcoming, yet-untitled album with Jens Bogren (Opeth, Paradise Lost, Amon Amarth, Katatonia) at Fascination Street studios in Örebro, Sweden. The album was recorded at the Sound Supreme studio in Hämeenlinna, Finland and will be released in early 2011.
