As I May

I am aware that I have mentioned it previously though I don’t feel it is repetition for the sake of repetition to comment that musicians from Scandinavia are often able to deliver music which combines what on the surface are polar-opposites that can’t possibly work, yet turn it in to a concept of intrigue and complexity that fascinates – very often melodic-metal.

In HeroAs I May provide the listener with a dark underbelly of fire that opens its wings and glides gracefully through room like a sparrow-hawk searching for prey.

Generally working as a duo they do from time to time add additional players as appropriate in Post-War Love SongMia K is the additional vocalist.

The gloomy recesses of the room appear as sunlit fields, on hitting play, as the oppressive roll of Post-War Love Song, the title track and opener of the three on the single that came out earlier this month, rumbles through the speakers wrapped in velvety layering in which the audience finds themselves hypnotically drawn.

An email that has been sitting in my inbox since last month, sadly, so I am a tad late to this and my apologies.

The Finnish melancholic-metal band Vorna released the single Tie Varjoista on the 5th.

Vorna - Tie Varjoista


The music that Vorna produces leaves the listener with the sense of a dark folk tale unfolding and once having hit play the audience wants to settle down for a lengthy session in their brooding presence with Tie Varjoista (available on bandcamp) being no exception.

Having last revealed an LP just over a year ago – Ei Valo Minua Seuraa  (also on bandcamp) – I hope there is a follow-up on its way shortly.
