Black Metal

Hear the Beast Rise on VÄKI “Kuihtuvan maan puoliso”

Now this is some shit that has my head banging from the first riff! It’s the new offering from Finnish Black Metal horde VÄKI called Kuolleen Maan Omaksi (Succumbed to the Dead Soil) and it has me damning all the gods! There’s a seedy, groovy rock ‘n roll underbelly that I absolutely adore, but it’s layered under that swarm of locusts feel that makes black metal so ghastly. Today I’m happy to share their track “Kuihtuvan maan puoliso (The Consort of the Barren Earth)” off their new album that’s out on Redefining Darkness Records (NA) and Saturnal Records (EU) on July 17th – you can pre-order the CD/digital versions here and here. Right here and now, hit play on our exclusive track stream and let VÄKI decapitate you with their razor-sharp riffage!
