Finnish extreme doom metallers KUOLEMANLAAKSO have released the second video from their highly acclaimed debut album, Uljas uusi maailma, released late last year via SVART RECORDS. The “Ikiuni” clip was directed by Mika Kettunen, and it features live footage from the band’s shows at Lutakko, Jyväskylä and Nosturi, Helsinki in their native Finland. The video for KUOLEMANLAAKSO’s “Ikiuni” can be viewed in its entirety here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?
To celebrate the release of the new video, the band will hit the road with one of the hottest names in occult rock today, SVART labelmates JESS AND THE ANCIENT ONES. The tour will cruise through four major cities in Finland, ending at the legendary Tavastia club in Helsinki. The tour dates are as follows:
May 15. Yo-Talo, Tampere
May 16. Henry’s Pub, Kuopio
May 17. Klubi, Tampere
May 18. Tavastia, Helsinki
KUOLEMANLAAKSO’s ultra-heavy but catchy Uljas uusi maailma was co-produced, mixed, mastered, and engineered at Woodshed Studio by V. Santura of Triptykon and Dark Fortress fame. The album entered the Rumba Indie Chart at #6, and the Official Finnish Album Chart at #42. The band features Mikko Kotamäki of Swallow the Sun and Barren Earth on vocals.
Also on SVART, JESS AND THE ANCIENT ONES released a mind-blowing follow-up to their self-titled debut, the Astral Sabbat EP, this past February. The band just got back from the sold-out Roadburn Festival, and are hungry for some shows in their native country.
