The original post

Posted by Talvi on 17.05.2006 at 23:49
Well, I just had to do this. My favorite band HAS to have their own topic. Because, well, Moonsorrow is THE BAND. Iron Maiden are the godfathers. Dream Theater are the perfect musicians. But the spirit, the magic, the VIKINGS... Moonsorrow are my, for me, the GODS (sorry if some peoplie didn't like this 'adjective')

It's just that the melodies they have chill my full body... I love every one of their albums, but Voimasta Ja Kunniasta is my favorite album, ever. Unohduksen Lapsi, my favorite song of theirs.

Their style is just unique. All their songs (or most of them) are epics, from 6 to 13 minutes (14-19 for Verikansaa), which very repetitive riffs and very keyboard driven melodies. No other band has played or plays like them, which makes them a very original and unique band. It's useless loving a band when 50 other bands play the same, and maybe better. Not with them.

And well, just comment what you think of this band, which will release a new album later this year. I hope it will be the best album of 2006 (with competition like Blind Guardian and Iron Maiden).

Hail the vikings!

on verisakeet do the beginnings of like the last 3 songs all have that funny, strange *boing boing* noise?? or is it just my copy?

I know that Kris Verwimp did one or two covers. At least he did the Tulimysky ep.

Heh, well I have bad news really.
The interview went really really well - but Soilwork were playing in the background and so on the recording the voices are muffled by all the background noise. It is bad. I can't tell what is being said...
So unless there are any masters of sounds out there, looks like this interview will unfortunately be wasted. Which is a big shame.

One of the best Finnish Epic Folk/Viking Metal bands. Still the only downside maybe the Finnish language it self I find it some time unfit with the music itself, especially the more clean vocals.

I must completly disagree with you. Finnish language is perfectly fits with their folk metal!

Haha, well once I have the Wacken and Bloodstock reviews on and I don't have to stress about so many things in general I will have a proper look at the recording and see if I can hear anything that will jog my memory as to what was said and I will see how much I can salvage from it. We'll just have to see.
I asked many interesting things.. I won't say anything yet though in case anything can be salvaged and then I will put it all out together.

Agree. Kivenkantaja and Voimasta ja Kunniasta are to me better. Even though are all amazing.

I have been listening to Voimasta Ja Kunniasta, my first Moonsorrow experience. Really like it but I don't like the finnish language too much with the harsh vocals. But any way great athmosphere in this music. Witch album could I listen after this one? Kivenkantaja?

Hey, all the albums are amazing! I like Verisakeet the most right now but it can be because I haven't listened to it too much before.
Suden Uni, Voimasta and Kivenkantaja are masterpieces. And I think there isn't too much difference in sounding between the albums.

I really don't care for Metallica, and I really love Moonsorrow, but I think the cover was terrible. They could have found a much better song to cover, unless they are just trying to boost their fan base a little bit before their US tour in 2009. You should definitely get Verisäkeet or Suden Uni, they are the best albums of all time.

ok..i'll find them..and write my comment about them here..takk)

And when Moonsorrow recorded it, Henri was drunk as fukk cause he drank a whole bottle of rum that's why his voice sounds the way it does on For Whom The Bell Tolls. How do I know this, cause I was talking to Mitja Harvilahti just before actually


I am so shocked, was talking to Mitja again just before and I mentioned how much money I have spent on Moonsorrow's products (a fukking lot) and he was so surprised that he offered to send me a copy of Verisäkeet signed by all 5 band memebers. Man I can't believe it the band I love the most and I get a signed copy of my favourite album of thiers now that just made my new year's perfect

Fuck you! lucky man...
