Bands
Fvneral Fvkk

FVNERAL FVKK combine the pastoral beauty and solemnity of a cathedral (musically) with the infidelity and vileness of a cemetary prostitute (semantically), with lyrics that deal exclusively with the debauchery of the clergy and / or necrophilia in the name of god. His Holiness is a foul pervert, and this band serves as vessel of His demented will!

Metal De Facto

Esa Orjatsalo, who used to play in the classic Finnish power metal band Dreamtale, had been composing music on his chest of drawers with the idea of some day making a Rome-themed album. He met another power metal enthusiast, bassist Sami Hinkka while being a guitar tech for Sami's folk metal band, Ensiferum.

During the long van rides across Finland from gig to gig, these guys had many hours to talk which is where it all started. The idea of making just one theme album expanded to a totally new band. The idea was that the music would be, to put it modestly, the best power/heavy metal ever made, and every album would have be themed after a certain country's/area's history and mythology. The point was not to be "Wikipedia-metal", but contribute a new angle to the ancient stories and myths.
