Excellent track, keeping in the tradition of mid-late 90's neofolk.

Is there any US distro for the Silmäpuoli release?

These are just out today but when / if distributors show interest I'll try and remember to post about it here. Or, with any luck, they'll do so themselves!

Also now that I remember, the following older releases will probably soon be sold out:

- both Venus Star tape MLPs
- Pehmeät kasvot tape from Circle of Ouroborus

Looking forward to giving this a listen later. The artwork on the 10" is great!

It sure is. The sample track sounds faceless musically imho as it relies way too much on a well-known neofolk 101 that works without a doubt but sounds rather repetitive and bland for a new band. I think that the lyrics are one more important side to set a fitting mood in this style. While Finnish has a vigorous, mysterious ring, I don't understand a single word of Finnish, and so this layer of meaning remains unaccessible to me. I guess Finnish-speaking listeners are able to get something out of this.

Ah, well, I'm afraid Finnish is all but totally lost on me as well... However I'm not as well versed in the ways of neo-folk as some here, so maybe the musical element won't be as bland to these ears. If it sees US distribution it might be worth picking for that artwork alone, otherwise. Wink

The nails goes down on first attempt. On the other hand, I never considered much music (or art for that matter) very original to begin with. What sort of bugs me is those who showcase their mediocrity as the next sliced bread. Most "art" is little more than people getting on with their lives, their music or whatever form of expression a continuum of this. Best accept it, remain faceless and not nurture any megalomaniac illusions of your own uniqueness. This sort of craftmanship fulfills its own purpose when it materializes and whatever comes afterward is secondary.

In other words, the mlp, like the rest of the Kuunpalvelus catalogue, is nothing exceptional but quite enjoyable all the same.

Dont beat yourself up amigo
CoO has some truly brilliant, fantastic and unique songs.
And is actually one of the most original bands in our little realm.

*Edit: that being said, that new Silmäpuoli track immediatly reminded me of DI6 "Rose Clouds of Holocaust"

Thank you for the kind words. I didn't mean to come across as a self-righteous flagellant though, it's just quite useful to see the bigger picture and one's place in it by stepping outside the box as far and as often as possible. Quite the effective iconoclastic exercise methinks. I mean, fast-forward one hundred years and I don't see 99% of the topics discussed on this forum having any relevance to anyone anymore.

But I suppose that's drifting only a little bit off topic, heh.

If anyone has the tape version of the CC/CoO split and wants to part with it, PM.
