Finally something a little different!!! Kiuas brings us The Spirit of Ukko and let me tell you...this stuff is great. Basically it blends melody, speed, aggression, catchy choruses and great musicianship to create a well-blended hodge-podge brand of metal. These elements create a sound different from what I have heard recently. Vocally, the singer has a semi-rough mid-range voice which occasionally smooths out and gets rougher. Sometimes aggressive and sometimes reserved, but always full of energy. There is also the guitarist who handles the 'grim' vocals placed sporadically throughout the album. Nothing overbearing and usually well-placed. Overall, they are heavy and a little on the fast side, but there are are several timing changes in each songs to break up any monotony and they also infuse some string arrangments and a cello in parts that add a nice change of pace here and there. So for something different, check these guys out....you won't be disappointed. Favorites: On Winds of Death We Ride, Warrior Soul 84 / 100
