The farewell gig at Nosturi was epic and you, our fans and friends, made this experience and all past years incredible.
We couldn't have done this without you!
KIUAS comes out of Finland, and are yet another sensational band from that country, which is been overloading us with many new young bands. KIUAS sounds a bit different than the usual STRATOVARIUS, NIGHTWISH and SONATA ARCTICA clones we hear, but is still playing Prog/Power Metal. The first song on the 3-track CD is definitely the strongest track. The song is called Warrior soul, a faster Power Metal track with a superb melodic catchy chorus (a la STRATOVARIUS, SONATA ARCTICA, sorry cant help it!). What sets them apart from the other bands is the bands vocalist, who is able to change his voice from raw, clean to very rough (almost grunts) in a matter of seconds. I hope he will use the clean voice more in the future, as he proves he is at his best during the melodic parts.
