Show features include:
'Lusifer', a beguiling new single by Finnish multi-instrumentalist and percussion wizard, Teho Majamäki, from his coming album "Colours" featuring Ville Valo on vocals,
Some very cool dark & metallish rock out of Copenhagen, Denmark. Forever Still, Front woman Maja Schønning has one hell of a compelling voice, sounding like Amy Lee (Evanescence) cut with Alissa White-Gluz (The Agonist). and cowrites their songs.,
And in hour 3, we feature some fierce pagan metal from Madrid, Spain: Heid and their 5-track release "Voces de la Tierra Dormida". Think of them as Spanish pirate metal., all dark growls and lilting folk instrumentation - including recorder, bandura, and violin as well as brutally beautiful execution of some solid metallic arrangements. \w/ -e.V.
Multi-instrumentalist & percussion virtuoso Teho Majamäki, who will be releasing the first single "Lusifer" (Lucifer) from his forthcoming so-far untitled album, next week. The song is in Finnish, the lyrics are by poet Aarnio Kovda. Ville Valo has the lead vocal and co-composed the song with Majamäki, & Samuli Laiho. Majamäki's coming album Colours which will be released on the 13th of February, 2015, by Finnish independent music publisher & indie record label Exogenic Music Group.
"'Lusifer' originated in a final evening studio session last autumn, just before packing up our instruments." Majamäki told online Finnish music magazine Rumba, in an exclusive interview.. "It's fantastic that this atmospheric 'last night' became the first single album."
The percussionist told the Finnish music outlet that making the album has involved many of his friends and music pros, and that he is "grateful to all involved pedestrians. The album will feature a number of great artists, starting with Ville Valo on the first single release.."
Rumba says that Valo discovered that the song perfectly suited the text of Aarnio Kovda's 1904 poem "Lucifer's Harp. "
