Well, this is unexpected.
Finnish metal heathens Moonsorrow have inked a new deal with Century Media Records. This band is fucking epic, folks. Dark and epic, and if you aren’t familiar with them, head to the end of this post and bare witness.
“Moonsorrow are thrilled to start working with Century Media, a label that is home to many fellow artists already,” says the band in a statement.
“We never make our music half way or with compromises and we know our art is in good hands with people who have the same mentality in running a record label. Now, after a year since the release of our last album we are ready to begin creating something new. The new chapter in this epic journey of Moonsorrow!”
This is fucking rad news. These dudes are fucking incredible, and I’ve been waiting for new shit from them.
“Much has been said about the dark soul of Finnish Metal. A sound that is hard to copy for any non-domestic band. A sound out of endless woods, deepest sorrow and epic majesty,” says Jens Prueter, Head Of A&R at Century Media Europe.
“Moonsorrow are probably the most epic of all Finnish bands, not only because most of their songs are over 10 minutes long (sometimes even over 30 minutes), but mainly because they are able to tell stories that are older than written culture. You can follow them even if you don’t understand a single Finnish word. Moonsorrow are able to take you on journey through heathen times. I’m guessing I’m not the only one who can’t wait for the next chapter.”
