The Scandinavians’ talents for great metal have been long documented. Bands like In Flames, Soilwork and Opeth have taken heavy sounds into adventurous and arty places, but very often have managed to underscore their heavier moods with some superb melodies.
Finland’s Everture are another band that should be on your radar. Their debut album ‘Emerge’ takes the heavy edges of In Flames and melds them with a few more melodic traits. With the help of a few massive choruses, it’s a record that should appeal to a broad range of metal fans. Their current single ‘Closure’ sounds like the marriage of In Flames and Trivium with the addition of a heavy AOR bands hook. It’s a great insight of things to come.
