Carved in Ashes – Still Frozen Water

Label: Macaroni Penguin Music    release: Nov 12, 2016

It took a while from the recording to the release of these 4 tracks on this EP – the third of this Finnish Progressive Metal / Alternative Rock act which was founded in 2009. Singer Juanma Draven could reach a wider audience thanks to the Voice of Finland TV show, and hopefully this EP can raise more attention towards the band too. Their melancholic-progressive music – the band refers to e.g. Opeth, Anathema, Katatonia and Kingston Wall – definitely deserves it, and who does not at least occasionally feel some gooseflesh hearing Draven’s voice (e.g. The beginning of Days to Come), should see a doc for an ear flushing… Oh and by the way, those guys are pretty awesome live too (check this PHOTO GALLERY).

reckless and merciless dictator, so KNEEL! In other words, editor-in-chief, translator, website and ad admin, "Jane of all trades" - - - addicted to books (everything between Lord Of The Rings & quantum physics) and music, mainly Metal made in Finland. Furthermore, there's painting, drawing, movies, theater... so you can expect some variety on this website too. MA Master of Arts, English and American studies & Media communication = completed two full studies parallel within 5 years; very proud of my achievement - a bit later in life thanks to a scholarship - as a working class girl in a highlyconservative-romancatholic nation...
