Stam1na

 

Stam1na

Stam1na is a great example of a band that does everything right already on the first take. Or maybe it's because they never seem to do anything without proper consideration beforehand. After the band first came into being in the mid-nineties, the world had to wait for their first proper recordings for almost ten years, but then the band's career has been on a steady uprise ever since. And given that Stam1na's self-titled debut was only relased as recently as 2005, it has to be admitted that the band didn't need too much time to carve itself quite a fine niche on the very forefront of Finnish metal.

But success doesn't come as a surprise with a concept like this. Unlike so many metal bands that only want to sing about ancient wars somewhere far away, Stam1na's lyrics combine reflection and social criticism, and this served with progressive metal where meandering song structures meet the best Finnish metal riffs ever heard – well, who in their right mind could resist that? Yet at its best Stam1na is definitely onstage, full of mania, energy and sheer lunacy.
