Wolfheart

Wolfheart

Tuomas Saukkonen, the man behind Before the Dawn, Black Sun Aeon and Routasielu, announced last year that all these bands had come to the end of their road. His creative force would from now on be concentrated on a new band, Wolfheart. Certainly a valid decision, as their debut album Winterborn's ascent straight to number seven on the Finnish album chart attests. Quite an accomplishment for a new act spewing out dark and grinding metal.

There something uniquely Finnish in everything that Saukkonen does. His compositions are as rugged as the northern winter and are crafted with a relentless work ethic. No breaks are taken until the quality matches the vision. Only smart intermezzos offer a moment of respite from the onslaught of Wolfheart’s almost pitch black metal. This is something worth experiencing live!
