Noumena Issues "Kirouksen Kantaja" Video

Finnish melodic death metal band Noumena releases the new album ”Myrrys” today, April 28th. The band celebrates the release with an intriguing music video of the doom and gloom track “Kirouksen kantaja” (“The Bearer of the Curse”), which you can check out below.

"In 'Kirouksen kantaja' dreamlike, slow melodies weave landscape over melancholic, downtempo song. Musical themes are given time to develop - in contrast to this hectic world where people's worth is measured by their ability to perform," analyzes guitarist Ville Lamminaho, the writer of the song.

"Lyrically the song is about overcoming obstacles and gathering strength, 'finding the flame inside,' to battle the curses that most people carry, in a form or another."

The music video reveals what kind of duties and incidents a Finnish park ranger faces, when searching for a lost metal bands in the woods. The story carries the audience into the heart of Finnish wilderness and mystery. The video manages to capture and visualize the themes and the atmosphere of “Myrrys”.

Jack of all trades, Jyrki Muromäki came up the idea, directed, filmed and edited the video. He has collaborated with Noumena earlier, with the music video of ”Sleep.”

The track listing is as follows:

1. Kohtu
2. Metsän viha (song streaming here)
3. Kirouksen kantaja
4. Sanat pimeydestä
5. Sanansaattaja
6. Roihu
7. Murhehuone
8. Pedon veri
9. Syvällä vedessä

"'Metsän viha' is an upbeat opening track of the album, which is a great choice as a single as well. The song combines catchy melodies, badass riffs, overwhelming drumming and Andy’s and Suvi’s merciless growls. Lyrics deal with the humanity’s ability to destroy everything vital and dear." More...

"Dear Noumena fans,

"Eventually we have things in order and we can tear the veil of silence: our next album will be released in April. After a couple of years in hibernation, we are ready to show how to combine the best ingredients of the genre with a peculiar recipe.

Noumena To Record New Album

Finnish act Noumena has issued the following statement about gearing up to record a new full-length album:

"Hello darklings! Almost six years has passed since the release of 'Anatomy of Life.' There have been lots of things in our lives in recent years, but the fervour for the music hasn't died. We have played gigs, written new songs and recorded some of them during past 3-4 years. Unfortunatelly, we weren't able to release the material.

"Now, we have decided to enter studio in October to record our next album, which will be released in the beginning of 2013. There are great songs we want to deliver and chilling moments we want to share! We feel that we owe it to our wonderful fans.

"So, there's going to be lots of blood, sweat and tears during following weeks as we have to grind and rehearse the songs. We shall report to you about the process and offer some pictures and sounds in some sort of diary or blog. Stay tuned!"

Noumena Writing New Material

Bassist Hannu Savolainen of Finland's Noumena has issued the following band update:

"Yeah, we are still here. Though we are almost drowned in snow here in Finland. Lately, we have been rehearsing for the gig in Helsinki. There will be - again - some new material in our setlist, and our beloved Suvi on female vocals.

"We have written new songs, which we find pretty goddamn good. Time is the crucial factor here, we should find enough time to rehearse and arrange new material so that we could enter studio to make demo versions. Then we need a record deal and so on, boring stuff... but inevitable.

"We are quite anxious to forge a new album and I bet you guys wait it like a preacher man waits for the apocalypse. But, we want it to be great with no fillers on it. Solid, catchy and strong songs. Anyway, keep your horns sharp and the scene alive!"

Noumena Issues Band Update

Finland's Noumena has issued the following band update:

"No news from the Noumena camp since the dawn of modern time! Now, we are going to change this thing once and for all.

"We have had a slow-motion period going on for some time. Things will change as we enter frantic rehearsing and composing stage. There are a couple of new Noumena songs written already, but we need more. Just to show Noumena is alive and kicking, please get familiar with a demo version of a brand new song called Sleep at our Myspace page. The song also introduces a stunning new voice in Noumena soundscape. Female vocalist Suvi Uura will give you some shivers...

"At the moment we don't have a record deal with any label. No need to mention, but our goal is to get one and release a convincing album in future!

"We might play some gigs in Finland later this year or in the beginning of 2010. Let's see. Nothing is certain, but we shall continue our journey as stubbornly as the previous 11 years.

"By the way, in Spotify you can find our latest album Anatomy of Life and the digital EP Triumph and Loss. Now all you foreign fans can enjoy that release.

"We want to thank you, our dear fans, for couraging words and correspondence. We won't let you down!"

Noumena Writing New Material

Finnish metallers Noumena have issued the following announcement about writing new material:

"It's been quite a while since the last sign of life, but we're here. Noumena has enjoyed a torpor or winter sleep for a couple of months. We are - after all - from a town with zoo, so I guess we just aped some bear habits... Seriously and actually, we decided to have some time off from Noumena.

"Now the hibernation is over. We have been writing new material and already 5 songs have been rehearsed. Sounds promising! Because of this creative phase we will play only few and selected gigs in near future. Festival gigs are welcome, so remember to push the promoters and festivals in Finland and abroad to book Noumena.

"Btw. Noumena will reach age of 10 this year (spring to be precise). We might figure out something special for you metalheads, so be alert! All the best, Hannu and rest of the Noumena molos"

"For our ears the new material sounds a bit more aggressive, heavier and faster than songs in the "Since the Day It All Came Down". Still it's hard to yet tell how the album will eventually turn out. But we promise that it will serve you all the old tricks mixed with some new elements, twists and turns. Time will tell, hope you can wait until then. And by the way we have already booked the Fantom studio for the next spring where the recording of our third strike will take place. More updates will follow..."
