Lovijatar Announces "Pimeän Tuoja" Album Release

Lovijatar is Finnish act combining stoner rock and pagan/folk influences. The band will release "Pimeän Tuoja" ("The Bringer of the Dark") via Inverse Records and Secret Entertainment on November 22nd, 2013. Inverse comments:

"The line-up of Lovijatar consists from crew known from bands like Battlelore, Elephant Bell, and Boner.

"The lyrical inspirations comes from Finnish epic folklore Kalevala and old Finnish poetry. Melodic ideas come partially from traditional Karelian keens of requiems (itkuvirsi) that have been recorded at the beginning of the 1900's when the last traditional folk singers were still alive."

Guitarist Rautio comments: "I feel that we must do music in finnish because it is our mother language and if really want to evoke emotion we can not do it in another languages. We have lost lots of old Finnish culture and it is best preserved in folk poetry. That’s the only place where we can really go and find something ancient from our heritage."

The album's track listing is as follows:

1. Vainovalkea
2. Kadotettu
3. Puujumala
4. Uhrilehto
5. Kulje Kuu Pala Päivä
6. Kun Usva Peittää Minut Saleihinsa
7. Lievo
8. Syntyi Lovijatar
9. Louhen Lahjat
10. Kolmisormi
11. Tuonen Musta Joki
