MUSTAN KUUN LAPSET
MUSTAN KUUN LAPSET
Kauniinhauta
(Northern Sound Records)
38:05min

Judging from their sound I'd probably call MUSTAN KUUN LAPSET Pagan Metal but that's a tricky, possibly wrong label: MUSTAN KUUN LAPSET sing in Finnish so I can't say anything about the lyrics. I think it's a good decision, though, because it sounds "exotic" and the singer isn't getting on one's nerves with a possibly bad English. More bands should consider to sing in their native tongue if you ask me. Moreover, MUSTAN KUUN LAPSET absolutely capture the Finnish vibe I discovered long ago with bands such as AMORPHIS, SENTENCED, etc. Still, the band sounds pretty unique with a strong scent of Black Metal, of course. Some occasional violin parts and a female guest vocalist (very hypnotic in Finnish) contribute to this impression. What many bands fail to do - MUSTAN KUUN LAPSET succeed: they're writing captivating, not necessarily catchy songs. They've got groove, good ideas as well as a high creativity: MUSTAN KUUN LAPSET are musicians from the bottom of their hearts. Available on CD, Digi Pack (ltd. to 1000) and vinyl (only 300 copies).
