STORMHEIT
Chronicon Finlandiae
(No Sign Of Life Records)
77:00min

Eesh. More grandiose designs on the epic ‘double album’. As can be gathered from the title, this two-piece hails from Finland. They are attempting an Epic Pagan Metal style, mid-paced, and with entirely clean vocals (à la Quorthon). Musically, we’re talking Heavy Metal-lish folky stuff; I guess closest in style to the long defunct BAK DE SYV FJELL. STORMHEIT is guaranteed to bore you to death, however, as there are no crescendos, no hooks – the songs just bounce along, one after the other. Even worse is guy behind the mic. I’m sure all of you who have been to an IRON MAIDEN or MANOWAR gig has had some dickwad, singing off-key at maximum volume, right next to you for the entire 2 hours. STORMHEIT grant us the pleasure of two CDs, 77 minutes of this. Sadly, it seems like there is a label for every band these days. www.myspace.com/stormheit, www.myspace.com/nosignoflife666
