We often get asked to participate in compilation, tribute and cover albums. Sadly, about half of these albums never get released. Some time ago, we re-recorded a track of our first demo for such an album that will never see the light of day. Instead of letting this recording rot on a hard drive, we'll rather offer the 2013 version of "Upon the Waves of Ægir" to you, free of charge. Enjoy and feel free to spread this one.

I would describe HAVUKRUUNU's new album as "typically Finnish". Not only because of the Finnish lyrics, also the anthemic pagan black metal reminds me at Finnish masters like Moonsorrow. "Uinuos Syömein Sota" is majestic and melodic and it offers some piercing traditional guitar passages and heroic chorusses. Check "Kunnes Varjot Saa", a catchy and powerful track which contains all the strengths described. Last but not least: This album spreads positive vibes despite all aggressive elements! H.L.
