Guitarist Tuomas Kurikka about the new single ‘VERI‘:
“‘VERI’ is one of the most dynamic songs from the upcoming album with so many different genres and influences mixed together. A true sacrifice for the northern gods.”
UKKO is the second studio album by the Finnish metal band ATLAS. On the 11 new tracks the 5-piece from Tampere presents a new sonic palette and steps into a new direction for the band. For UKKO, ATLAS drew inspiration from Finnish folk music and poetry, combining these influences with the dark soundscapes and dynamic songwriting for which the band is already known. Lyrically and thematically UKKO explores themes of death, healing, rebirth and faith, presented in a seamlessly blended mix of English and Finnish. The album is mixed and mastered by Buster Odeholm (Vildhjarta, Oceano, Humanity’s Last Breath, Born of Osiris) who was able to bring his unique approach and sound to the album.
