Finnish extreme metal band, i Helvete have released the second single “Sairaan Mielen Sinfonia” from their upcoming debut album ‘Sinisten Puiden Niitty’
Singer-guitarist Aleksi Mäkelä tells about the song:
“The song was written for a long time before the lyrics were completed. We had to choose between this and another track, which one will be the second single. After the lyrics were written, we realized that this one has a very catchy chorus so it was chosen. We are actually very proud of this one. Sairaan Mielen Sinfonia is almost five minutes long and it’s interesting from start to finish. All the sections fell into place exceptionally smoothly. Johanna Kuusela also managed to conjure up an absolutely awesome cover image for this song that perfectly reflects it. Playfully, this did cause us some gray hair, hah.”
The track flows through various moods within its 5 minute run time. Direct and forceful to more desperate sounding with some ear catching interludes and gang like backing vocals to go with Mäkelä deep growl. The drums are a constant barrage as the music slips into melodic phrases and heavy punishing rhythms. Nothing short of a masterpiece of extreme metal.
