Biography

Kouvola, Finland (2002 – present)

Year 2002:

Two brothers from a small Finnish town called Kouvola, Finland, Antti (keyboard) and Joni Koskinen (guitar, growling vocals) decide that they have had enough of playing cover songs and end up writing their own songs. The most influential album that innovates their song writing and they both love and cherish is Moonsorrow’s ‘Voimasta ja kunniasta’ (Of Strength and Honour).

Year 2003:

While jamming at their home garage they write their first folk metal song. Joni writes the lyrics and the song is named “Viimeinen Peikkokuningas” (The Last of the Troll Kings). They wonder how to call their two-man project and finally decide to call it Kivimetsän Druidi (The Druid of the Stone Forest), because the lyrics are based on the fantasy novel, that Joni is writing. The novel tells a story ftom The Land of the Crystal Mountain and Stone Forest. Come the end of the year and Antti and Joni have written more songs. They record a homemade seven song demo and call it ‘Kristallivuoren Maa’ (The Land of the Crystal Mountain). The seven songs are 1. Hvel Efangon (prelude), 2. Viimeinen Peikkokuningas (The Last of the Troll Kings), 3. Kristallivuoden Maa (instrumental) (The Land of the Crystal Mountain), 4. Neljä Kansaa (Four Nations), 5. Tulitanssi (instrumental) (Fire Dance), 6. Scrunin Taru (Tale of Scrun), 7. Kotimatka (Outro) (Way Back Home).
