Great band and I absolutely love the vocals, possibly the deepest-sounding and most filthy growls I have heard. Also a great inspiration for me and my band, check it out if you feel like it :) https://roskband.bandcamp.com/album/demo-ep
She seemed like a beautiful woman in every way, as humble as she was pretty, with the voice of an angel to match. She added so much to the songs she were in and I'm sad we won't be getting more. Rest in peace. (2)

Amazing triple album, the 2nd is a masterpiece of emotions. The 3rd is surprising, funeral and tight and the 1st is very much alike what they did before, but with some very good tracks. Top favs'; Heart of a cold white land, Rooms and Shadows, Silhouettes, Empires of loneliness
Beautifully shot video for Rooms and Shadows, a track that really grew on my after repeated listenings. I've heard really mixed opinions of Mikko's cleans, but personally I think he sounds really good; huge improvement over previous records. Lastly, my ranking of the parts atm: II (best track: Songs from the North) > III (best track: Empires of Loneliness) > I (best track: With You Came the Whole of the World's Tears)
First impression of the LP package: why is there a hipster chick with a stupid tree/leaf hat in the cover of every release (from various angles). I get that Swallow The Sun's lyrics are a lot about women and nature, but this teenage hipster hat thing. Really? I don't think it gives the right impression. Thank god after artificial listen the first cd sounds brilliant. Also the main cover art is lovely and minimalistic.
