Sotajumala are a band from Finland that plays a very brutal form of death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Raunisissa" which was released by Sotajumala-Yhtiot Oy.
A very heavy and brutal death metal sound starts off the album and a few seconds later growls are added onto the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after awhile dark sounding melodies can be heard in certain sections of the recording and at times they music adds in a touch of thrash.
There is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts present throughout the recording and when blast beats are utilized they make the music sound more brutal and some of the tracks also bring in a small amount of high pitched screams and when solos and leads are utilized they are very chaotic and aggressive sounding while they can be very melodic at times and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and all of the songs remain true to a heavy direction.
Sotajumala plays a style of death metal that is very traditional and brutal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in their native tongue and cover Finnish warfare and death.
In my opinion Sotajumala are a very great sounding death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Saattajat" "Veljin Viha" and "Paiva Jollion Aurinko Sammui". 8 out of 10.
