The Finnish progressive death metal band Eartheria has released its second EP at the beginning of February.
Two years ago we discovered Eartheria with their first EP “Throes of Time”,
it was immediately clear the potential of this band and we had the confirmation of their talent from their live performances.
Their new EP “Awaken the sun” is going to blow away every dubs; The mini album contains 5 tracks that flow smoothly, the sound is more aggressive and melancholy, the songs are complex with killer riffs and fast drums change-up beats.
What more I love about this album is the balance of the sound, long songs but never boring and the excellent production.
A mention goes also to the artwork, created by Niklas Turunen, which represents very well the essence of the album.
This album is a gem in a sea full of anonymous music, like a cold wind from the north Eartheria comes to refresh the metal scene.
Listen to me; We will hear from Eartheria a lot in the future, they are going to become a well known band.

The Italian surreal metal band Mhela has released its first EP “ES” last month.
It presents 7 tracks which introduce the band’s style.
The melancholic “All around me” is the first track of the album,
I really enjoy the intro with the piano and the guitar solo.
The surprise is “Eden and Hell” sung in spanish, this song is pretty slow but
the sound is addictive.
“Night with spirits” is the first single released from this album and it’s a good track with a catchy refrain.
The guitar arpeggio introduces “She isn’t here”, the sound in this song is soft and all works well.
More heavy are “Nightmare before the war”, “Bastard snake” and “Vampires don’t sleep” but somehow didn’t get my attention
It’s a good EP, even if the sound is still unripe, I like the change of vocals in between clean and growl and musically the band is compact.
If you listen to bands like Bullet for my Valentine you will enjoy Mhela’s music.
