Bio:

Band formed in Espoo, Uusimaa in 2014.From the beginning of their foundation Valkeat has been something different.Modernizing the sounds and playing styles of traditional Finnish instrument kantele, that according to tales was first played by Väinämöinen in the Finnish national epic Kalevala, the band has created their own unique soundscapes by melting together traditional Finnish kantele-music and modern melodic metal to shape a sound of their own.After releasing first demo early 2015, Valkeat soon took the notice of Finnish metal fans, cultural workers and kantele manufacturers alike. A recording contract was soon signed with Redhouse FMP and collaboration with the premier Finnish kantele manufacturer family Koistinen Kantele, who have forged the sounds of Finnish kantele for generations, started soon afterwards.After finishing their debut album late 2016 and touring with the metal music mammoth Wintersun, Valkeat is looking to take their own vision of new generation Finnish Folk Metal all across the world.

Album:

There is a sense of magic and wonder that is an exclusive thread of Finnish metal. It's the sound of falling snow, running wolves, shining stars and the flickering spirits that are the Northern Lights - and Valkeat are its latest and most fervent ambassadors. Born in 2014 in Espoo, hometown of the almighty Children Of Bodom, the six-piece boasting two kantele players are about to set the world of pagan metal ablaze with their second call of the wild: "Fireborn", a haunting, enchanted piece of Finnish metal history that will go a long way. You can quote us on that. Densely packed with soaring anthems and musical majesty, Valkeat - consisting of singer Miikka Virtapuro, guitarist Aleksi Kulmala, bassist Juho Aarnio, kantele players Eppu Puhjo and Iida-Maria Kuronen as well as drummer and percussionist Vesa Laamanen - continue the great tradition of epic Finnish metal sagas. With jubilant chants, primordial melodies and pagan spirit, the band echoes the great stories of all those before them - of Nightwish, Amorphis, Korpiklaani, Turisas or Moonsorrow. Not by copying them, but by writing hymns to Finland, its forests, legends and otherworldly creatures. "Representing and modernising the traditional Finnish music culture is important to us, which is why we have two kantele players in our band", says vocalist Miikka Virtapuro about the use of Finland's cherished national instrument with its unmistakably forlorn and bittersweet sound. "We are trying to modernise it for a big audience with our country's biggest instrument maker Koistinen Kantele. We hope to create something that will interest people in our culture and traditions, but also something that will give them strength and vitality in the challenges of life that we all face."Something big is coming. "Fireborn" is the album that will make Finnish folk metal great again, a new beginning, a real perspective on these magical, otherworldly melodies. We can't really believe what these guys have done here - a ravishing, uplifting, primal love letter to Finland and its thousand wonders.
