Suotana are a band from Finland that plays a melodic form of black/death metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 demo "Forgotten Soil Of this Land".
The demo starts out with a very fast and melodic sound along with blast beats and symphonic keyboards and then the high pitched screams kick in the music goes for a more melodic blackened death metal direction along with some growls and you can hear a lot of influences from bands of their home country in the solos and leads.
The following track starts out with some tragic sounding keyboards along with symphonic elements before going into a more heavy and melodic direction which also has power metla influences being mixed in with black and death metal as well as sticking to mostly a mid paced direction and the leads also have a progressive metal feeling to them.
With this ep Suotana takes the melodic black metal sound of their home country and mixes it in with symphonic elements and death metal influences to create their sound along with a very powerful sounding production and dark lyrics.
In my opinion Suotana are a very great sounding symphonic, melodic black/death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Forgotten Soil Of the Land". 8 out of 10.
