Kylmä Kaunis Maailma
Review by Krys on February 24, 2014.
And this is how you leave a mark with a full-length debut. Kaunis Kuolematon (Immortal Beauty) invite us to their dark world with a very powerful statement "Kylmä Kaunis Maailma" ("Cold Beautiful World") that is very ironic since there's nothing 'beautiful' about this album. Well, unless black emotions and death are 'beautiful' in your dictionary.
Melodic death with huge dose of atmospheric doom serve as perfect vehicle to deliver this somber message and even-though it's in Finish and I don't understand a single word the raw emotions coming out from song arrangements and its dynamics leave a painful scar that can only be compared to loosing someone very close. There's no comfort to be found on this record, with each minute you get closer to your life's journey where every songs is a painful and dull nail going through your body. Kaunis Kuolematon make sure there's nothing pleasant about your time spent on this earth, you'll cry, you'll spin like a suffocating worm and you'll scream hidden in a corner of your room…
OK, I have to get out and see some sun, these guys pinned me down for way too many days that I care to admit but the rest of you that haven't had a chance to enjoy this beauty get yourself a copy and sail away.
