Iku-Turso – Pakana
Iku-Turso's second album. The more folky pagan side of Iku-Turso's classic 2nd wave black metal sound, with hints of classic Norwegian releases such as Satyricon's Shadowthrone, Original Trilogy of Ulver, Windir, selected Burzum works and some of the works of their countrymen like Moonsorrow and Darkwoods My Betrothed. Forged with ancient spirit of barren Kainuu wasteland enforced with the dark Germanic heathen spirit of Lafawijn in vocals. Pakana is a concept album of a Pagan protagonist's journey at the unforgiving wilderness of ancient Kainuu in the days of the old Gods.
