Pohakka – Minä Kävelen Vetten Päällä… (1997)



Pohakka play truely depressive music. Funeral doom-like Black Metal without any tortured vocals, heavy distorted riffs or technical drumming. Why so sad then? Clean bass melodies and slow, plodding drums take center stage over mildly audible guitars before breaking clean for synth and acoustic guitar work. An 18 minute demo of pure depression, and I mean that – a true dimly lit gem from the abyss, seasons greetings!

You'll find me in the vast wilderness of British Columbia, talking metal at LURKER, or working in publishing and front-end web/eBook development.
