Most of you probably haven't heard [B]Stam1na[/B]. They are finnish thrashmetallers, simply put, but their music goes beyond basic thrashmetal, having some progressive elements in their songs. They sing in finnish, so most of the lyrics won't really open to a foreigner, although some of the lyrics have been translated by fans to english. That doesn't really matter in their, or mine, opinion, since [B]Rammstein[/B] has also proven to be very succesfull singing in german. 1996 marked the start for Stam1na. They have since released 3 full-length LPs. First was self-titled debut album "[B]Stam1na - Stam1na[/B]" (2005), second one "[B]Stam1na - Uudet Kymmenen Käskyä[/B]" (2006) and the one I am focusing now "[B]Stam1na - Raja[/B]" (2008).

[B]Stam1na[/B] is:[LIST][*]Antti "Hyrde" Hyyrynen – vocals, guitar[*]Pekka "Pexi" Olkkonen – lead guitar[*]Kai-Pekka "Kaikka" Kangasmäki – bass guitar[*]Teppo "Kake" Velin – drums[/LIST]
[B]Stam1na[/B] had arranged with our biggest rock/metal/alternative oriented radio here in Finland, [B]Radio Rock[/B], a full listen of their new album. With [B]Hyrde[/B] and [B]Pexi[/B] being there to comment the tracks before they aired them, one by one, whole album. Humour was not sparse and it was really nice to hear their own views on the songs. The album is fast, little bit darker than their previous ones, not a bad move. I will update this when my copy of the CD arrives, but by the first listen I'd say it is really good [B]5/5[/B].
[LIST=1][*]Hammasratas (4:08) - [I]Cogwheel[/I][*]Susi-ihminen (3:57) - [I]Wolf-human[/I][*]Muistipalapelit (5:43) - [I]Memoryjigsaws[/I][*]Vartijaton (5:12) - [I]Without guard[/I][*]Voima vastaan viha (3:36) - [I]Strenght against anger[/I][*]Lääke (4:24) - [I]Medicine[/I][*]Kädet vasten lasia (4:02) - [I]Hands against glass[/I][*]Luova hulluus (3:57) - [I]Creative insanity[/I][*]Muuri (4:24) - [I]Wall[/I][*]Murtumispiste (4:28) - [I]Breakingpoint[/I][/LIST]
Translations by me, so there is bound to be some mistakes.

Also, you can listen short clips from their new album here [url]http://stam1na.com/[/url] - on the right side there is a box that has a playbutton.

Lastly, they have their new musicvideo up, for the song "Lääke". This can be viewed here: [B][URL="http://youtube.com/watch?v=zSmP8vp8tME"]Stam1na - Lääke[/URL][/B]
