Finnish metal band Achiote to release their second album 'Loneliness of Endless Days' - a painful work of grief followed by a severe illness of a band member, death wish and helplessness. Check out the new music video yet filled with a dash of hope – It's a Trap!
V.R. Label Finland proudly presents Achiote's new upcoming second album. The album is all about sadness and leaving things behind - the original female bass player-singer Anu has been forced to leave the band due to an illness caused by a typical Finnish household mold problem. Divorces and drifting apart have forced the reformed band 'to deconstruct their obstacles into an emonationally strong and diversely fascinating metal.' (M.Meriläinen, Soundi 2017)
Achiote is a Finnish metal band combining melodic heavy and soulful 90's rock spiced up with northern romanticism. The debut album 'Deimos' was very well received in sincere praises by both critics and fans. The band is on the road with the following shows and more to be announced:
10.2. Baari, Turku, Finland
24.2. Bar Loose, Helsinki, Finland
25.2. Fubar Rock Club, Tallinn, Estonia
21.4. Bar 15, Seinäjoki, Finland
The band's comments on the album:
'The 'hard second album' was indeed hard this time! Making the music was almost easy, but other parts of life seemed to drive a few of us insane while making this album. Divorces, drifting apart and longing have led the band to fight the evil and suffering with their music and art all bristled up. With this album we say our farewells to what we so deeply loved.'
