Magic and wonder are an exclusive part of the Finnish metal saga. This music embodies the sound of falling snow, howling wolves, shining stars and the flickering spirits of the northern lights like no other. VALKEAT are the latest ambassadors of this Finnish cultural heritage.
The new masterpiece „Fireborn“ will be released on August 18, 2023 via Reaper Entertainment. The band will play a release show at this year’s Summer Breeze Open-Air.
That something big is coming here is already proven by the first harbinger. The first digital single „Tribe“ is now available on all major streaming platforms.
The official music video for the song can be seen here:
„Fireborn“ is the album that will lead a new generation of Finnish Modern Folk & Symphonic Metal. A new beginning, a new perspective on those magical, otherworldly melodies that have enthralled us for decades. We can hardly believe ourselves what this band has created here – „Fireborn“ is a flaming, uplifting, enchanted love letter to Finland and its thousand wonders.
