Finnish Blackened Death Metal band Saasta releases first song and a music video from their upcoming EP

Hailing from Kotka, Finland, Blackened Death Metal band Saasta will release their new EP “Black | Death | Doom” on December 5th 2023. The first single “Sickness” and music video of the opus in question is released on November 2nd. The band’s debut album “Crucial to None” was released in November 2022.

Founded together with the drummer Jimi Lahtinen, the band’s guitarist Topias Jokipii comments on the freshly released single: “The song presents a reborn, dirtier and in its own beautiful way, a more obnoxious kind of Saasta. After I shifted from a guitarist-singer to solely playing guitar, Mr Leevi Kärsämä had the guts to step in as a singer. This change gave Saasta a new life and the band truly found themselves, both musically and visually, and that can be clearly heard on the new release. The merciless playing style of the band’s bassist Janne Hietanen supports the music of a metal band with only one guitar perfectly, and thus, maybe even a little unorthodoxly, the bass is raised to be an equal instrument with the guitar, instead of presenting a steady, boring low register. The artwork of the EP describes perfectly the visual side of Saasta, which is incredibly important to us when playing live shows.”

Saasta has also released a music video for the single “Sickness”. The video is a merciless description of an individual fallen beyond the safety nets of society, and to what an extreme sickness of mind can lead to.
