With Patria Tervahäät takes a leap towards traditional neofolk. Somber songs are based on warm vocals, determined acoustic guitarwork, and samples of Finnish classical composers. About half of the lyrics of the songs are borrowed from Finnish poets and writers who also loved our homeland each in their own specific ways. Patria is a concept album of our fatherland Finland seen through the eyes of the duo Tervahäät.
GRIFT's style is rather special. Sure, there are black metal influences, but far less than on previous releases. Also the vocals are still desperate and extreme, but mainly "Budet" is a dark nordic folk album with uncommon instruments, Swedish lyrics and complex songwriting. For a quick check listen to "Vita Arkiv", the most accessible and touching track of the album! H.L.
