Finnish modern melodic metal band Viimeinen Oodi Vapaudelle (VOV) releases their debut single

Finnish modern melodic metal band Viimeinen Oodi Vapaudelle (VOV) has released their first single. “Rakkauden Alttari” shamelessly exposes the seemingly insurmountable challenges in a love-hate relationship between two individuals. The price paid for this impossible relationship is high, yet the parties are never willing to let go of each other. Clad in the guise of modern melodic metal, the band’s debut is catchy. The skilled mezzo-soprano Karoliina McLoud’s singing makes the song uniquely Finnish metal music.

“The debut single ‘Rakkauden Alttari’ by Viimeinen Oodi Vapaudelle is a raw depiction of a challenging love-hate relationship, where souls don’t survive without bullet holes. The key element in creating the song has been a solid dose of modern melodic metal.” – Says the band’s guitarist, Teemu Harjunen.
