I have been interested in painting and photographing since a child; I feel that it's important way to express one's thoughts and feelings.
Nature has always been a close element to me, so it is one of my main sources for inspiration. The old myths and traditions related to nature and the fauna are an excellent source for inspiration as well, to bring ambiance and symbolism in my paintings.
Music is as important source, of course. Also human mind and different feelings, as well as visuality and imagination.
I paint mainly with acrylics on canvas and I like to do really detailed works.

Birthday: 21st October

Interests & hobbies: nature and animals, music, art (visual arts, photography, writing), Finnish mythology and folklore, vintage stuff, cooking, travelling, life...

Favourite band / music style: rock music; mostly progressive- or pop rock influenced ones.
Amorphis, Rush, Pink Floyd, Kate Bush, Indica, David Bowie... and the list goes on.

Favourite visual artist: Akseli Gallen-Kallela, Alphonse Mucha, Pirkko-Liisa Surojegin, Travis Smith and many others.

So Amorphis is going to release both a new album Under the Red Cloud and also a biography book about their history in the near future, but before that they play few summer festival gigs also here in Finland - but these ones aren't "ordinary kind of" gigs, because they're Tales from the Thousand Lakes-anniversary gigs (it's 20 years since it's release; as is known, Tales is one of their classic albums and also their final breakthrough). 

I had a chance to see one of these anniversary gigs at Tuska Open Air in Helsinki. It indeed was great and unique chance to witness Tales being entirely played live, even if I did think that the atmosphere of these songs could fit even better to a smaller club gig than to summerlike festival gig. Nevertheless also the visual side of the gig looked beautiful, suiting the music, as the classic eagle picture from the Black Winter Day-artwork was printed in the backdrop and also the big pyrotechnics were quite a cool. 

Of course the band has performed also these older songs from the early era several times with Tomi Joutsen, so even though the band played Tales in it's entirety from the beginning to the end, certain songs as "Joutsen-era versions" were already familiar to me. But First Doom, Forgotten Sunrise and To Father's Cabin were the ones that I heard for the first time sang by Tomi - and overall as live performs. The voice of Ville Tuomi is an essential part of the original To Father's Cabin, but in my opinion this live version sang by Tomi worked well in it's own way, too. Also Magic & Mayhem, In the Beginning and especially Drowned Maid were the highlights for me. 

Also the song choices in encore were picked from the albums of the early era, as they played Vulgar Necrolatry from The Karelian Isthmus-debut, Better Unborn and My Kantele from Elegy, and the atmospheric piano instrumental Folk of the North from Black Winter Day-EP was played as a last song. This kind of special gigs are always refreshing and great to witness, no doubt about it. 

Set list:

Thousand Lakes 
Into Hiding
The Castaway
First Doom
Black Winter Day
Drowned Maid
In the Beginning
Forgotten Sunrise
To Father's Cabin

Ole hyvä, ansaittuja ovat :) Stalkkasin sen verran, että tykkäät myös ilmeisesti Amorphiksesta, tuli musiikista mieleen, että oli kiva kuunnella tätä Korpiklaanin kipaletta samalla kun katsoin sun hienoja töitä!…
Wolverica Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2016   General Artist
Korpiklaanilla on kyllä monia hyviä biisejä, varsinkin nämä rauhallisemmat tunnelmapalat. =) 
Shaman-bändin (se Korpiklaanin alkuaikojen kokoonpano) musasta tykkään kans, saamen kielen ja folk metallin yhdistelmä toimii mielenkiintoisella tavalla. Ja kyllä, Amorphis on hieno bändi!
