Finland’s Crimfall is truly a special band which draws influences from many styles and manages to blend them together to create music that is epic, emotive and powerful without ever making it feel like it is just cluttered with random ideas. After 6 six years, they are back with their most amazing album to date, Amain, and we have the pleasure to bring you this interview with Jakke Viitala and Mikko Häkkinen.
Congratulations on your new album. Amain has been out for some time now. How has the reception been so far?
Jakke: “The reception has been very good. Both in Finland and abroad. The people and reviewers who have been following our career since “as the path unfolds” have all agreed that AMAIN is our strongest and best album so far.”
