Stunning!

:cheers:

I have been a big fan of Marco Hietala for a very long time since I am a HUGE fan of Nightwish. I have only listened to snippets of his first solo album.......but I am excited for this second album, 'Pyre Of The Black Heart', which will be released January 24, 2020.

I wil definitely listen to the debut solo, "Mustan Sydämen Rovio" .

I am listening to the debut now (2 songs into the album)....It's a strong album. It's not in English, but that only ads to the ambiance. I will probably do a "first impression" and try to get translations of the song titles........

01. Kiviä (05:14)
02. Isäni Ääni (04:37)
03. Tähti, Hiekka Ja Varjo (05:01)
04. Kuolleiden Jumalten Poika (04:42)
05. Laulu Sinulle (07:09)
06. Minä Olen Tie (05:05)
07. Juoksen Rautateitä (03:50)
08. Vapauden Kuolinmarssi (05:02)
09. Unelmoin Öisin (05:38)
10. Totuus Vapauttaa (05:43)

After a bit more research, the 2020 album will be an English version of the debut. The debut was an exclusive release in Finland and is in Finnish. The song in the OP of this thread is the first track on the album.

Kiviä translates to "Stones".

Here is the Tracklist for Pyre of the Black Heart. The album cover will be the same as the Finnish release with an added "Marko Hietala" on the cover.
