The Game

In the herd of sleepwalkers,
I’m the one running

We released our debut album The Game on 19th of May, 2006. Album contains ten rock tunes where we combined heavyness of metal to rock, with melodic emotionality and catchy hooks.

The important factor to the overall mood of the record is Matara Music’s own studio, which is located in Northern Finland on an abandoned farm. The absolute solitude of Matara provided a unique atmosphere for the recordings. When we went to record the vocals in the middle of darkest Finnish winter, we were told that two wolves had been seen on the studio yard two days earlier. So the recording environment really went well with the mood of the lyrics: back to nature, back to darkness, into the cold.
