Yes, we’re back from the wonderland that’s called Japan. It was truly an amazing trip! We got a lot of new friends and bumped into some really old friends, too.
To read more about our trip, please see our Facebook page or our Twitter page.
Now, as we promised, it’s the right time to write some new songs. This is a very fascinating phase because no matter how many thoughts you have about new material, the songs usually have a different direction. In other words, new songs usually take you by surprise.

music: Kylmänen & Lammassaari
lyrics: Veteläinen & Kylmänen & Puolakanaho
Inside the cradle without the sun,
On frozen tides he tries to carry on,
By a mistake it was all gone
Still seeking the twin for the tainted swan,
Who glows in all the shades of grey,
But he is facing the lightless dawn again
Small hours’ mist,
Upon the frozen land,
Weariness in the wayfarer’s eyes,
No time to catch his breath
He walks alone recalling,
The omen of the swan from his dreams,
Wading through the gloomy backwoods,
By the surging darkened stream
New sun once rose behind the fell,
Brought her sisters down to the earth,
They called the Maiden Saivo,
To guide the swan to the furthest shore
He knows the signs of the sullen skies,
And rhymes to open her sleeping eyes,
Just can’t let go of his dream and start to live alone
And here we are our beloved fans: We would like to present the first official video “Swan Saivo” from the upcoming album and wish you all the happiest new year 2013!
Are you prepared to step down below the dark waves… Down to Saivo?
We are proud to present our seventh album, named Saivon Lapsi. It will be released early next year. Before that, the brand new single (as well as the music video) “Swan Saivo” will be released.
