Suotana, a six-piece act from far up the north of Finland in Rovaniemi (the original hometown of Beherit), has been in existence since 2005. The first thing an experienced melo-Death Metal consumer will notice is that Suotana sounds deceptively much like Kalmah, especially their early material. Suotana's mix of keyboard driven, melodic Death and Black Metal (mainly vocally), is very much like what you'll find on Kalmah's albums. Their songs are professionally written, in which every single detail has got some extra attention basically, just to sort of ensure the end result could be as striking and intense as possible. At that, they have also succeeded in creating a powerful wholeness that will obviously be like a little sack of weekend candies for many fans of the genre.

In short, Frostrealm is a prime example of melo-Death Metal done well, and will undoubtedly appeal to fans of Kalmah, but also Children of Bodom and Catamenia.

And just one more thing: do not let the first opening riffs of "Trail of Abandon" fool you. Nope, you won't get to hear any Slayer songs on this record.
