Finland’s power trio Tyrantti releases new single “Aja!”

Helsinki-based traditional heavy metal outfit Tyrantti releases new single “Aja!” on Wednesday 22 April 2020. Aja! (“Drive!”) is the first single of the band’s upcoming 2nd album.

“Aja!” overwhelms with 3 minutes of Tyrantti’s signature combination of fast guitar licks, relentless drumbeats and ridiculously high-pitched vocal harmonies – sung in Finnish. The band’s lead singer and bassist Nahka-Sami insists they are proud to be the anomaly amongst the traditionally super melancholic Finnish metal scene:

Some people call us the “Finnish Judas Priest” – it’s an honour, as they are a great band and inspiration – but with Aja! we’re aiming to showcase what makes Tyrantti’s music unique: we play melodic heavy metal that flirts with the old school, but still sounds fresh. No other band in Finland really sounds like us, and we like it.

Sung completely in Finnish, Aja! (“Drive/Charge!” in English), is a song about freedom, breaking the chains and uniting against a common enemy.

It was written as an anthem for breaking out of a shitty situation. We didn’t quite expect its message to be this relevant though, Nahka-Sami sighs.

Tyrantti broke the limits of the NWOTHM underground with their breathtaking first single Tulipyörä in 2017. The Helsinki-based power trio released their self-titled debut album on 8th February 2019 through Playground Music Finland. The album hit #6 on the national physical album charts in Finland, receiving nothing but praise from media around the globe. Tyrantti has toured with the likes of Battle Beast, Uriah Heep and Nervosa.
