Reviews of Sa7urnus

The Blake's latest album "Sa7urnus" has received a bunch of positive reviews, here is a sample in english:

"Blake is fine-tuning their approach to bluesy stoner rock and they are really getting some potent and catchy material out of it. It can be argued that Blake is the top dog in the Finnish stoner rock market today, and this album is proff-positive of that."

Biography

Blake’s first and foremost inspiration is 70’s style riff tradition, ingeniously complemented with heavy duty roots blues and topped with progressive psychedelia. Once formed in 2001, Blake has released four highly appreciated albums and the latest one, named “Sa7urnus” after the planet Saturn, was released through Stay Heavy Records on 12th November 2008.

Besides the extraordinarily intense studio sessions, Blake has also stacked up a tally of hundreds of gigs. Namely, the band has performed with various groups such as Black Label Society (USA), Cathedral (UK), Therapy? (IE), Mustasch (SWE) and Iggy Pop (USA). On top of that, Blake featured in HIM's Helldone Festival line up in consecutive years of 2006 and 2007.

Furthermore, the history of Blake contains plenty of praise and reputation. Bam Margera used three Blake songs in his previous "Viva La Spring Break" TV show. The singer of Therapy?, Andy Cairns, nominated Blake as the next big heir of the Black Sabbath tradition.

The lineup:
Aaro Seppovaara: vocals and guitar
Sami Hassinen: guitar
Antero Aunesluoma: bass
Ville Siuruainen: drums
