Full Length Review: Vaino "Metsänpeitto" (Independent) by Devin Joseph Meaney

Band: Vaino
Location: Jyväskylä
Country: Finland
Genre: Black metal
Full Length: Metsänpeitto
Format: Digital album
Label: Independent
Release date: January 14, 2022
“Metsänpeitto” is an album my friend Lorne (the mastermind behind Cernunnous) sent me in a text. Hailing from Finland, Vaino provides a blast of eerie coldness that somehow also comes across as upbeat, and I have no problem stating that every minute of this album is highly enjoyable and filled with positive energy. Premiered on January 12 2022, “Metsänpeitto” is one of the better albums I have heard so far this year and I plan to return to it time and time again.
With elegantly played guitars, formidable percussion, and tight and rasping vocal work, I can see this one in the collection of black metal fans worldwide. You can snag a copy in various formats at Wolfspell Records, or if you just want to check it out, you can do so on Facebook, YouTube, and Bandcamp.
Featuring seven tracks in just over half an hour this is the perfect length for a casual listen. Not as short as a demo but not as long as a lot of black metal full lengths, “Metsänpeitto” spits forth just enough head banging and musical excellence to make Vaino known as a prime contender in the black metal scenes globally…so without further rambling I will just suggest giving this audio masterpiece a listen. It just might brighten your day…it for sure brightened mine. –Devin Joseph Meaney
