Noutaja - Born Unto Hawthorns

Finnish death metal band Noutaja have released their debut single 'Born Unto Hawthorns'!


New Finnish death metal band Noutaja present their first single 'Born Unto Hawthorns' from their upcoming debut EP that will be released this Autumn. Noutaja are a new band but that doesn't mean the members are new to the scene. Individually they have worked on some cool things over the years and a few of them have even worked together previously. The band are inspired by their love for 90's death metal and you can definitely hear that nostalgic influence on their music. The name Noutaja is actually Finnish for Grim Reaper and I feel like that name suits them perfectly.

"All I had to do was throw out the idea that we should probably play some death metal. The band was immediately there and working from day one! It really felt like we were like 15 year old dudes making music that is larger than life. The vibes were packed with energy and I feel we captured that on the record. Born Unto Hawthorns was a logical choice as the first single because it was also the first song we ever wrote together. No holds barred from the first riff on, which incidentally was the first Noutaja riff ever played! You don't have to be a super genius to hear some of the influences being channeled from our hands to your home speakers! This is the real thing. Out of the love towards the game." - (Pekka Johansson, Bassist)
