Sawol [Death/Doom]

Post by Guest on Thu Oct 30, 2014 3:13 pm

Anybody heard these guys? Their album Through Soil And Skin came out four years ago; I found them last night and downloaded the album from Amazon today (physical copies unavailable at reasonable prices). Searching the forums didn't turn up any results, though there should be a little mark over the a, which my keyboard is unable to recreate.

Doom is usually hit-or-miss for me, even when mixed with Death. But this is GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD STUFF. Rockin Loud

I always felt that doom loses something when mixed with death metal. Just my opinion.  I know there are many fans of death/doom.

I love Sawol!  Very good band.  I really hope they make more tunes.  I also highly recommend their single Time To Walk which is available for digital download only.  It's one of my favorite songs of theirs.  It's a little more up-beat than most of their full-length and has an interesting atmosphere.

Also, their demo is very well-worth picking up (if you can find it) too.  I was lucky enough to get a copy from Divine Metal Distro I believe.

Monkey Biz  It's my favorite genre...  So majestic, tragic, heavy, dark, beautiful...  Ah, makes me smile just thinking about it.  Very Happy

The question is: how do you pronounce their name? SAH-wohl?

That's how I've always said it, but I have no idea...

I'm guessing he wrote something and then later changed his mind and it was too late to delete his post.

But what more perfect pairing is there than doom and death? Nobody's invented Gloom Metal yet. tongue

It's hard to explain. I love the big fat, Black Sabbath/Trouble type guitar sound. For some reason, the death/doom bands don't capture that same sound or atmosphere. I've got nothing against those bands, but let me have my Nomad Son, Forsaken, Faith, Veni Domine, or just about anything with Victor Griffin on it.

Yes, I suppose so.
Though my comment was joke. "Doom & Gloom"?

I was fortunate enough to see Sáwol perform at NordicFest in 2009.  Enjoyed their set a lot.  Two of the members (brothers Pekka and Matti Taina) are also in a band called Sotahuuto, death metal, and a band called Enshrouding, black/death metal.  Check those bands out.  You won't be disappointed.

Btw, I asked Matti how to pronounce the band’s name, and even he wasn’t sure.

In the album booklet.  Cool   I read them a while ago when I got the CD and remember being especially impressed at how well thought-out, heart-felt, intelligent, and well written they were.

I meant other than the booklet. Razz Don't have it, and can't spend $58 on it.

Resurrecting old thread... Check out three new Sáwol songs. I couldn't post external links (new member rule), but they can be found in Youtube. Also available in Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Amazon, Tidal, etc...

New songs are called Green Seat, Living Stone and Desire is my name.
