There’s no dark metal like Finnish dark metal. Mustan Kuun Lapset are back with their unique blend of melody and heavy riffing.
The new single presents the band's new drummer Kalle Takalo. Kalle joined after the original drummer Mikko Hautala stepped aside in Spring 2017. Musically, 'Ikaros' continues along the path that the previous album, Saatto (2017), started and also gives a hint about the direction that the band is heading.
Lyrical, themes revolve around death and the desperation of life. It might be impossible to prevent that the higher you aim to achieve, the harder you will finally fall.
