I was going to save this for tomorrow, but what the fuck. This day at NCS has shaped up to be more nasty and demented than usual, so I’m just gonna go with the flow.
So, there’s this band from Finland called Medeia. Yes, I know I have a Finnish metal fixation. I’ll eventually let go of that — when my fuckin’ corpse has turned blue and cold. Sorry, but that’s just the way it is. Anyway, Medeia are from Finland, which means, without knowing anything else, there’s about an 80% chance their music will be awesome.
And so it is — a powerhouse blast of death, thrash, and power-groove metal all rolled up into a nice package with a bit of metalcore sprinkled on top (thanks mainly to keyboardist Laura Dziadulewicz’s clean vocals). What’s that you say? You’re reminding me that I wasn’t going to allow anything clean in the house today. Well, I’m not. Because I don’t hear any cleans on the video I’m gonna show you after the jump.
And the video is just nutzo in so many ways I don’t even no where to begin describing it. It’s been out since May, so I suppose there’s a chance you’ve already seen it. It’s insane enough to have made the rounds. But I didn’t see it until TheMadIsraeli threw me the link last night. You may laugh, you may cry, you may want to bust shit up, you may experience the full range of human emotions, but you should definitely watch this (after the jump).
By the way, if it helps sell you on the idea, the vocalist for Medeia is Keijo Niinimaa — who fronts both Nasum and Rotten Sound.
The song is the title track from Medeia’s third album, Abandon All (2011).
Hell, I might as well throw in some more videos that TheMadIsraeli showed me from this band. They’re all almost as entertaining as that one for “Abandon All”:
These guys are bringing the triple B
Brutal Bear Beatdown
That’s some real bear metal right there.
Finland might as well be called “Every citizen is in an awesome metal band” land
I’ve mainly listened to these guys cuz of their awsome vids. The music is a plus. It’s not revolutionary, but still good. I do have to say their live performance was pretty damn sick when they supported Omnium Gatherum. Would definately pay good money to see them again. It’s a shame their tour with CoB won’t come to my town.
Also, I could’ve sworn Medeia has been mentioned here more than a couple of times. Guess I was wrong!
Odd that you say that, because I thought they seemed familiar, too, at first. I don’t know how I missed them after all this time. I don’t think anyone mentioned them even when we were doing that Finland Tribute Week series a year ago.
That was a whole year ago? Feels like a couple of months.
Probably because we mention Finnish bands constantly. 🙂
Some where a furry came all over itself.
We need to get the stuffed “animals” in Skeletonwitch’s video “Bringer of Death” to meet these bears in real life and see what happens. We could PPV it mma style. Maybe bring in some zombies for shits and giggles.
Absolutely. And resurrect the guys from “Abandon All”, and load ’em up with more booze and machine guns. PAR-TAY!
Maybe this is where you remember Medeia from:

You clearly haven’t watched enough furry porn.
That could be the cure for confusion. But I’m worried about the side effects.
