Vainaja is a three-headed metal band from Finland. Taking influences from early 90's death metal and doom, their debut album "Kadotetut" is one of the heaviest records ever made in the Finnish language. Besides the crushing riffs and dark melodies, the album's concept is based on encrypted true events from the past.

Not much is known about the events that took place in the 19th century rural Finland. Traditional lore tells of an evil cult inducing chaos among parishioners of old Finnish religions. Evidence of such sinful formation have been gathered from church records and filmographies.

Traditionally, only three cultists are scarcely identified. The local preacher "Wilhelm", the church cantor "Kristian" and the gravedigger "Aukusti" seem to have been the main malefactors. Adjacent to the local church, these churchmen practiced their own crooked religion in the church cantor's vast mansion. Besides blasphemy, the cult performed sacrificial murder and enslaved villagers to be buried alive.

Further evidence of the nefarious activities was recently found among the now ruined cantor's mansion. Up to this date, only little has been known about the cult's actions, since most of their belongings were burned together with the culprits. As a matter of fact, it is known that the cultists were ultimately condemned to be scorched to death upon a church altar.

What was found in the ruins has not been revealed until now. Consorted as the main discovery, an incredibly well preserved book contains sermons written by the preacher Wilhelm. It seems that these twisted chants have led the cult to the series of murder, sacrifice and conspiracy. The aged texts and hymns are now carefully transcribed in the songs of "Kadotetut", the full-length album of Vainaja. The concept album adds unprecedented details to the controversial and encrypted story.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. But never forgotten.

Taken from the forthcoming album Kadotetut, out on Svart Records in rather early 2014:

I'm not sold yet, but out of respect for Mordicus (one of them plays in this band), I will give them a proper chance when the album is out.

I don't know which one, but it's mentioned on Mordicus' facebook if you scroll down to April 2012 of the posts.
Same page tells us that they are planning (?) to do somesort of LP+ shirt combo for the Dances From The Left reissue.
