Hengenvaara 06:38
Hengenvaara - lyrics Tuuli vihloo läpi öisen oksiston Sataa niskaan jäätä Tumma varjo kulkee edessämme tiellä Karmii selkäpiitä Mietin onko jonkun meistä Lähdettävä tänään täältä CHORUS: Usvaan peittyy maa Suo sammalta kuljettaa Suolla liikkuu maa Virvatulet houkuttaa Harhaan johdattaa Kauas kannattaa Pois hukuttaa Näin unessa kolme perhosta vuoteeni yllä Jäin niitä katsomaan Antaa niiden lentää vaan Mustaa ja valkoista Ikuisessa unessa 2 x CHORUS ____________________________________ Mortal Danger - lyrics translated in English Wind blows through the nocturnal branches Ice falls on my neck Dark shadow moves ahead on the road It gives me the creeps I wonder if one of us Has to leave from here tonight CHORUS: Mist covers the earth Swamp carries the moss Swamp moves the ground Will-o'-the-wisps tempt Lead astray Carry far away Drown away Asleep I saw three butterflies upon my bed I remained to behold them Let them fly Black and white In the eternal sleep 2 x CHORUS
Sudenkuoppa 08:20


The essence of Jääportit feels intense, strong and polymorphous. Familiar feeling of peaceful ambient dream from the earlier releases has been broken down to reveal the austere reality around us. It’s hard to fit the album in conventional categories, because it’s kind of a musical labyrinth, definitely worth of exploring.
