New finnish death metal band Noutaja is releasing their debut EP thins autumn and now they present the first single from the upcoming release. 

Pekka Johansson from Noutaja backgrounds the single: “All I had to do was throw out the idea that we should probably play some death metal. The band was immediately there and working from day one! It really felt like we were like 15 year old dudes making music that is larger than life. The vibes were packed with energy and I feel we captured that on the record.Born onto Hawthorns was a logical choice as the first single because it was also the first song we ever wrote together. No holds barred from the first riff on, which incidentally was the first Noutaja riff ever played! You don’t have to be a super genius to hear some of the influences being channeled from our hands to your home speakers!This is the real thing. Out of love towards the game.”

Collectively we are Noutaja. (That is Finnish for The Grim Reaper.) We are not young, so everyone in the band has already done cool and succesful stuff. Many of those things together in some formation on another in the last 15 years. We are not old either. But we are hungry to make music. We love 90’s Death Metal and we want to make music that we feel passionate about. What would you imagine we would sound like? We sound like every band you thought was good back in the day. Only better.Also we know that in life you get zero points for nostalgia.So now is good. Scars and all.
