With a rock solid vocal line up and catchy choruses that make them interesting to both rock fans and new listeners, the Finnish melodic metal band CLEAR VISION was born some cold, early spring days at the studio of Teemu Aalto. Building up to a full EP, they are now releasing their debut single Eve of the End, featuring Ella Tepponen.
Clear Vision is a six piece melodic metal outfit consisting of Mikko Laihanen (drums), Jaakko Mäntymaa (Vocals), Antti Röksä (Rhythm Guitar), Mika Koskimies (Clean Vocals), Johnny Texas (Bass), Petri Paronen (Rhythm/ Lead Guitar and Orchestrations), born and raised in Finland and for the time being based in the southern parts of the country.
Talking about their songs, Paronen says: ”In many ways all the songs have one theme, which can be described as life difficulties. But still after a lot is lost in a journey of life there still lays hope at the end of the tunnel. All the songs are personal to me as a writer, Jaakko who wrote most of the lyrics pretty much read my mind and put in words what was hiding in my mind.”
Also to mention for their part in creating the cold nordic landscape of onrushing energy that is the music of Clear Vision, is Teemu Aalto (recording, mixing, producing), well known for his magic touch that he infused in every single track of the upcoming new EP, Grammy nominated mastering engineer Svante Forsbäck (mastering) and singer Ella Tepponen who is featuring on the bands debut single Eve Of the End.
Other than being a very skilled and experienced group – most band members have had music as a big part of their lives for more than 20 years – they offer a unique sound with rock solid vocal line up and catchy choruses, making them interesting to experinced rock fans as well as audienced new to the scene.
