Ville Laihiala, best known for his work with Finnish metal elite acts such SENTENCED and POISONBLACK, releases a new song “Hammering” with his band S-TOOL.
“Hammering” is the third breeze of the upcoming album, which is being recorded at the moment and to be released this autumn via Playground Music Scandinavia.
Listen ”Hammering” on Spotify:
S-TOOL was formed in 2015 and has released two singles that attracted quite an interest in the rock and metal world and radio stations. Compared to Laihiala’s previous projects, S-TOOL is more straight-forward and more metal, but you can surely recognize Laihiala’s signature writing style, by bringing the melodies in metal.
The band consists of Ville Laihiala, guitarist Sami Leppikangas and bass player Kimmo Hiltunen (Lullacry), and drummer Aksu Hanttu (Entwine).
“The song kinda reflects how this modern world is affecting us and leading us towards destruction; it’s very honest, like the ‘voice of human’s conscience”, says Ville.
