OUT NOW! Jääportit ‎– Kauan Koskematon / Halki Lumisen Metsän CD / Old Captain / Faust

Two cult recordings from 1998 / 99 of pure Nordic beauty for the first time on CD! Icy frostbitten portals of the early years are now once again open! Jääportit is a Finnish dark ambient / neoclassical project centered around Tuomas M. Mäkelä and has been active since 1997. ‘Halki lumisen metsän’ material is minimalist alike Mortiis, ranging from deep, cloud-like drones to almost oppressive militaristic percussion and harmonies, while ‘Kauan Koskematon’ is majestic yet mournful, a forever milestone in dungeon synth winter epic tradition of the 1990s’. Calm and tranquil yet bewitching and mesmerizing winter ambient. A 6-panel matte-laminated Digipak with original images including the front cover by Aslak Tolonen (Nest) limited to 300 copies. First 50 copies come with an exclusive front cover A3 folded poster.
