" there is bleak grandeur as well as crushing desolation and blinding ferocity in these compositions, and that’s part of what makes them so powerfully attractive."

"Within the bands brew of darkness and chaos are some clear elements of modern, dissonant flowing black metal. But the vocal approach contains something more primitive and savage..."
- J Andrew Zalucky, Decibel Magazine

" It’s insane to think that this is Väki’s debut release but the two songs present on “Kirous” give you mere taste of wha’s surely to come from the band. Excellent!"
-This Noise is Ours

"8 out of 10"
-Occult Black Metal Zine

A whirlwind of haunting and spectral shadows, Finland's Vaki ushers in a triumphant return to the cold atmospheres of the past while forging new realms in the great void. Chaos melded perfectly with a focused intent to punish, only so much that you are taken to the brink of, without fully realizing, self-annihilation. Tradition waging war against innovation for the unholy wretched soul of black metal. Submission is the only allowance.

Väki define themsleves as "a musical act embodying the profound manifestations of death, impurity and chaos, dedicated to capture the darkests aspects of reality."

They continue, stating:
“We strive to create both emotionally and technically strong musical pieces with influential core message. Our music examines aspects of our existence that revolve around suffering, depression, hate and melancholy. Exploration and endorsement of these aspects enables growth and gain of a deeper understanding of the universe.
Embracing death, we speak to our audience through our art, awakening the spirits and archetypes of death.”

Having self-released their 2 song demo digitally, via iTunes, Spotify, etc, on October13th, Väki were quickly spotted by us here at Redefining Darkness. We enjoyed the demo so much, that we collectively decided to put a very special, limited edition cassette of their demo, "Kirous", with very special packaging created by a fellow Fin at Primeval Vision ( Each cassette package was silk-screened individually by hand on matte black cardboard. It came out absolutely stunning! See for yourself in the pictures provided.

I - Verses of Death

Cleanse this world from filth
Sow the seed of fear into our souls
Let there be death

Rotten flesh
Coagulated blood
Spoiled bread and wine

Set our table
Toast to the end of this world

Our lord - Death
Our saviour - Morbid flesh
Messiah - Mind numbed by insanity
Redeemer - Herald of fury

Destroy everything untrue from this world
Repellent life, spurious liberty
Tear this sick mind from its bowl
Release this empty and worthless soul from its slavery
Track Name: Kirous
Translated to English...

II - The Curse

Our legacy will be left here
The curse for us to bear
Only in oblivion
In death
We can rest

I lift my head up
I am cursed
I will never gain peace
I have made my choice
To death
To oblivion

Keep the silent crows on my side
Lay down my hands now
Chant the rituals for the eternal abyss
The flame burning in my heart

After my passing
There remains
Only the curse
My only legacy
My silent companion

In the cold silent emptiness
My resting place
Forsake me
Forget me
