The Roaring Frost
Waltz from The Masquerade Suite
After stints in afro pop, Kari Ikonen’s Finnish background has now drawn him to the wintertime. Spaces of biting cold and horror, of inhumanity and transience – these are the fundamentals of the Ikonen Trio’s third studio album.
The band visit ghost towns, disassemble famous waltz motives and enter wondrous shadow world. Into their fifth year, the depth of the trio’s commitment to extremes remains remarkable.
