Vanha, meaning “Old” in finnish, came to be on one summers evening in 2016.
Originally formed by Jan Johansson (Vocals/Guitars/Keyboards), as a sideproject to explore the most depressive, darkest & heaviest of sounds. As the first 2 songs of a demo was made, “Read The Scars”, Jesse Oinas joined on drums.Later on, getting a deal with Black Lion Records, a full production was made, called “Within The Mist of Sorrow”.
7 tracks of death, agony, heartbreaking darkness & depression. Heavy hard hitting drums, roaring bass & guitars, the beauty of piano, various strings, & pipe-organs, all combined with dark growling and clean vocals.
This is the dark debut of Vanha. To be continued…”
