Finnish metallers SAATTUE have inked a deal with Spikefarm Records. The group's debut album, "Jäähyvästi", which includes seven doomy tracks, will be completed during September at D-Studios in Klaukkala, Finland. An early 2008 release is expected.Formed in 2001, SAATTUE ("procession" in Finnish) released its first self-financed EP, "Kivisydän", in 2004 and its follow-up, "Ikiuneen", in 2006. According to a press release, SAATTUE "combines [its] native language Finnish [with] dark, raw and emotional musical elements. SAATTUE's roots are deeply in doom metal and other extreme metal genres, but they've also gathered influences from dark rock groups such as the Finnish cult rock act MANA MANA. Typical trademarks of the SAATTUE sound are oppressive heaviness, rawness, atmospheric passages and ear-catching chorus melodies." For more information, visit www.myspace.com/saattue.
