KIUAS' 'Lustdriven' Cracks Finnish Top 10

"Lustdriven", the fourth album from Finnish power metallers KIUAS, has entered the official chart in the band's home country at position No. 8.

In other news, KIUAS has announced that it is in the process of filming a video for the "Lustdriven" song "Of Love, Lust and Human Nature".

Released on March 31 via Spinefarm Records, "Lustdriven" was produced at Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki by Janne Joutsenniemi, who previously worked with the band on the pre-production of their last album, "The New Dark Age". Mikko Karmila mixed the album at Finnvox studios while the mastering duties were handled by Svante Forsb├Ąck at Chartmakers.

"Lustdriven" track listing:

01. Kiuassault
02. Cry Little Angel
03. Of Lust, Love and Human Nature
04. Aftermath
05. Lights Are Many
06. The Visionary
07. Heart and Will
08. The Quickening
09. Summer's End
10. Winter's Sting

"On this new album, we've kept the most aggressive elements of KIUAS," says guitarist Mikko Salovaara. "Everything is very raw and in your face. At the same time, however, we've pushed the epic, orchestral side to new heights, and although you'll find some of our fastest and heaviest songs here, we've tried to maintain a real sense of melody throughout."

"The New Dark Age" was released in the U.K. via Spinefarm Records, accompanied by reissues of the first two outings, "The Spirit of Ukko" and "Reformation". All three come with bonus tracks and expanded artwork.

"The New Dark Age" entered the official chart in the band's home country back in March 2008 at position No. 10.
