"Of Lust, Love and Human Nature", the new video from Finnish power metallers KIUAS, can be viewed below. The clip was directed by Markus Nieminen of Routafilmi. The song comes off the band's fourth album, "Lustdriven", which entered the official chart in the band's home country at position No. 8.
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 Forsbäck at Chartmakers.

"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.
