MOKOMA's Latest CD Named INFERNO Magazine's 'Album Of The Year'

Finnish thrash/metal act MOKOMA's latest album, "Tämän Maailman Ruhtinaan Hovi" ("The Court of This World's Emperor), has been named Inferno magazine's 2004 "Album of the Year". The year-end Inferno list was determined via a poll of the magazine's editors and contributing writers. Inferno is Finland's leading metal magazine and is said to be one of the biggest metal publications in Scandinavia. According to Inferno's Tero Salonen, "Everyone got to name 10 albums and every album equaled one vote. Hence there are so many albums that have equal amount of votes. The Top Three is quite clear though."

MOKOMA's second independent album, "Tämän Maailman Ruhtinaan Hovi", has reportedly sold 10,000 copies since it came out earlier this year. The same act had one of Inferno's top 10 albums of 2003 with their previous CD, "Kurimus" ("Maelstrom").

The full list of Inferno's 2004 "Albums of the Year" can be found in the December 2004 issue — on stands December 7.
