Juha Jyrkäs is a Finnish musical pioneer, who has replaced an electric guitar and bass with electric kantele and bass kantele in a metal album, first to do so a in a world. Kantele is an ancient Finnish string-instrument. He is also a talented fantasy and horror writer in Finland. Jyrkäs wrote Finnish lyrics to folk metal band Korpiklaani between the years 2006-2012.
His previous bands are Poropetra and Tevana3. Since the spring 2008, Jyrkäs has played many solo gigs in Finland, Estonia and in Hungary. Sydämeni kuusipuulle is the debute album of Jyrkäs. No electric guitars, bass, keyboards or drums used on this album. The result is still the real pagan heavy metal!
The lyrics are about Finnish mythology, nature mysticism, occultism, human feelings and sex. It was first published at year 2019 with a limited MC edition, but in the year 2020 Italian label Earth And Sky Productions re-published it first digitally then, at 12.2.2021 as a CD.
