Finnish melodic metal band Ikirouta has released their new single “Aika” today. It is their 15th single release so far. Songwriter, keyboardist and guitar player Teemu Kuosmanen backgrounds the new song: “It is about the limits of human life. And that you should not leave things undone. You should seize the opportunities you get. We only live once and you should spend that opportunity to do things that are important to you. Compared to previous singles ‘Aika’ tightens the screw to faster and harder. However it is really melodic song with a catchy chorus. Personally I’m a bit nervous about the music video as it’s the first one I’ve ever made.”

Ikirouta is a melodic metal band from the northern Finnish city of Kajaani. The band was founded in 2020 as the former SoulHealer guitar player Teemu Kuosmanen and singer Jori Kärki got an idea of a melodic heavy metal band that sings in Finnish. Drummer Jani Partanen was asked to join the band and the first single Vanki was recorded so that Teemu also played the bass and keyboards. As the first single got really good feedback the band decided to create more music. Next single was still made with the same line-up as the first but after that bass player Jere Pellikka joined Ikirouta. 

Keyboard solo on the latest single is played by the audio engineer Janne Tolsa (Turmion Kätilöt, Tarot) who also co-produced the track and was responsible of mixing and mastering the track.
