Forging elements of melodic black and death metal, i Helvete has released a new single and lyric video Paratiisi. The song is the third single from the concept album Yksi Yhteinen Yhteiskunta, which will be released next month. Earlier this fall, the band released the singles Uuden Ajan ABC and Suuri Puhdistus, for which a music video was also shot.

The album is about a movement that sees the direction of contemporary society as doomed. Radical changes must be made as soon as possible – and not everyone can survive it. Paratiisi paints a new time after the Big Bang, where only the chosen people are left.

The band’s guitarist Manu Kujala comments on the birth of the song:

“The intro of Paratiisi is the traditional fingerpicking that I do when I develop songs. I have dozens of recordings on my phone, some better than others. Usually these recordings don’t end up further from my phone, but this time I gave it to Aleksi and Tapio to work on. The end result is better than I could have hoped for!”

Bassist Tapio Holappa continues:

“The intro written by Manu immediately sounded like a potential chorus and I started to think about its continuation. Together with Aleksi, we found the atmosphere and finished structure of the song pretty well during one songwriting session. After that we only needed a solo composed by Manu. I was a little nervous about how others would accept the idea of an instrumental inspired by, for example, Massive Attack from the middle part, but it sank in well for the guys. However, in Teemu’s opinion, it sounded more like a Porcupine Tree.”

The concept album Yksi Yhteinen Yhteiskunta will be released 24th of November. The album can be pre-ordered at Inverse Store or Recordshop X.
