Taivaanranta 04:25
Snowfall Under the pale grey sky we roam And in the river we drown Beneath the freezing moon we walk And in the wind we bow Taivaanrantaan, Ukkonen Suru kantaa erilleen Snow, bury me Lay my bones to the deep Bury me Taivaanrantaan, suru kantaa Snowfall Open the gates For the wolf of North Embrace the sleeping sea Beyond the waves Across the silent stream Where we will meet Taivaanrantaan, Ukkonen Suru kantaa erilleen And in the river we drown Snow, bury me Lay my bones to the deep Bury me Taivaanrantaan, suru kantaa Pohjoiseen

Ukko 04:32
Bring down the ash like rain Bring down the heavens Bring down the flames I watch the moon wade into shallow water Embracing me as the shadows gather Bring down the ash like rain Bring down the heavens Bring down the flames Heaven ablaze Come down with burning wings Blood on our hands Will be our offering Ukko, Ukko Blood will be our offering Ukko, Ukko Blood will be our offering I watch the birth of a hundred wolves In the blood I see the sun engulfed Bring down the ash like rain Bring down the heavens Bring down the flames Separate skin from bone Reign of a hundred wolves Heaven ablaze Come down with burning wings Blood on our hands Will be our offering Ukko, Ukko Blood will be our offering Ukko, Ukko Blood will be our offering Kehdosta hautaan Me hiljaa Kuljetaan Sanasi tuhkaa Tyhjyyteen raikaa

Veri 03:37
Laulu rantaan Laineiden yli kantaa Hetken hauraan Mustaan maahan hautaan Yli synkän järven ja palavan maan Sanasi hämärään soi Veri seiso kuin seinä Meri mustassa kivessä To the ocean Our fate all along The serpent's sons We're born alone Meren rauhaan Käy yksin syntynyt Eternal darkness Lead us to thunder To the ocean Our fate all along The serpent's sons We're born alone To be frozen Orphan of North The serpent's sons We die alone Blood of the viper Fill up our veins Eternal darkness Lead us to thunder To the ocean Our fate all along The serpent's sons We're born alone To be frozen Orphan of North The serpent's sons We die alone

Uhri 03:41
Ride with us spirit of North Through the longest night The call of thunder Rise with flames sons of the dark Through the longest night The call of thunder Hunger of the wolf Under the blackening skies Leave no one alive Oh black river Black river
 We drown in your tears
 In your cold embrace Black river We burn in your waves
 The call of thunder Quiet stream carry my soul From daylight to dark Through you into twilight Hunger of the wolf Under the blackening skies Leave no one alive Oh black river Black river
 We drown in your tears
 In your cold embrace Black river We burn in your waves
 In your cold embrace We will drown in your tears Oh black river We will burn in your waves Oh black river We will drown in your tears

about

UKKO, the second album by ATLAS, is a step in a new direction for the band as they introduce a new sonic palette, drawing inspiration from Finnish folk music, poetry and incorporating it with the dark soundscapes and dynamic songwriting that the band is known for. Lyrically and thematically the UKKO-album explores themes of death, healing, rebirth, and faith with English and Finnish languages mixed seamlessly together. The album name UKKO honors the father figure of the band who passed away less than a year ago; a devastating tragedy for its members. UKKO is also a euphemism of the Finnish pre-christian mythological god of the sky, thunder, weather, and harvest.

"This is our way of honoring those we've loved and lost. Heavy looping rhythms, huge percussions, haunting atmospheres, dark soundscapes, and ominous melodies create an album that celebrates northern spirits. UKKO is a blend of something ancient combined with a cold and harsh perspective of these stray modern days. You could say that the album is a sacrifice to the old Finnish pagan gods." - (Tuomas Kurikka / guitar).

The album is mixed and mastered by Buster Odeholm (Vildhjarta, Oceano, Humanity's Last Breath, Born of Osiris) who brings his unique approach and sound to the album.
