Happy 100th birthday, Finland!

You really should become composer for movies. Because this music is like from high-budget movie about Vikings and their Gods. I really love this :)
Slavic Pride
Epic! I recommend everyone to read the national epic of Finland: The Kalevala!
Lucas Stchur
Oh my God I feel like I can rule the goddamn world when I listen to this!!!!!! Some of the most epic music I’ve ever heard!!!!!
WOW, what a powerful stunt! I remember we discussed some years ago about the possibility whether you could/would compose something of Kalevala. What an amazing result! The visuals are breathtaking, stunning, a unity with the music, like not from this world. Did you make them, too? I like the parts best, when the autumn leaves are slowly floating down. The best slowmo I've seen in a long time. And what dramas happen up in the sky - simply awesome! Loads of thanks, Antti - you made (not only) my day. ツ
Antti Martikainen, you have surpassed yourself. What an enthralling and melodious folk metal video you have composed. I will love this until the Gods claim my soul. Cheers from Scandinavia.
Gives me the taste of Stratovarius with Nightwish in the Last of the Wilds
Geor's Tunes
So much Finnishness distilled in that song! Great one Antti!
As I listen to this my Elder Scrolls Oblivion play through becomes Glorious!

And now, a live concert please. Seriously, this would be a great show to see. All there instruments and players, choirs. Man...
Lychee Chong
Bought a copy of The Kalevala after listening to this. Amazing song and visual!
It has become a daily ritual to listen to great pieces of this song and send myself into a meditative state. I wish you great joy.
Antti perkele ei petä!

Dunno how I got from a finnish man screaming at a black bear to this, but I'm not dissapointed in the results! Nicely done with this whole album, Antti. You're phenomenal at this stuff!
Tricia Stuart
This looks interesting. *clicks link* ............ O.O ............ what. have. i. been. missing....
Just wanted to say thank you. Your music is how I calm myself after difficult days. A friend of mine put me on to you after I mentioned that I was looking for the soundtrack to a particular game. Thank you for creating such beautiful music.

I use to be the audio engineer for our drama department, using a 40 channel Yamaha sound board with 3 sub channels for each main. With the experience that I have, I enjoy hearing music, not just the latest pop song or rock song to hit the top 100 list, but actual music that takes some talent to compose, something original. Some instruments just do not go well together like cellos and electric guitars, bagpipes and electric guitars... etc. On some occasions they can be pulled off but in this case here, Mr Antti, you’ve not only pulled it off sir you have absolutely destroyed those boundaries!!! The amount of work that goes into constructing a beautiful masterpiece, or to tell a story or even have the music take you on a fantastic imaginary journey just by closing your eyes and allowing a clear mind to flow with the melody is something not found in our current society! I thank you sir for creating an original, beautiful, melodic masterpiece! My musical heart goes out to you good sir!

I love this track a lot. It makes my mind wonder to distant wild mountains in which wolves run free. Amazingly made
Kuro Yuki
Best 25 minute in a long time
Isak Viklund
Funny how there's alot of mountains in the video despite finland being the second flattest nordic country after denmark, i'm swedsh btw. A couple mountains look too pointy to even be norwegian so i'll bet that they're alpine, don't quote me on that. Some shots are even reused but mirrored and i didn't even notice until now. Oh, yeah, absolutly adore this masterpiece... too much? nah.
The whole song is pretty amazing, but The Forger of Horizons part is sooo good.
Miranda Hawley
This song is fantastic and its crazy nice to hear a metal variety of music that doesn't spend most of the song screaming or half of it cussing. Also you feel taken away to the worlds in the beautiful pictures as shown in this video! Beautiful!

If the footage wasn't epic enough (hard to believe it's still our Earth) and there is also this music.
If the soul is a flame... Then listening to this has turned my soul into a raging inferno!

#Antti Martikainen Music,where did you get the aerial views and the time lapse videos and the slo-mo video of autumn?
Yvon-Sebastien Landais
I know that this sounds like a weird question. But is this what it looks like, when you go astral projecting?
Absolutely beautiful!!! Brought a tear to the eye and sent shivers down my spine!
I'm lost for words, so beautiful, in sound and vision.

Hey man, I think I will include you in my PhD "thank you" section. I think I have coded ~10k lines or code or more to sound of this video, and read ~100 papers. To hell with "relaxing study ambiance music <3 (sun emoji)" videos.
I bought the album a couple of weeks past and I love the entire thing!! Hope you do something like this again! From Sweden
