Recenze Backstreet Battalion:
První regulérní album Ariho projektu Kareliaani vyšlo minulý rok jako CD na Dim Records (na CD byly i čtyři písně z EPka Patriot). Letos vydává album Patriotic Force This Means War Records na desce. Celkem je tu devět songů (je v tom instrumentální a tajuplné intro s názvem Mythologia Fennica, kde jsou slyšet i smyčce a tři songy z jejich stejnojmenného debutu limitovaného 100 kousky, které jsou ale podle zvuku nově nahrány – song Free North, Torsten Stålhandske a Kustaf Horn – ta je jen na vinylu). Podle názvů písní je vidět, že se kapela hodně motá kolem finské historie (jména patří finským vojákům, kteří bojovali ve třicetileté válce na straně Švédů). Další dva songy se týkají prozměnu historických bitev – Breitenfeld (další instrumentálka) a Bomarsund. Ostatní songy jsou Patriotic Force, Finnish Lions a Rauta Salama (Železný blesk). Celkem tedy pět anglických songů na dva finské. Muzika je spíše pomalejší a táhlá a temná, i když jsou zde i o něco rychlejší kousky (jako třeba Rauta Salama). Zvuk kytary je celkem nápaditý (uslyšíte to například v titulním songu Patriotic Force nebo v songu Breitenfeld, kde na Vás skutečně dýchne atmosféra středověké bitvy). Obal desky je naprosto parádní, alespoň pro mě, protože á tyhle historické momentky mám moc rád. Jak už jsem psal v recenzi na jejich EPko Patriot, jejich muzika se mně osobně líbí více než Ariho ostatní projekty a tahle deska to jenom potvrzuje. Tohle se Arimu opravdu povedlo.

Review Backstreet Battalion:
First regular full length album from Ari´s project Kareliaani was released last year on CD through Dim Records (with four bonus songs from Patriot EP). This year This Means War Records put this on LP. Together there is nine songs (including instrumental dark intro called Mythologia Fennica with string instruments and three songs from s/t debut limited to 100 copies which are re-recorded - Free North, Torsten Stålhandske and Kustaf Horn – this one is just on LP). According to the song titles the lyrics are about history and wars (the names are took from some soldiers and generals who fought in 30 years war on Swedish side). Other songs are about historical battles – instrumental one called Breitenfeld and Bomarsund. Other songs are called Patriotic Force, Finnish Lions and Rauta Salama (Iron Lighting). So together there are five English songs and two in Finnish. Music is slower and dark but there are also some faster pieces (like Rauta Salama). Sound of guitar is really inspiring (like in Patriot Force or in song Breitenfeld which has really atmosphere of middle age battle). Cover of the LP is great and I really like these historical paintings. As I wrote in review on Patriot I like this project more than his other stuff and this LP just proves it. This really worth buying!

Review American Oi:
Finish vocalist/guitarist Ari seems to be a busy man when it comes down to music with several bands he plays and sings in. Most appealing bands when it comes down to Oi! music are Kalevalan Viikingit, Skinboiss and Kareliaani. With Kareliaani he released the album “Patriotic Force” last year on CD through Dim Records where the new songs got bundled together with the 2012 “Patriot” EP released by This Means War. This Means War now releases the 9 new tracks on the format this label is known for, vinyl!
 
So if you already got the album on CD, you won’t find anything new besides the fresh artwork and one bonustrack. But if you haven’t got “Patriotic Force” on CD yet, like me, you will get 9 new tracks in that typical musical style Ari is known for with some of his other bands. While Kalevalan Viikingit leans more to his viking rock / metal side, Skinboiss is a pure Oi! band and I think Kareliaani leans somewhere inbetween of these two bands with a mixture of both styles as well as a mix of both songs being in Finnish and English language.
 
There is something really dark and threatening when it comes down to the sound of Ari’s bands, and Kareliaani is no exception to this. Don’t expect any fancy, all polished up in the studio Oi! music from Kareliaani. This band sounds raw and dangerous much alike the earlier mentioned bands. And I must admit, when I first heard Kalevalan Viikingit and Skinboiss I had to get used to this significant sound, but I started to appreciate it. “Patriotic Force” from Kareliaani is no expectation, besides the fact that I am already used to the sound so I could appreciate this record straight from the start.
 
So if you like any of Ari’s other projects, this is a no brainer. Even if you already bought the CD this is an easy pick up, This Means War always unleashes top quality vinyl productions and with “Patriotic Force” they added yet another one to their already impressive catalog!
