Sami Hinkka, bass player of Finnish folk metal giants ENSIFERUM and power metal act METAL DE FACTO presented the first taste of his upcoming debut solo EP under the alias ssSHhh. Watch the lyric video for “Weight of the World” below.
Sami Hinkka comments, “When COVID-19 canceled touring plans for both of my bands, I decided to use this time to record my first solo release. The idea of an industrial metal project has been in my mind for years. Now, I had the time and the themes for the songs were not hard to find just from reading the news and witnessing the global climate. The song ‘Weight Of The World’ tells about overworked healthcare workers. Whilst not the most traditional topic for a metal song, it’s very important and increasingly relevant in the current world and fits the song very well.”
The self-titled ssSHhh EP will be released digitally on all major platforms Friday 30th October.
