AVERLANCHE have released a new track, “Little Lotus,” which tells a tale of corrupted beauty and takes the listener on a journey into a beautiful snow-covered forest.
AVERLANCHE released their new single, “Little Lotus,” on January 27th, 2023, along with a Hollywood-style music video. The single is taken from their upcoming second album, “Arctic Atlas,” and is available on all streaming platforms. Other singles that have been released from the upcoming album are “In The Theater of Fire” and “Killing Floor,” with a music and lyric video respectively.
“Little Lotus” tells a tale about corrupted beauty and combines the freezing north wind with an atmospheric verse, brought to life by Otto Haalahti‘s beautiful guitar playing. Creating the song and filming the music video were experiences that happened exactly at the right time for the band.
“The idea for ‘Little Lotus’ came from the guitar melody in the song’s verse. Originally I composed the melody on my keyboard, but later on I changed it to be played by the guitar. ‘Little Lotus’ was easy to shape into its final form and everyone in our band agreed that we just have to shoot a music video for it. It is fun to play and I can’t wait to play it live at our concert at On The Rocks in Helsinki!” says Antti Kopra, keyboards

The band have been recording their new album within the last year. It has been carefully put together, taking every detail into consideration. “Arctic Atlas” will be released in spring 2023, digitally as well as physically.
“We are almost done with the recording process; our last trip to the studio will be in the beginning of February. I can’t wait to listen to the entirety of the album for the first time. There will be many surprising elements and even surprising guests!” says Antti Kopra, keyboards.
“Working with Averlanche has been interesting and almost felt like time travelling. We have been working on the album for about a year, from demo sessions into arrangement and production. We started building the album from the many new songs Antti Kopra brought to the table. ‘Little Lotus’ was the first song that stuck out to us, since it isn’t the typical sound one would expect from Averlanche. The main melody is annoyingly catchy. In my opinion, it is the best song on the album,” says Joonas Rinne, producer
AVERLANCHE will celebrate the new single by playing it live for the first time ever at On The Rocks in Helsinki on January 27th, 2023, together with DOROTHY POLONIUM and MEMOIRA.
AVERLANCHE is a Helsinki-based melodic metal band, founded in 2017, combining catchy melodies with beautiful female vocals. Their sound is influenced by Finnish heavy metal music from the ’90s and early 2000s.
