Completely Off Topic: Finnish Metal

You probably didn't wake up this morning with the realization that your personal music library has a gaping hole where the "Finnish Metal" collection should be, but on the chance that you did...let me plug Ahma, who have a new album due for release in May.  Their Facebook page describes Ahma as "a battle-proven, Helsinki-based quartet of adult men playing loud and obnoxious rock music," and notes that "[t]he sound of Ahma is thoroughly enhanced for hearing impaired, and can be best described as LOUD."  You can listen to a couple of their songs on their Facebook page.

What's the tenuous connection to Atlas Games?  Spikey-mohawked vocalist Janne Lönnqvist (he's the one on the side reading a book on their web page photo) has been our buyer at our Finnish distributor, Fantasiapelit, as long as I can remember.  He's always been great to work with, and I'm not just saying that because he's a long-time On the Edge fan.  If you like really loud metal music (or just are curious about the impact of "heavy machinery and concrete shoes" as musical inspirations), you should check 'em out.
