Cadacoss-wreath of seven stars from the album-Corona Borealis

my favorite death metal band!

When they formed in 1997, Finland's Cadacross had it in their minds to play aggressive death metal, but after a set of poorly received demos (1997's Power of the Night and 1998's The Bloody Way) they began swerving toward accessibility, adopting increasingly melodic power metal and folk music elements that were simultaneously becoming all the rage in their homeland. Thus transformed, Cadacross featuring
screeching vocalist Georg Laakso guitarist Tommi Saari
keyboardist Mathias Nygärd
bassist Jarkko Lemmetty
and drummer Janne Salo

made their debut with 2001's So Pale Is the Light album, which was released by the independent Low Frequency label.

Cadacross' metamorphosis was not yet complete, however, and when vocalist Laakso informed his comrades that their next album would take them even further away from their violent death metal roots, everyone in the band either quit or was fired. Unperturbed, Laakso picked up a guitar and proceeded to surround himself with new members:
Sami Aarnio (vocals)
Tino Ahola (guitar)
Jukka-Pekka Miettinen (bass)
Antti Ventola (keyboards)
Nina Laakso (backing vocals)
and Kimmo Miettinen (drums)

prior to recording 2002's epic metal opus Corona Borealis.

Corona Borealis-2002

From where the eye can see beyond miles
From the top of mountain high
I found it shining on the ground
Blood-red like dragons tear it was

The second by placing spoon on a stump
From magpies nest I obtained
What a beauty met my eyes
When silver in daylight sparked

From where great rivers run down to the ocean
Where winds weep and waves forever sing
From there I found the third, on a reef
Like blazing fire it was
burning like a lively golden flame

From where the treetops reach out to the blue sky
In the deep woods, where no man-made pathways go
From there the fourth-one I did find
From inside the trunk of great pine tree
On a mossy bed scarlet glew and I went on

To a place where goblins once used to live
Long before our days
At the end of cavern deep and dark
I found it, gray as a dragons scale
For you my sweetest wolverine I forge a wreath of seven stars
So that in the times of darkness it reminds us
Of the glory of our days

Beyond the horizon where crimson sun sets
We will sail to our haven afar
If winds favour and the storms let us go free
With sails of silver, with helm of gold
Towards the cosmic seas we sail
Wreath will guide our way
Descending glory of our days...
