Here’s my newest song – a guitar ballad, called “Scorpion” (2016). Hope you like it!
This is the first released song with my new artist name Avalkis. The track will be in the upcoming album Tree of Love – and Other Ballads from the Darkened Sun. Featuring f.ex. acoustic/electric guitar and piano ballads, celt and medieval inspired songs.

Thanks to Matti, Hanne and Onni for our recent live band sessions and jammings that inspired me to finish this song faster than I would have otherwise! (There might be a rock version with our band at some point when we have time with our busy schedules.)
UPDATE: Due to request from my good friend and artist Joonas here is the whole “Scorpion” song with the ambient intro that originally belonged with it :).

Here are the lyrics:
in this life, or the next
that I’ve yearned, for so many years
I have come for… your love
Will you know me… There’s so much to feel
it’s trying to sting, but it cannot hurt
It is your love, that I can always trust
When I am home sick, far away
I have become, someone I once knew
Do you know us, there’s so much to learn
still you’re the treasure, I almost gave away
for what I am, and what’s left of me
for what I am, and what’s left of me ”
PS. The original working title for this song was “A Seed of Hope” which referred to “Acid of Hope”. Because it’s interesting to note that the base for this song is originally an acid trance song I composed in 1998. That might explain some of the sounds and melodies appearing in the final build-up :). Also a certain 1980s/1990s nostalgia is present. I will release the trance version too later.
tässä elämässä, tai seuraavassa
jota kaivannut oon, kaikki vuodet nää
olen tullut, sitä hakemaan
haluatko tuntea minut, olen vielä elävä
se aikoo pistää, mut’ satuttaa ei voi
se on rakkautesi vain, oi armain
kun eksynyt mä, kaukomailla oon
itseni mä tapaan, vuosien jälkeen taas
meidät vielä, on paljon opittavaa
Olet aarre, jonka kerran, melkein kadotin
rakkauden, mitä jäljellä mus’ on
rakkauden, mitä jäljellä mussa on”
