Combining alternative metal and screams to poppy melodies, Merta are a newcomer the like of which has not been heard in Finland before! Shameless pop hooks create a fresh contrast to the otherwise heavy sound, resulting in a wide fanbase that is almost void of genre limits. The readers of Soundi magazine voted Merta into the Top 10 of Finnish newcomers last year, while the Kaaoszine readers’ poll placed them all the way into Top 3.
