Shaman was a folk metal band from Lahti, Finland. It was formed in 1993. The musical style of the band is quite distinctive, especially in the slow songs, due to its entrancing atmosphere created by the monophonic, "narrow" synth sound making the deep contrast to the spacious sound of the acoustic guitar, the shamanic drum and yoik singing. In 1999, Shaman released their debut album, Idja, which you may download in mp3 from our site. The song "Ođđa Mailbmi" was also released as a demo/single before the album's release. It was produced by Roope Latvala, well known as the guitarist of the Finnish metal bands Children of Bodom and Sinergy. The band's final album, Shamániac, was released in 2002. Shamániac was the last album released by the band under the name of Shaman. The album has been produced by the Shaman frontman Jonne Järvelä and Samu Ruotsalainen, the drummer of the Finnish folk metal band Finntroll. In 2003 Jonne Järvelä disbanded the band.
