Finnish metal band Koitos has released a single and a music video for the song “Ilman kurssia” (eng. “Without course”), which is the first release from the upcoming debut album.

“The song is about how self-centered behavior can lead you to be rejected by everyone. The narrator of the song adventures in maritime atmospheres, from which we also got the inspiration for the stormy atmosphere of the music video”,

describes vocalist Matti Hiitti.

In addition to the composition and lyrics, the song was recorded and produced entirely by the band itself. In addition, the band’s bassist edited the music video and worked as an video shooting assistant. The song was mixed and mastered by Rami Nykänen, who has previously worked with bands like One Morning Left and Balance Breach.
