Alase is an atmospheric metal/rock band from Finland. Their music is a melting pot of various genres, but the main focus is on the melody and atmosphere.
There are a lot of influences outside metal music as well. Lately Alase has added more and more elements from post rock and progressive metal. Musically, Alase has similarities with bands like Katatonia, Swallow The Sun, A Perfect Circle, The Ocean and Pain Of Salvation, just to name a few. Lyrics have been so far in Finnish except on the new Vastaus album there is one song also in English. Alase's speciality is that they use different vocalists on different songs.
