Spoken words, thoughts and actions need a goal. That requires finding another road. METANOIA is a gift and a task. It’s an early morning and a new beginning. You are awoken with Psalm 51 and you take the first step towards the EXIT.

Biography

brightest debut in Latvian guitar-music for last few years. (Jânis Þilde, music critic, www.tvnet.lv)

metanoia is definitely a pleasant addition to the Latvian new music choice and their album Ordinary undoubtedly is the most powerful rock music debut album of the year in Latvia. (Dace Volfa, music critic, Music Sun)

There is a focused and a much-promising potential in the first Metanoia CD, which is usually difficult to be achieved having been together for less than two years. (Valdis Pâns, FHM)

At the end of year 2004 Uldis joined Janis, Krists and Kristaps and they put their musical experiments and searches under a name “metanoia”. The first concert was just after few rehearsals with great response from the listeners which made to think that guys have met with a purpose. Since that time a lot of things have changed, but love to one another and music has grown and permanently fixed.

The idea about album grew stronger when they started to do more concerts outside Latvia in Germany, Estonia and Lithuania. June – October 2005, was the period of time when they recorded their debut album Ordinary, which ideologically point to simplicity, but at the same time uniqueness. Just like the fingerprints which are seen on the album design. Seems to be very simple and ordinary, but at the same time unique, because there is only one of the kind.

There are 10 songs with a bonus track, which were recorded at the “Sound Division Studios” and “Latvian Christian radio music recording studio” by Brian J. Lindsay (USA) who was the main sound engineer for this album.

At the very beginning of year 2006 Addicted was presented as the first single from upcoming album. The song immediately got into the playlists of biggest commercial radio stations in Riga as well as regional radio stations in Latvia. Soon after huge interest was showed from the main music and entertainment mass media. The music critic Janis Zilde ( www.tvnet.lv – leading news portal) recognized metanoia as a brightest debut in Latvian guitar-music for last few years. The debut album reviews were published in all influential and leading mass media (Izklaide (Entertainment), Muzikas saule (Music sun), FHM, Cosmopolitan, Delfi.lv, Tvnet.lv and others), but over all compliments from critics, more delight is received from every listener who has bought debut album and with his/her presents creates this special atmosphere in every well received metanoia concert.
See me coming back was the second single from metanoia album, which fallowed first single addicted which has been in radio SWH lobby top10 for 16 weeks.
The future plans are to provide metanoia music spread over the borders of Latvia.
“We’ll have to work hard, but at the same time we’ll have to day-dream a lot, because dreams and desire to realize them makes us work even more enthusiastic/harder. All we want to do is to be in this world and share with what we have received. After all, if we can stir up imagination, open up ones mental outlook and to help to find revelation – we couldn’t wish for more. The highest thing what we could hope is that in this big triad, there would be involved all parts – God, metanoia and listener. “
