Morningstar formed in 1989 by Ari Honkonen, under the name of Testator. In 1990 the name was changed to Thor’s Hammer and in 1991 to Morningstar. On their first demos they played black metal.
Considered the National Epic of Finland, Kalevala is a collection of folk poems that were collected by Elias Lönnrot. The first edition was published in 1835.
The band was disbanded in 2007 due to lack of time, personal differences and drummer’s severe injury.
Ari Honkonen had his own zine called “Pagan Kalevala” in the early 90s.Visit Website
