The release that came a year before...

Officially Pyre of the Black Heart was released in 2020 however there was a release that came out in 2019 under the title "Mustan Sydämen Rovio". It is essentially the same music and artwork only the lyrics, titles, and insert are all in Finnish. Unlike Pyre of the Black Heart which was produced by Nuclear Blast, Mustan Sydämen Rovio was produced by Savonian Rooster LTD Oy. One other difference is that Mustan Sydämen Rovio came with a wide clear piece of tape on the cover signed by Marko Hietala in gray marker.

One video was released off the Mustan album, then re-released off it's Pyre counterpart a year later. Isäni ääni begins with the same iconic intro as Voice of My Father with Marko Hietala's reflection in a mirror and a double guitar in back off to the side. The two videos diverge quickly. While both use a backdrop of underwater setting, Isäni ääni changes this backdrop often showing more barren backdrop scenes and mirror scenes with Marko's reflection as he is playing and singing. Both can be viewed on YouTube.

Though Mustan Sydämen Rovio is extremely hard to find in CD from the US, it is not impossible to find from overseas sources. Though, even in 2019 when it was released it was difficult. The only two countries selling limited copies, in my experience, were Finland and Russia.
