Elokuutio is the seventh studio album by Finnish progressive metal band Stam1na. It was produced by Janne Joutsenniemi and mixed by Jens Bogren.[1] The album's title Elokuutio can mean eloquence, but can also be translated as "living cube". Lyricist Antti Hyyrynen describes the album's theme as the "digital hell of the unreligious".[2]
