was first perfomance) which were played early versions of songs included in
the album "ruthlessness".Band's image was first used on the second gig ( called «Black Winter Day»,
same name of Amorphis song ), where the mantle were gray-black, later on
was changed to black."
What is it about music that made you want to form a band?
"Definitely heavy music, mainly extreme styles."
