Poets Of The Fall

Born and based in Helsinki, Finland, rock band Poets of the Fall formed in 2003 around core members Marko Saaresto (lead vocals, guitar), Olli Tukiainen (guitar), and Markus "Captain" Kaarlonen (keyboards and production). Having built its own studio, the band was able to release a single -- "Late Goodbye" -- shortly thereafter. By January 2005, the Poets had a number one album at home with their debut, Signs of Life. For its hard work, the band was rewarded with the Best Debut Album of the Year and Best Newcomer of the Year trophies at the following year's Emma Awards (a Finnish version of the Grammys). In April of 2006, the Poets released their next album, Carnival of Rust, which also hit the top spot on their nation's charts -- it even managed to share real estate on said charts with the band's debut (still selling great guns) -- and went on to become a huge seller. In addition to their massive sales and critical acclaim for their recorded work, Poets of the Fall also managed to headline some hugely popular tours. In order to bring their sound to the people, however, the band needed some expansion, and recruited Jani Snellman (bass), Jaska Makinen (guitar), and Jari Salminen (drums). With the success of album number two to promote, the Poets managed -- this time around -- to tour in seven different countries, including a stop in Asia. The band wound down 2007 by ending its tour, and winning yet another cache full of industry awards. The rest period wouldn't last too long, however. A new single -- "The Ultimate Fling" -- was released in January 2008, and was soon followed by the full-length Revolution Roulette in March. The album, unsurprisingly, rocketed straight to the top of the Finnish charts. April would find the band back on the road, playing shows in Europe and Asia, as well as a first jaunt to the United States, performing in Los Angeles. ~ Chris True, Rovi

I can honestly say that I was not a big music fan a couple months ago but then one day I was really upset because my family kept saying things that hurt me. I cannot even count the times I fell asleep crying because of them but anyways one day I ran to my room went to Pandora and hit a random genre and one of POTF came on. I guess you could say that's when I started to understand why people had said music helps them because after listening to music more I have felt a little better. Now I listen

I wrote the Pandora support a while ago asking for them to buy their other albums... maybe if more people ask? They need to put the rest of their discography here.

Poets of the Fall is my favorite band. Marko Saaresto has a wonderful voice. My dream one day is to meet the entirety of the band. I hope they come to America on a tour or something. The poetry of the bands music is astonishing. It shares a lot about life, and gives obvious life lessons if you pay attention. It is truly inspiring.

Honestly, coming from a fan of stuff like R.E.M, this is a very surprising breath of fresh air. It is sort of reminds me a bit of R.E.M "Automatic for the People" with a heavy rock twist to it, don't be fooled, songs like "Someone Special" are softer, but just as great, if not better. First heard of these guys from their amazing "Late Goodbye" in Max Payne 2 back in 03.

One of the greatest bands out there. Considering travelling to Europe to see them: they are absolutely incredible - the lyrics are so meaningful and the music is hauntingly beautiful.

Heard these guys the first time on the credits of Max Payne video. Finishing the game at 4:34 AM and hearing Late Goodbye sort of made an impression. Signs of Life and Carnival of Rust are great albums.

I am sad that not very many people here in America have heard of POTF. These guys are awesome.

And here's what music sounds like...Ameri c a doesn't seem to realize that! AND they can play live, unlike some bands I know! I wish I could see you guys live, but they don't have enough audience in the US... :'(

Sad that they don't have the Alan Wake soundtrack songs that they worked on. Poet and the Muse is a frequent listen on my youtube playlists for music.

I can't believe they only have one Album by the Poets on here... I'm sure pandora has every cd released by lady gaga. It's alright though, I WILL NEVER PAY for pandora.

Its really funny because i think theres just something about Europian bands that is AMAZING. Every band ive listened to from Europe is different, they dont sell out. Imeen yea America has great music but all ive found that alot of it is just terribly sold out like FFDP(Five Finger Death Punch). I love Peots their my favorite band, but like Nightwish, Within Temptation, The Stones and so many more are just amazing. You guys up there really know how to make AMAZING music,

wolf, the reason is because twilight thetre and some of the songs on it are in alan wake, therefore, creating a possible copyright issue. that and artists are paid a set percent or price for each time a song is played Ex: Lift would give them say $5 each time its played and theyre probably to cheap to get the other albums/song on pandora (it sucks, i know D:)

I found out about them after playing Alan Wake. Their song was just so... Mm, it was perfect. I wish I had learned about them sooner, but as most say, better late than never! I fully intend to get all of their CDs when I can.

The Poet and The Muse. <3

I think all these comments below says it all: POETS OF THE FALL ROCK!!!!
Why doesn't the band get more airtime? Well as I see here Pandora only has one cd, the first one, where are the others? Maybe Pandora should check into adding the other three, especially since Poets of The Fall have a new song coming out, Can You Hear Me, which will be featured in a new video game, Death Rally, created for iPhone.....w h a t does the band have to do to get recognized?
