Poisonblack

Featuring former Sentenced frontman Ville Laihiala, Poisonblack are a Finnish goth metal band that emerged to mainstream success in the mid-2000s. The band was founded in 2000 by Laihiala (born June 13, 1973, in Oulu, Finland), who at the time was the lead vocalist of Sentenced, a chart-topping Finnish metal band. Laihiala had made his debut as the frontman of Sentenced on the band's fourth album, Down (1996). He sang on all five of the band's subsequent albums on Century Media Records, including the chart-toppers Crimson (2000), The Cold White Light (2002), and The Funeral Album (2005), plus the swan song CD/DVD live album Buried Alive (2006), a double-disc recording of the final Sentenced concert, which took place on October 1, 2005. Toward the end of his tenure with Sentenced, Laihiala founded Poisonblack as a side project in which he could focus on playing guitar. The band is comprised of Janne Markus (guitar), Antti Remes (bass), Tarmo Kanerva (drums), and Marco Sneck (keyboards), in addition to Laihiala. He made his album debut with Poisonblack in 2003 on Escapexstacy, on which Charon singer Juha-Pekka Leppäluoto is featured on lead vocals. The album was a minor hit at best, and Laihiala resumed activity in Sentenced after its release. However, after the breakup of Sentenced in 2005, Laihiala resurrected Poisonblack and sang lead vocals himself this time. The resulting album, Lust Stained Despair (2006), was a huge success, reaching number two on the Finnish albums chart and spawning the Top Five hit single "Rush." Third album A Dead Heavy Day (2008) couldn't rival the blockbuster success of Lust Stained Despair, but it was popular all the same, reaching the Top Ten and spawning the single "Bear the Cross." ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi

Always wondered about this band having heard their name many times. I like this.

Personally, I thought the singer from Charon was far better than Ville.

Great song. Great band. A lot of people are not aware that Juha-Pekka Leppäluoto from Charon is the vocalist for this album and read that Ville Laihiala is featured as the vocalist, he's actually lead on guitar. It wasn't till after the release of the album and after the their tour, that Ville took over vocals/lead guitar and JP left to continue with his band Charon.

Sounds like so many other Finnish Goth Rock bands that emerged in the late 90's-00's. Still like the style though.
Report as inappropriate
the vocal melodies in this song are strikingly similar to those in a certain soilwork song...

I concur fully with Dennis. Escapextacy was more brooding and gothic than their latest two albums. Their latest two albums are nothing more than pop rock. Vocally, Escapextacy trumps. They will never reach the emotional depth in the prodogy which is Type O Negative... But then again, no band will ever.

Ville is awsome! I like both Poisonblack and Sentenced, but personally the lyrics in Sentenced' songs were more to my liking. (not knocking on Poisonblack, cause they are great)

Had it not been for Type o Negative, I would have never been exposed to this band, accidentally I found I am a Norweigian Metal Head. Everything I have heard since I found this channel I have liked, Rock on Pandora!!!!

Really enjoy this band pre vocalist change.

I think the more albums they put out the more the quality digresses. I really enjoy, 'Escapexstac y , ' and about half of, 'Lust Stained Despair,' but 'A Dead Heavy Day,' just doesn't do it for me. Just my opinion though.

I want to take Ville as my second husband!

Peter Steele has reincarnated as a Fin. Totally fitting.

Poisonblack is a masterful project with a very defined curve in the music; the recurrence of contradictor y personal issues and desires is a killing theme that Ville Laihiala does to perfection and the raw emotional feel of "Of Rust and Bones" proves this.

Nah, the singer doesn't sound anything like Peter Steele, but I can see how someone would initially think that.
