To/Die/For - Biography




The Gothic Rock/Metal band To/Die/For was formed over five years ago in Kouvola, Finland. They released a few self-financed (now completely sold out) mini-CDs under a different monicker, and with those CDs they managed to get a record deal with Spinefarm Records.

Their debut full-length album "All Eternity" was released in Finland in 1999, and a few months after its release it was licensed to Nuclear Blast in Germany and to Pony Canyon in Japan. The track "In the Heat of the Night", which was released as a single in Finland and added as bonus track to the licensed versions of "All Eternity", was also made into a video which was played frequently at several music channels around the world.

In Autumn 2000 To/Die/For successfully toured Europe with Dark Tranquillity, Sentenced and In Flames. After the tour, To/Die/For's bass-player Miikka Kuisma decided to quit the band. The search for a new bass-player began immediately and a few months later they decided to hire Marko Kangaskolkka for the job. Kangaskolkka had already played with To/Die/For during the band's early years, so it was an easy decision for the band to pick him instead of the other candidates.

To/Die/For's second full-length album "Epilogue" will see the light of day in Finland on the 7th of May 2001. The album features guest appearances by such Finnish artists as Lullacry's Tanya , and is once again packed with catchy, gothic, melodic tracks mixed by the famed Mikko Karmila of Finnvox Studios. The first single released from the album, called "Hollow Heart", went immediately to the top of the Finnish single-charts, Epilogue really is an album to wait and to die for...
