RIP fellow rocker

Oh, fuck, this sucks so much. His work on Ajattara's Murhat blew my mind.

Kunnes taivas meidät erottaa, Tonmi.

Man, what a important notice! He was so good. I hope they contract a new one soon, and as good as him.

Why does death always overtakes the drummers? Not fair,they are the unit of the band!Not only for his magnificent work will he be missed but for being a good person mostly!
Rest in peace Otus,you'll be missed!

One year later...

"WHAT THE HELL 2013."

Two years later...

"WHAT THE HELL 2014."

Three years l-...you get the point.

This will be only true if the world doesn't end in December 21st this year or later

On a more serious note, even though I am not a huge fan of the band, such things are always sad news. RIP.

He was a really great drummer (Sinergy, To Hell And Back... really good drum stuff) and has my respect.

This guy was a fantastic drummer. A damn shame he died and so young.

Died at the age of 38?? Hm :/
Rest in peace.
Boxcar Willy - 16.02.2012 at 03:18  
Is anybody else creeped out by that thumbnail?
Susan - 16.02.2012 at 03:54  
They don't say how he died. He was 38! Too young for an explanation-free death.

And yeah, his work with Sinergy was fearsome.
LeChron James - 16.02.2012 at 04:01  
DAMN. Hope he went painlessly, that's fucking awful.
WorpeX - 16.02.2012 at 05:41  
Bring Kita back please. We know everyone in the bands name by now anyway, was a stupid reason to kick him.

RIP Otus.. great drummer.
M C Vice - 16.02.2012 at 06:56  
Of all the members of Sinergy, I thought he'd be one of the last to go.

Never liked this band peace of crap but To/Die/For , Singery, Ajattara .... was awesome

Yesterday Tonmi's family informed the press that his death was sudden and it's still unclear what caused it. It wasn't a suicide. His friend found him dead in his appartment.

It wasn't this bad in the first months of 2011, was it now? It's February and you've already got like five to six musicians dead and Tony Iommi with cancer. :/

Yes, it was.

Five to six? I haven't really been keeping track, but it seems like a normal number. Musicians are people, dammit.

Didn't he just recently join them? That really sucks. My condolences.
