Finnish rockers Poets of the Fall — singer Marko, guitarist Olli and keyboardist Captain - started out their musical adventure from scratch in 2003. Marko sold everything he had to invest in pursuing the love of his life, music, with his buddies Olli and Captain. He moved into his parents’ basement, when he couldn't keep a place of his own any longer. The guys then built a little studio of their own in Captain's living room for the recording and producing sessions, and kept an office in Olli's beat up old car. The result of the recording sessions was a blend of pop, rock, metal and industrial sounds. Later the guys were joined by guitarist Jaska, bassist Jani and drummer Jari. The band's first single was Late Goodbye, written for the acclaimed computer game Max Payne 2. Reaching millions of people through the game, the song earned the guys international recognition and the first prize at the G.A.N.G. Award in 2004. Their debut album Signs of Life (2005) and the following three albums Carnival of Rust (2006), Revolution Roulette (2008) and Twilight Theatre (2010) all went to #1 on the official album charts, making Finnish chart history by giving the band four number one places with their first four albums. Since then, the band has released four more studio albums (Temple of Though 2012, Jealous Gods 2014, Clearview 2016, Ultraviolet 2018), a compilation album (Alchemy Vol. 1, 2011) and a live DVD (Live in Moscow 2013).
