Vote: If you could decide, which band would return: Sentenced or HIM


Ok granted this is just for fun cause we all know Sentenced will never come back and my highest respect goes to them for sticking on that decision. Rumor is they were offered quite a large amount of money to do just one show but they declined from that too. Anyways, both great bands, Sentenced... Continue Reading →

Throes of Dawn and Furciferi at Leipätehdas, Vaasa 7.4.
