Take Finnish self-made booze, the gloom of Fields Of The Nephilim plus the compact riffing of Metallica, and you're getting pretty close to the magic formula of Finland's extremely successful, sadly disbanded legend SENTENCED. After Ville Laihiala (Poisonblack) joined the band and 1996's "Down" spread its addictive gloom, SENTENCED achieved various "album of the month" awards as well as impressive chart results incl. top 3 in their home country and top 50 positions in Germany. Nearly super stars in Finland, the band's authentic depression and resulting destructive lifestyle ultimately led to the end of a truly astonishing career. Now, on time with the 20th anniversary of "Down", Century Media Records proudly present the band's last four records on 180 gram vinyl, housed in gatefold sleeves and specially mastered by Patrick W. Engel / Temple Of Dishamorny (Iced Earth, Possessed, Dissection). Get some red wine, mix it with vodka, and cherish true classics of gothic metal!
