PostSubject: Charon (you're free to comment :D)   Sun Aug 09, 2009 2:24 am

I decided to write a new topic about a Finnish Gothic metal banc (edit2: band... not banc.) Charon since I've been listening to it a lot now and gotta say that their current singer, Juha-Pekka Leppäluoto has maybe the best voice I've ever heard.

I am lazy now, so I pasted the text straight from Wiki Razz

Charon was founded in 1992 by Antti Karihtala, Teemu Hautamäki, Pasi Sipilä, and Jasse Hast and was originally a brutal death metal act. After releasing three promo albums and two demos, all self-released, the band signed a record deal with Emanzipation Productions. Through Emanzipation, Charon released their first two full-length albums Sorrowburn and Tearstained in 1998 and 2000 respectively. After touring with fellow Finlanders Sentenced, the band parted ways with Emanzipation and signed to Spinefarm Records.

During the summer of 2001 Charon recorded their third studio album Downhearted. Prior to the release of the full album, the single Little Angel, which rose to number 5 on the Finnish singles chart, was released. In early 2002, Downhearted was released, and it proved to be just as popular as the single. The album rose to the number 3 slot on the Finnish Album Charts while the video for the song "Little Angel" hit #1 on the Nordic Video List.

The summer following the release of Downhearted the band went on tour in their native Finland, and directly thereafter the band toured through Europe with Nightwish and After Forever. Then in April 2003, the band released another single, In Trust of No One, which made its debut at #1 on the Finnish Singles Chart. Five months later the Religious/Delicious single was released, followed quickly by the band's fourth studio album The Dying Daylights. Immediately after the releases the band went on tour in Finland to support the album.

In November 2003, guitarist Jasse von Hast left the band, citing a lack of interest in playing for the group and boredom with band-related activities as reason for doing so. Lauri Tuohimaa stepped in and officially became the band's new guitarist in January 2004. Charon then went on yet another tour through Finland to support The Dying Daylights.

After several more tours and the release of the single Colder, the band released its fifth album Songs for the Sinners on August 31, 2005. Since then the band has toured extensively in Europe and Russia. Concerning further releases, the band stated, during the summer, that they had six new tracks ready to record.

Their current lineup:
Juha-Pekka Leppäluoto - Vocals


Pasi Sipilä - Guitar


Teemu Hautamäki - Bass


Lauri Tuohimaa - Guitar


Antti Karihtala - Drums


Their discography:

Sorrowburn (1998)


Tearstained (2000)


Downhearted (2001)


The Dying Daylights (2003)


Songs For The Sinners (2005)


A few songs from Charon (edit, I really suggest to listen to them all a few times Wink):
Colder


Deep Water


Little Angel


Ride On Tears

Not very comparable for me, I know they're both Gothic but still no. Sentenced is an awesome band too. Leppäluoto has better voice than Laihiala in my opinion.
