Agonizer  


This is a case of perseverance paying off, as the band worked hard year after year, releasing a slew of demos between 1998 and 2004 but never getting the record deal they wanted despite a growing fan base, though they came close to signing with Century Media around 2002. Finally, Spinefarm came to the rescue, signing the band for their debut album, Birth/The End, released in 2007. Their music is kind of a cross between the classic Finnish goth rock/metal and a more traditional power metal style. The songs are straightfoward and accessible, with vocalist Pasi Kärkkäinen rarely deviating from a strong, husky midrange voice, and keyboards being a major component of the overall sound. This isn't groundbreaking, but it is solid, and for those looking into accessible (dare one say catchy) goth-tinged power metal should check these guys out.
