For My Pain ...

For My Pain ... originated as a side project for a couple of members of Eternal Tears Of Sorrow, first conceived in 1999 and then shelved for a time before deciding to make a go of it in 2001, with several members employed in other bands. Musically the band is decidedly Finnish goth, a rapidly growing genre consisting of bands such as H.I.M., To/Die/For, Entwine, Poisonblack, and others. All of the above (or, perhaps, a mixture of them) serve as soundalikes for FMPs sole album, 2003's Fallen, as there isn't a lot of new ground broken here. Yet For My Pain ... do this style as well as any of them, with simple yet effective arrangements and a clear, classically goth croon from vocalist Juha Kylmänen. Though a full-fledged band now as opposed to just a side project, the various members appear to have priorities elsewhere, as it was announced in 2006 that recordings for a new album were to be delayed, essentially placing this band on the back burner for awhile.
