Finnish metal band, now disbanded.
Sentenced was started in late 1989 in Muhos, Finland, when Miika Tenkula (lead guitar & vocals), Sami Lopakka (guitar), Vesa Ranta (drums) and Lari Kylmänen (bass) changed the name of their earlier band Deformity into Sentenced. They released two demo tapes with this lineup and already the first one, "When Death Joins Us..." (1990) lead to a record deal with the French label Thrash Records. Having a record deal the band was not requisite to do another demo, but nevertheless "Rotting Ways To Misery" (1991) was recorded to promote their new material. Later in 1991 bass player Lari Kylmänen was replaced by Taneli Jarva little before the recordings of their first full-length "Shadows of the Past", which was released on the same year. At that time Sentenced was playing fairly typical European/Scandinavian death metal, and being influenced by e.g. Death and Swedish bands such as Entombed and Grave.
In 1992 their new demo "Journey To Pohjola" got the attention of the newborn Finnish label, Spinefarm Records. Their second full-lenght, titled "North From Here", was released on the same label in 1993. This was also a transition period as Taneli Jarva had taken the position of lead vocalist in the band. The bands music and songwriting skills had also developed vastly, resulting in much more technical, and at the same time, more original approach to death metal. In 1993 Spinefarm also released the "The Trooper" EP to support the release of the album. "North From Here" got also noticed around the world and the German label Century Media signed Sentenced to their roster in 1994.
In 1995 they released what is considered to be their best work by many fans and critics, "Amok", on Century Media. The album was a breakthrough for the band and was supported with two large tours, which made the band's name known all over Europe. On these tours bass was handled by session musician Niko Karppinen (of Maple Cross) which gave Jarva freedom to concentrate on vocals and being the front figure of the band. In late 1995 they also released the "Love & Death" EP
Then, in the summer of 1996, bassist and singer Taneli Jarva surprisingly left the band. His replacement, Ville Laihiala, was found just few weeks before the band was heading to Germany's Woodhouse Studios to record follow up to "Amok". With the new vocalist Sentenced recorded "Down", which paved way for the band's sound to evolve in a more melodic way. Also, not having a dedicated bass player in the band, Miika Tenkula played bass parts on the album. On tours following the release of "Down" bass was handled by Sami Kukkohovi, a former bandmate of Laihiala, who was granted a permanent position in the band in the spring 1997.
With this line-up the band recorded four more albums. "Frozen" (1998), "Crimson" (2000), "The Cold White Light" (2002), and last, "The Funeral Album" in 2005 when they also announced their retirement. The release of this final album was followed by a special funeral tour that culminated in band's funeral gig in their home town Oulu on October 1st 2005. As the band stated, no reunion will be possible, ever.
