Fear Of Domination: Metanoia-2018.

Fear of Domination is a Finnish melodic death and industrial metal band from Nurmijärvi , which was founded in 2006.

The band was founded in the summer of 2006 by the singer Saku Solin, the guitarist Jan-Erik Kari and the drummer Jaakko Arteli. Lauri Ojanen was added as bass player, before Marko Salmikangas was added as second guitarist. The latter, however, left the group in 2007 [1] . [2] The band’s name comes from bassist Ojanen and was originally intended as a title for a song. [1] The band continued its activity after the departure of Salmikangas with only one guitarist continued and so also played concerts. In the summer of 2007, Johannes Niemi joined as a further guitarist. [2] Niemi had been friends with Solin and Ojanen since childhood. [2] In the following period was DemoPerfect World recorded and other appearances were held. Later there were disagreements between the members, which could be resolved, so that the way to another band expansion by the keyboardist Niina Telén in 2008 [1] was free. In 2009, the debut album Call of Schizophrenia was released . The album was recorded in the D-Studio in Klaukkala . Before the release, the band was also from Petja Turunen from the band Turmion Kätilöt on his label Osasto A-Recordsbeen contracted. After the release, more appearances followed, for example at the after-show party of the Tuska Open Air Metal Festival or as a support act for Deathstars on their tour through Finland in early 2010. The band also recorded demos for the next album and worked on an EP which should contain the songs Coma and Modify , among other things . The EP was never released, however, as the recording of the second album began in the summer of 2010. Shortly before that, Arteli had left the line-up due to musical differences. As a replacement came Vesa Ahlroth, who had already helped out with the band when Arteli was unable to attend. In 2011 the second album followedCreate.Control.Exterminate. at. The song Pandemonium was released as a single . Matti Remes joined the band as promoter and manager, which enabled her to perform at larger events. With the addition of the sound engineer Papa Wilske, the performances also became more professional. In spring 2012 Telén left the band, whereupon Lasse Raelahti took over the keyboard. Raelahti had previously been with the group as a temporary worker and merchandise seller. This was followed by other appearances such as 2012 on the Myötätuulirock , in which Helena Haaparanta contributed vocals, and a small tour with Mass Murder Agenda through Finland and Swedenat. During a performance in Kuopio , the band met Hanna Niskanen, who then supported the live performances as a lighting technician. In 2013 the group began pre-producing new songs for the next album in D-Studio. The single Paperdoll was released in the spring . The song was also played at the following concerts. In the summer, Fear of Domination went back to D-Studio to record the album. Helena Haaparanta trained and produced Solin’s singing before the recordings were finished towards the end of the summer. Another single, Legion , was released in autumn , for which a music video was created for the first time . During this time there was also a small tour of Finland with theRussian band X-None performed. The booking agent Ismo Korhonen also signed the band. In February 2014 the album Distorted Delusions was released. At the same time, the band was on a major tour of Finland before appearing on the Nummirock that summer . In autumn they went on their first tour through Europe . In August 2015, a music video for the song El Toro , which is included on the later album, was released as a foretaste. Another single followed in May with Adrenaline , followed by the album Atlas in the same monthfollowed. At the beginning of 2017, Helena Haaparanta separated from the band in order to be able to concentrate on other projects. Sara Strömmer suggested this as a suitable replacement for female vocal passages in live shows. Since the band found the collaboration with Strömmer to be harmonious, she officially became the second singer next to the singer Saku Solin. The band announced this news during their performance at the Tuska Open Air Metal Festival, although even Strömmer had not been informed of this beforehand. In the summer of 2017, the band wrote new songs and was also booked for SaariHelvetti on the Finnish island of Viikinsaari , which belongs to Tampere . [1]
