AWESOME SONGS! That's all I can say.

Now Wiki time ->

Poets of the Fall (POTF) are an independent rock band from Helsinki, Finland that was founded by Marko Saaresto and Olli Tukiainen in 2003. The members are Marko "Mark" Saaresto, (lead vocals, guitar), Olli Tukiainen (lead guitar), and Markus "Captain" Kaarlonen (keyboards, production); during concerts, they are accompanied by Jani Snellman (bass guitar), Jaska Mäkinen (rhythm guitar) and Jari Salminen (drums, percussion).

The Poets released the singles Late Goodbye and Lift before releasing their full-length debut album Signs of Life in Finland. The album was certified gold in May 2005 and platinum in April 2006. It topped the Finnish Top 40 chart in weeks 4 and 7 of 2005, and stayed on the list for 56 weeks.

The song Late Goodbye marked the beginning of the band's popularity since it is featured in Max Payne 2 as the game's ending song, as well as a recurring theme in the game. The second single, Lift, is featured in the computer benchmarking program 3DMark 05 by Futuremark which has close ties with Remedy Entertainment, the developers of Max Payne 2.

The band has won several awards which include the 2004 Game Audio Network Guild (G.A.N.G.) Award in the "Best Original Vocal Song – Pop" category for Late Goodbye, "Best Finnish Newcomer" in YleX's "Best of 2004", "Newcomer of '05" during Musiikki & Media Events, and two Emma Awards for "Best Newcomer of the Year" and "Best Debut Album of the Year". They also won the "Best Finnish Act"-award at the 2006 MTV Europe Music Awards.

Poets of the Fall performed live for the first time ever outside Finland in Berlin during Popkomm 2005 and released Signs of Life in selected countries. The second album, Carnival of Rust, was released in Sweden in September 2006, in Australia, Russia and Ukraine in October 2006 and in Germany on 20 April, 2007.

The band's third album, Revolution Roulette, was released in Finland on 26 March, 2008. Their latest single, Diamonds for Tears, was released in Finland on 21 May, 2008.

The fourth, yet-untitled album by the band will be released in Spring 2010.


YES A FOURTH ALBUM! Long time though -_-

I came to the music thread just to make a new topic on this! But Acey, you stole the thunder Sad

Man, these Poets are some of the best people in the music industry. What culmination of tunes and lyrics they got! Desire, Carnival of Rust, Late goodbye, All the way for you and my current addiction- Lift are some of the best songs EVER! Rock music with a difference, that's what they are(wait a sec, is that what they call Alternative rock? Ahhh).
