Poets Of The Fall


Recommended Posts

I don't know how many of you have heard of Poets Of The Fall but they are one of the biggest name here in Finland. Several albums under their belt, they´ve just released a best of CD/DVD called "Alchemy Vol. 1".

Gaining recognition through games like Max Payne and Alan Wake these guys are one of my favourite bunch of musicians. Below some picks from their career, ranging from ballads to rockers.

I heard one of their CDs about 2-3 years back... maybe even a bit longer. Was not a fan at all. Can't hear these samples at the minute, but did they ever get any better? At the time they had that "typical" bland, sad and depressing Finnish sound. Did they ever get a bit more animated?
