Biography 2004 The story of 2nd Suicide began during spring 2004 when three gentlemen from the capital area of Finland, Lauri Helenius (guitar), Janos Pap (guitar) and Vesa Norrbacka (bass) decided to join forces and create a band. However, shortly after this Janos felt the urge to explore the planet earth and moved to Australia. After lots of hassle a replacement for Janos was found. Heikki Laakso joined the band to play guitar and in addition his roommate, Tero Arvola, joined as a drummer. To complete the circle of 2nd Suicide we put up ads on several websites announcing that we were looking for a singer. The last one to audition was Ator The Barbarian, a.k.a. Toni Toivonen. His growling capabilities convinced us and there we had it; a full line-up. 2005 During the late summer of 2005 Heikki got fed up with the whole Gothenburg-sound and resigned so it was time for some more ads. Mikko Pekkanen took the bait and joined our ranks on the last quarter of 2005. 2006 During the winter-spring 2006 2nd Suicide had its first gigs and our first demo, titled An Epitaph For The Proud, was recorded on June 2006. Shortly after the recording-sessions Vesa showed lack of motivation towards 2nd Suicide and eventually resigned during the darkening days of October. A month passed without a bass player until we got news that a friend of a friend who happened to play the bass had just resigned from his former band. He joined us for our rehearsals a few weeks later and so Joni Kauppinen was recruited. At the end of November 2006 Tero moved to Malaysia as an exchange student and was replaced by Wellu Helenius also known from The Wake. 2007 Our 2nd demo, titled Last of Kin, was recorded during January 2007 with the new line-up. Mixing and mastering took place during February. Later in the year 2nd Suicide was awarded free studio time for winning a competition and the result of this was Epitaph For The Proud CDS consisting of two re-recorded songs off our first demo. The single was eventually released in the beginning of 2008. The title track was also featured on a compilation disc. 2008 Wellu resigned in March to concentrate on guitar and his own musical aspirations, abandoning the drums altogether. The band was on the verge of disbanding due to motivational problems which resulted to six months of silence. In November the remaining members decided to pick up the slack and began a hunt for a new drummer. 2009 January saw the band complete again as Joonas Osara joined the band as a drummer. The rest of the year consisted of rehearsing and writing new material. 2010 A new demo/EP, Icarean Tomb, was recorded during September and was to be initially released during November but was delayed, however, due to some problems with logistics. 2011 Icarean Tomb was released in May and received positive feedback from fans and critics alike. In June we came to the conclusion that something was still eating the band from within and by mutual decision from both parties parted ways with Mikko Pekkanen to whom we are thankful of the years spent with us. The one guitarist condition was not long-lasting as after getting a few years to practice Wellu Helenius rejoined the band in July.
