The band started out their musical adventure from scratch in 2003. Singer Marko Saaresto sold everything he had to invest in pursuing the love of his life – music. After 15 years, Poets of the Fall are still one of most popular Finnish band in Europe.
Marko and his friends Olli and Captain started the band in Marko’s parents basement. The result of the first session was blend of rock, metal and industrial sounds. The band’s first single Late Goodbye was written for the acclaimed computer game Max Payne 2. Reaching millions of people through the game, the song earned the guys international recognition. Since then, they released seven records and five of them reached number one in Finnish chart. October 2018 sees the Poets returning with the new record Ultraviolet.
