History & Biography
Formed by Laurenne and Arnkil in 1989, the Finnish thrashers followed a familiar pattern of releasing an average album and following it with slower and more subdued records. Early demos included We'd Like To Sing, Epoch Of Insanity and Spaced out. The bands influences were Metallica and Testament. The band's claim to fame might be the assistance of Stratovarius' Timo Tolkki in the mixing of Total and a tour with Accuser and Headhunter. Total was recorded in 1993, released by Shark Records in 1994 and licensed to Teichiku Records for Japan in 1995. The band ended life as a metal cover band called Huge Snake. Laurenne has gone to co-own Sonic Pump Studio where Nevergreen has recorded, while Peltonen works as a survival guide in Lapland. While on a break Arnkil had joined Abhorrence with whom the band once shared a rehearsal space. Titus Hjelm, who was in Thunderstone later, took over the bass towards the end in 1996.

Minotauro Records was issuing music by Antidote, featuring Nino Laurenne (Thunderstone) and Tuomo Louhio (Impaled Nazarene) in 2017, which was originally issued in 1992.
