History

Barren Earth was formed in 2007 by Olli-Pekka Laine of Amorphis fame. The band mixed modern metal influences with progressive rock of the ‘70s. The band signed to Peaceville in 2009 and followed with 2009’s Barren Earth. The band was announced as winners of that year’s newcomers in Finnish Metal Expo 2011. Barren Earth would release a new full-length album, The Devil's Resolve, on March 13th, 2012 through Peaceville Records. In the summer of 2013 the Finnish band lost vocalist Mikko Kotamäki. Apparently, the man was too busy to commit to the band.

In early 2015, Century Media Records signed Barren Earth, which featured Kretor guitarist Sami Yli-Sirniö. The band’s album would be out that spring. The band calls itself “death metal,” but features a keyboardist. Jón Aldará was on vocals.
