Re-Armed have been up since 2001, when five guys in Kerava, Finland decided to start
playing music similar to so-called “Göteborg metal”. Their musical style has evolved along
with many demo tapes and critically acclaimed debut album “Worldwide Hypnotize”.
Becoming a style that is combination of technical, grooving death metal with thrash and
grind influences, spiced up with melodic lines.
During the years some line-up changes have occurred the band but they have still
managed to grow musically, as well as individuals. Be sure to keep your ears and eyes
wide open when these Finns roll to your country!
New album “Rottendam” will be released in the end of 2013 and YOUR town will be next one
that they will conquer!
