Sentenced: Nominated for three (!) Finnish Metal Awards 2005!
Sentenced:  Nominated for three (!) Finnish Metal Awards 2005!
Defunct and dearly, dearly missed Finnish metal act SENTENCED has been nominated not in one, not in two, but in three(!!!) categories of the Finnish Metal Awards 2005: “Album of the Year”, “Cover Art of the Year” and “Band of the Year”! The awards ceremony will be held on the Finnish Metal Expo on February 17, 2006.

“The Funeral Album”, the swansong of the masters of suicidal and melancholy-driven metal, had already reached gold-status in Finland for selling more than 15,000 copies over the counter. Also, SENTENCED had succeeded in topping the Finnish album charts upon the album’s release in May 2005 as well as making it up to No. 49 in the German Media Control chart. Rave media and fan reactions made this an unforgettable final release of a band that will be remembered!

With an intense and emotional show on Saturday, October 1st 2005 at Club Teatria in the band’s hometown Oulu, SENTENCED delivered an impressive “onstage-farewell” to their dedicated fans, which travelled to Oulu from various countries just to see the band say goodbye with a big bang!
SENTENCED’s very last show was filmed and recorded by Klaffi Productions from Oulu, Finland (who previously worked with the group on their "Ever-Frost" video) and will be released later in 2006 by the band’s label-home Century Media Records as a live DVD (tentatively titled "Buried Alive"). So, at least on DVD all fans of the band will be able to recall the magical spirit of SENTENCED “beyond the grave”…
