The four members of Helsinki’s melodically rocking the Rasmus formed the band in 1995 while still in senior high school because Finland’s British music scene — within their own words — “sucked.” Their debut, Peep, quickly went gold within their homeland, producing the members rock and roll stars at age 16. They quickly documented and released the follow-up, Playboys, which also proceeded to go gold and gained the group an Emma, Finland’s edition of the Grammy. Their third record, Hell of the Tester, included “Water,” a monitor which was voted Greatest Single of the entire year by Finland’s music critics. 2001’s Into proceeded to go dual platinum in its indigenous country, using its debut solitary, “F-F-F-Falling,” likely to the top from the charts. A global audience began to build, as well as the music group toured throughout European countries. It paid when 2003’s Deceased Characters climbed to number 1 in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
