Blackstar Halo (formerly known as Downfall) is a melodic metal band from Tampere, Finland. It’s been always clear to the band that instead of focusing on showing off with their musical talent, Blackstar Halo is all about creating songs with movie-like atmospheres, tight rhythm sections and indelible choruses. Interestingly, but not denying their Finnish influences, Blackstar Halo aims to sound as Swedish as possible with a hint of American megalomania. As the lead singer Ville describes BSH’s music: “Our music is extremely well polished and well produced entertainment. That is probably our greatest strength along with the strong melodies.”

Blackstar Halo was originally formed by Kalle Tulonen and Timo Eskelinen back in 1998. The band as it was at the time was called Downfall and consisted of Kalle, Timo, Jani Peippo and Hannu Kumpula. After some years of playing and partying, as Kalle and Timo finished school, a promo EP was recorded. Soon after (2000) as Dimitry Martynoff joined, the band got a record deal and released the self made EP “Dark Parade” and started recording their first full length album “My Last Prayer”. The album was released 2002-2004 through various licensing deals in Finland, Germany, Russia, Baltic countries, Canada, USA and Japan.
