Biography

Cardiant was formed in the year 2000 by Antti Hänninen and Dave Alberti. Next to join were Vesa and Valtteri. After trying out with Janne Iivanainen as the singer, Tuomas Helander took over as the frontman. After a few years, Dave Alberti parted ways with the band, and was replaced by Late, Antti’s brother.

Cardiant recorded several demos, before getting a recording deal with Underground Symphony. During the recording of the debut album, Tuomas had severe problems with his voice. As a result, Cardiant was forced to have Janne Saksa as the session singer on the album, and start the search for a new singer. Summer 2005 saw the end of the search, as Tuple Salmela joined the band.

Cardiant started co-operation with Janne Saksa again on summer 2007 because Tuple Salmela was busy with his other band called Tarot. Illusion Game is taken from their current promo material recorded in the begin of 2007.

    New record is controversial, more hard rock (or just rock?), less power metal, almost all the melodies go through weird twists and don't end as you suppose they would. The only completely coherent tune is the Japanese bonus track which is the best track on the album (big surprise). Female vocals didn't really change much, maybe added a bit of diversity but certainly didn't ruin the music. The band is able to write some good stuff like Justice Turns into Revenge, Beat of Heart, Love's Not on My way or Can't Reach the Ground, but the general level of "catchiness" is not so high and some songs are a bit unmemorable. Still it's relatively good and enjoyable. 6/10

    i prefer the faster pace of their first album, HOWEVER, that being said, Tomorrow's Daylight is beautiful and has more melodic presence than most power metal bands' entire discographies. The melodies are just amazing. Not a bad song on the entire album. the song 'Somehow' does feel a little odd though, as it contains a techno-like beat in the chorus, it's fun and catchy though. Definitely recommended to fans of melodic metal :)
