Biography

Codeon is a modern metal band from Helsinki, Finland, playing technical yet melodic, aggressive metal.



2002
Everything was started in October 2002. Sami had just moved to Helsinki and was looking for a band, while at the same time Lauri was forming one and looking for members via the internet. E-mail discussions began, and eventually other members were found. Over the course of several meetings, the general style of Codeon’s music was developed.



2003

Finally, in March 2003 Codeon started to play together as a band. It was immediately painfully clear that things weren’t going to work out with the current lineup. Members were going in and out until Vesa was found in summer 2003. The lineup seemed to be stable for a while, but wasn’t — the second guitarist took off in the beginning of August, just two weeks before the band entered the studio to record their first demo, DEMO 2003. Sami handled all the guitars on the demo and a new second guitarist was soon found after the studio work. After receiving mostly very positive reviews of DEMO 2003, Codeon began writing new material and preparing for live shows.



2004
The first gigs were played in May 2004 and the band began planning for a new demo release. However, since there were more than just a couple of new songs and everyone wanted them recorded, the band decided to book some more studio time and record a self-financed EP instead.
