1. Crimson Tears - Gothic Metal from Finland:

The band was originally put together by Matti Rahkonen and Jussi Peltonen in 1997. The bands these guys had played in earlier had fallen apart, and it was time to start a new project. Soon Jarkko Yli-Kiikka joined the group as a singer, and shortly after that drummer Mika Toivari and a local guitar hero Ville Leppänen came in. The basis was now formed, but something was still missing. That something was a female vocalist and keyboard/violin player Niina Kärppä, who joined the band in 1999.

In spring 2000 the group released their first EP, Snowfall. It included five songs: Snowfall, Tears Will Vanish, Season of Floods, Bending the Truth and All the Memories.

Things seemed pretty well, but some trouble came up when Jarkko Yli-Kiikka suddenly decided to leave the band for personal reasons. The band was now without a main vocalist. However, the members considered this only as a minor setback.
