Biography

The story of Distractress started in November of 2005 in Tammela when two long-time guitar player friends, Aatu and Miika, had an idea of forming a band. First thing to do was to find a drummer. That turned out to be easy job as Aatu knew Lasse who was studying in same Upper Comprehensive School with us. In those days we were 14-15 year-old-studs.

First gigs were played without a bass player. Later on we found Jape from the very same school. At first Aatu was afraid of asking him to play with us since he wasn’t that much into heavy metal as we were. After one played gig he had to quit due to his another hobbies. Fortunately that turned out to be very good thing – now we had to ask Aatu’s brother Elias to fill up the band. We felt immediately that Elias was the right guy for the job. Since Elias’s joining we know what Distractress really is.

After two years of rehearsing and ten played gigs we went to record our very first demo. Elias and Aleksis switched places in front of microphone. More gigs were played. In august 2008 the band performed at the first TLY open air metal festival ever in Tammela together with their musical heroes, Amoral and Diablo, and many other great bands. Later in october Distractress played as an opening act for Kill The Romance and Medeia in Blue Pool.
