Biography

Ikuinen Vaiva´s history:
On the fall of 1999 when Arto Tolonen(drums) and Mikko Nissinen(guitar, vocals), who were old friends to each other, after completing their military service, both in the age of 20, they decided to form the Hardest Rocking band with extremely heavy and intensive sound in town Sotkamo, in mid-Finland. Those days they were heavily influenced by hard, Finnish alternative bands such as Kotiteollisuus and Mana Mana. One important thing to mention here about their lyrical decision was that there were not many bands like Ikuinen Vaiva that where singing in finnish like and playing that hard and intense. In fact it was not just a case of choosing the language of their lyrics but Tolonen and Nissinen just felt it more natural to have it sung in their mother tongue than in any foreign language.

First for all, one guy (remains here nameless) wanted to have a go as a singer those days. However, it was oblivious that the basic idea/opinion of what kind of music this recently formed band would become to create was totally different with this first singer candidate guy compared to Nissinen`s and Tolonen`s own visions. Anyway, this guy tried his part as a singer in only one single rehearsal, and it was for all to be seen that he wasn`t the frontman for this group. Nissinen was somehow then forced to take the role as a lead while taking care of the riffage at the same time by the fact that propably there would not be anyone around at the time who could make it as a throat man of their band. Nissinen and Tolonen decided to go together on.
