Biography

Widescreen Mode was formed in Riihimäki in 2003 by drummer Janne Aaltonen, singer Samu Brusila, guitar player Janne Lahtinen and bass player Janne Stenroos. The name of the band represents the things you can’t see on the screen. Eyes wide open to the world.

The debut album, “Until The End” was released in Finland on November 2007 through Dark Sentiments and Playground Music Scandinavia. It was produced and recorded by Jani Loikas (also the “Hello World” and “Another Day” EPs), mixed by Anssi Kippo (Children of Bodom, Stam1na, etc.) and mastered by Thomas Eberger (The 69 Eyes, Opeth, etc.).

“Until The End” debuted on the Finnish Top 40 album chart at the end of 2007. The first single “Everlasting Bomb” stayed No. 1 for several weeks on the official Finnish download chart and has received massive airplay on the national Finnish radio stations. The second single “Dead Inside” shot to No. 1 on official Finnish Top 40 singles chart in January 2008.

“We just wanted to make the album that we always dreamed about”, says singer Samu Brusila. Adds drummer Janne Aaltonen: “We wanted the album to be pure, organic, and real”. Mission accomplished. With electrifying riffs, compelling melodies and a classic metal attitude, Until The End is a collection of everything that makes Widescreen Mode one of the most unique new artists in heavy rock: pure, uncompromising metal that refuses to stick to any single formula.

Not that the natives sons of Finland are new to this game. Actually, they’ve been playing separate or together in various outfits for years. At 15, Janne Aaltonen (drums) shared a band with then-16-year-old Janne Lahtinen (guitars) called Aggessive Influence.

    Fallen From The Sky album seems to be a pretty good return to form after disappointing The Hanging Man.

    Pretty good. I notice that someone went to the James Hetfield school of vocals. Funny.

    Tuli nähtyy livenä äsken. Jees meininki, joskin hiukka itseään toistavaa on materiaali, joka sentään juontaa juurensa jostain 80-luvulta mutta silti kuulostaa ihan Widescreen Modelta. Ja laulaja on tosiaan vähän niin ja näin... Eikä ollu mikään supliikkimieskään. :D Muistakaa, että keskiviikko on pikkuperjantai...
