2003 – present (14 years)
Alasin was formed in Turku, Finland, year 2003 by Ville, Vesa and Tuukka. First the group had a female singer/bass-player, but it didn't work out, mainly because the different musical interests between the male and female members.
In the year 2004 Antti joined in to handle the four-string and the band found their musical course, which is a mix of simple, heavy riffs (like Trio Niskalaukaus) and progressive elements (like CMX). When Jani joined the band to take care of the singing duties, the band was ready to go.
Unfortunately Jani, Tuukka and Ville had to go through their mandatory military-service between years 2005-2006, which meant a "break" in the progress of the band.
Late summer 2006, after the three were back in action, Alasin recorded their first demo, which included almost every song the group had so far written. First gig was also played on late spring 2006.
On March 2007 the group released their second demo, Valkea verho.
Alasin went through some line-up changes during the summer 2007, Tuukka decided to focus on other things and was replaced by Toni, who made his first appearance on stage in August 11th.
Band released their third demo on November 15th 2007, called DNA.
On January 2009 Toni decided to leave the band and his place was taken by his little brother Samu, who had his first appearance with the band in Turku Bandstand contest, 5th of February.
