Re-Armed have been around since 2001, when five guys from Kerava, Finland
decided to start playing similar music likened to so-called “Gothenburg metal.”
Their musical style has evolved along with many critically acclaimed demo tapes,
gigs, lineup changes and a well-received debut album Worldwide
Hypnotize, which was released internationally on January 2012 via Massacre
Records. After releasing their debut, the band supported names such as Chimaira,
Suffocation, Origin, Cattle Decapitation and Cryptopsy for the tours in Europe.
In this year Re-Armed also made their first big outdoor festival appearance at
Bloodstock Open Air at Catton Hall in the UK.
The second album
Rottendam was released on January 2014 via Eternal Sound Records, but
major lineup changes froze the band almost for a year. Former
guitarist/songwriter Tommi Helkalahti decided to leave the band, leaving
vocalist Jouni Matilainen as the only current former member in the band.
