Then there was Teemu Tuominen playing the four stringed stick, and then vocalist Ilja. In those days (the year of 2002) was the first official EP, "DARK", recorded. The recording, mixing and mastering was done by own hands and with a great help from Atte Tanskanen, the organist of a Heavy metal band called Kiuas. The result was outstanding considering that "DARK" was born in a rehersal shack with own recording equipment. In 2003 there were multiple line-up changes for Iconofear.
First, Lars Carlson was invited to the band as a bass player. Ilja Jalkanen and Markku Nareneva left the band to concentrate fully on their band Kiuas. Then began the long and painful search for a new singer and drummer. Finally Rami Kokko brought himself and his drumming skills to Iconofear, and then, Thomas Vee stepped in as a singer.
With this line-up, Iconofear recorded their second EP "The 13th Circle" in 2004-2005. In the year 2006, after numerous succesful live performances Iconofear recorded another EP "The Unbreathing". In 2006, guitarist Timo Aspiala replaced Rami Kokko as a drummer and Kasperi Heikkinen stepped in as the guitarist number two. In 2007 Lars stepped out, so Eerik Purdon took the bassplayer role.
The singer and keyboardist Heidi also stepped out to join the band Amberian Dawn, so Iconofear found a new vocalist - Mika "Limppu" Lindberg, with whom the band entered studio in February 2008. Right now the band is recording their first full-lenght album. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
