Taneli's deep rumbling voice was replaced by Ville's warm and clear delivery. The dark-maned Finn immediately put his own touch to the new, melancholic and pain-ridden songs. The band put out an album almost every 2 years. Following "Down" in 1996 came "Frozen", "Crimson" and "The Cold White Light". Sentenced decided to lay the band to rest with the final album "The Funeral Album" in 2005, at the peak of their career.
It gives a taste of all eras of the career of Sentenced. The band's only DVD "Buried Alive" came out in November 2006 (in most European countries). The DVD includes the final show in Club Teatria, all videos (including an upcoming video of "Despair-Ridden Hearts") and some extra material of all those years. Their guitarist Miika Tenkula was found dead in his home on February 18th 2009. He was 34 years old. Vesa Ranta (drummer) said: "Miika had a serious drinking problem for many years which escalated after Sentenced was buried. They don't call it King Alcohol for nothing..." An autopsy revealed that he had suffered from a genetic heart condition, and suffered a heart attack at his home on February 18, 2009.
